User Experience Researcher

ettain group is looking to hire a User Experience Researcher to help us create engaging and meaningful interactive experiences. We’re looking for a UX Researcher who is excited about conducting and orchestrating user research efforts to learn everything about our users: their behaviors, attitudes and emotions. The User Experience Researcher acts as a user advocate, ensuring that products are designed with users’ needs in mind.

You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team of interaction designers, visual designers and copywriters committed to developing innovative, easy-to-use, best-of-breed new products and working to improve existing ones in accordance with brand guidelines.

This is not a design position. However, the User Experience Researcher is expected to have significant influence on designers and product management to deliver well-designed usable interactive solutions. You will have a notable impact on the business and work on exciting projects that can be different from day to day.

  • Conduct user research using industry standard practices
  • Employ creative methods to evaluate the user experience of our business solutions
  • Be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment
  • Work closely with visual and interaction designers, information architects, and copywriters to develop best-in-class solutions by representing the user perspective in all phases of design and development

Responsibilities:

  • Designing and conducting usability and user experience research studies – preparing test plans, recruiting participants, facilitating test sessions, collecting and analyzing data, and preparing reports
  • Lead a variety of user research methods: including usability testing, expert reviews, contextual inquiries, surveys, competitive research, focus groups, and card sorting
  • Conducting expert reviews of proposed solutions, leveraging prior experience to accurately predict areas of user difficulty and frustration
  • Developing and prioritizing recommendations based on evidenced-based findings
  • Tracking user experience issues from discovery through resolution
  • Presenting research results to product teams and senior management
  • Liaison with corporate research and managing vendor resources
  • Acting as the voice of the user during product design sessions, and being a user advocate at all levels of the organization
  • Partnering with external usability and market research vendors
  • Actively contribute to the User Experience Research knowledge base by sharing data and reports with UX, product, development and other teams
  • Working closely with the Director of User Experience to maximize the institutionalization of user-experience research within the entire organization

 

Required Skills:

  • Bachelors degree in Psychology
  • Minimum of 3 + years of proven, hands-on experience as a lead usability analyst and/or user-experience researcher on significant projects is a must
  • Expertise applying Usability and Human Factors methods in a web design environment is required
  • Experience with other research activities – surveys, user interviews, focus groups, and contextual inquiry – is required
  • Must articulate in both oral and written communications
  • Must manage time well, and is very organized and works well with others
  • Must have ability to manage overlapping assignments
