You should have some experience with UX design and research, and a bonus if you’ve studied design thinking.

You will work closely with mentors who have had many years of experience in User Experience Research and with a cross-functional team to help deliver against a roadmap, execute research at all stages of the end-to-end design process and keep customer insights alive during product development design.

  • Produce design deliverables that communicate design solutions and facilitate discussion.
  • Look at usage metrics, and customer feedback to highlight patterns and areas of focus that may need attention.

This is a very hands-on role and includes helping with participant recruitment, data collection, data synthesis and analysis, and delivery of design recommendations.

Required Skills/Experience
