The Hired Guns are seeking a passionate Senior User Experience Researcher to support the core UX team at a highly sought-after global tech company. This full-time contract opportunity will start out remote, then post-COVID will move on-site in either NYC or San Fran.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
A leader in the fields of UX and research needs a Senior User Experience Researcher to lead a team that’s devoted to collecting and analyzing user feedback for the development of new applications and features.
As Senior UX Researcher, you’ll work alongside designers and engineers, helping to create internal-facing applications and tools for over 200,000 employees. (If history is any guide, some of these projects may later become globally-used external applications!) You’ll master the balance of providing rapid research while supporting ongoing core foundational work, and you will move from project to project with the greatest of ease.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You have 6 or more years of experience with generative and evaluative research on internal tools and have worked closely and collaboratively with designers, product managers and engineers. You’ve worked with mixed methods research, you deliver results quickly, and you thrive in environments where fast change and ambiguity are the norm.
Because UX testing for digital products across web and mobile can pivot abruptly, you’re comfortable with changing direction quickly and are skilled at keeping several initiatives in the air at once. A focus on DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) is core to your research approach, and you always keep accessibility in mind. In your current role, you are moderating or designing end-to-end research. (Bonus if you have a background in anthropology, human-centered design, psychology, cognition, or sociology.)
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!

Working as a UX Researcher at this omnipresent brand will challenge you to flex your skills in a rapidly innovating environment. You’ll have resources aplenty (including the backing of a super-talented team) and limitless opportunities for growth.
