About the job:

At TripActions, “It’s all about the user. All of them.” We strongly believe understanding our users and solving their problems with innovative, elegant, technology-driven solutions is how we’ll succeed. The UXR team’s primary objective is to deepen our collective understanding and empathy around user needs, both stated and unstated.

We are looking for experienced researchers who can drive quantitative research from design through execution and socialization. As part of the Research team, you’ll work closely with product managers, designers, engineers, data scientists, and UXR leadership to develop a quantitative insights engine that directly informs how we create useful, usable, and delightful new products.

We are open to and actively hiring user researchers at all levels. If you’re an experienced researcher, we’d love to hear from you—even if this specific role isn’t quite the right fit.

What You’ll Do:

  • Prioritize, initiate, and execute end-to-end research projects to provide deep user insights and broad market context to impact product strategy, working across multiple complex projects and subject matter areas simultaneously.
  • Define metrics and measure user attitudes and behaviors, including introducing new and innovative approaches to measure users’ experiences and partnering with your technical colleagues to prioritize, design, and implement logging plans.
  • Conduct primary research to understand the attitudes, behaviors, and motivations of our users using a range of methodologies (logs analysis, surveys, discrete choice experiments, card sorts, etc.).
  • Select, consult with, and manage research vendors (assessing proposals, evaluating budget considerations, managing contracts, etc.).
  • Work in close coordination with Product Managers, Designers, Engineers, and Product Marketers to ensure research supports and helps to define goals, timelines, and deliverables.
  • Become an advocate for users throughout the product development cycle, especially as a participant in product discussions, design reviews, and postmortems.
  • Create high quality deliverables and present research findings to a broad range of stakeholders (executives, product managers, designers, engineers, customer support, marketing, sales, etc.) to ground our work in a clear understanding of our users or the market at large.
  • Identify new opportunities to create repeatable processes that help the UX team scale.

What you’ll need:

  • Significant experience contributing to a UX Research, experience or service design, or product team through a quantitative or technical lens.
  • End-to-end experience with all aspects of the research life-cycle (design, sampling, recruitment, execution, analysis, reporting, socialization, budgeting).
  • A strong understanding of the strengths and shortcomings of different research methods (quantitative and qualitative), including when and how to apply them.
  • Fluency in SQL and statistical concepts; bonus points for experience building Tableau dashboards.
  • Experience working in direct collaboration with product managers, designers, and engineers.
  • Demonstrated experience creating scalable UXR processes, preferably across international markets.
  • A bias for action. You are self motivated and comfortable bringing definition to ambiguity.
  • A positive attitude. You’re a team player and resilient in the face of challenges. Most importantly, you’re fun and a pleasure to be around.
