About The Job

User Experience (UX) Researchers work to answer the most challenging questions in design. In this role, you will reveal what our users need from our products by conducting primary research, exploring the behaviors and motivations of our users, and working with teams of Designers, Product Managers, Engineers and others to develop new features. You’ll inspire change at all stages of product development by delivering exciting oral, written and visual presentations about our findings. Most importantly, your job as a researcher is to help the UX team understand what would make a user’s experiences feel more intuitive, accessible, fun—and even magical.

With considerable experience, you evaluate all the features contributing to user experience, providing expertise, collaborating internally and occasionally leading projects. You contribute new processes and identify product and use requirements.

As the Quantitative User Experience (UX) Researcher, you will combine skills in experimental design, statistical analysis, programming, and human-computer interaction to shape the product and research direction for products used and loved by all Googlers.

As a key member of our team, you will work with stakeholders across functions and levels. You will solve challenging problems and empower the team to move forward by developing metrics, measuring results, and integrating new methodologies into existing systems. Through reports and team engagement, you will provide a UX perspective on quantitative data to help stakeholders understand their users.

You will identify and quantify problems, and embark on new research areas worth exploring through innovative methods by applying principles of rigorous and ethical research to build and improve products that satisfy users' needs and exceed their expectations.

User experience is at the forefront of how we create intuitive, innovative, and beautiful products that people love. We strive to learn and understand our users’ needs, behaviors, and emotions to gather insights that inform product strategy and design. Our UX teams include designers, researchers, content strategists, and engineers who are passionate about quality, usability, and simplicity. We work on collaborative teams to solve complex challenges and craft experiences that highlight our products’ unique capabilities and personalities. Our work touches billions while exemplifying a key principle that is core to Google’s philosophy: “Focus on the user and all else will follow.”


  • Examine existing data, product designs, and prior research to identify research gaps.
  • Generate hypotheses and develop research plans for quantitative or mixed quantitative/qualitative research into user behaviors.
  • Partner with Qualitative Researchers, Designers, Product Managers, and Engineers to define tasks, metrics, and goals to measure user experience efficiently and accurately.
  • Identify meaningful patterns and correlate signals to provide a coherent research insight and develop code and statistical models to analyze large-scale data sets and understand user behaviors.
  • Transform research findings into recommendations for the design and product management teams. Drive change by communicating findings to stakeholders in the company.
