UX Researcher

User Experience (UX) Researchers work to answer the most challenging questions in design.

They reveal what users need from our products by conducting primary research, exploring behaviors and motivations, and working with teams of designers, product managers, engineers, and others to develop new features. They inspire change by delivering exciting presentations about their findings. Most importantly, researchers help the UX team understand what makes a user’s experiences feel more intuitive, accessible, and even magical.
