SonarCloud is a SaaS application for code quality and code security. We help developers find bugs and vulnerabilities in their projects and give them a methodology on how to fix it.
Historically, SonarCloud inherits from the UX of SonarQube, our on-premise solution for code quality and code security. We’re now determined to make it a real cloud product with a user journey of its own, and thus we need SonarCloud to evolve to meet the standards of modern cloud services in terms of UX.
To achieve this, we need to form an understanding of our user's behaviors and needs. We want to make informed decisions when it comes to designing new features and fine-tune the experience so our product can seamlessly integrate with a developer’s workflow. This is why we’re looking for a self-starting, highly motivated UX Researcher to help us establish our research practices and capabilities.
The impact you can have
Until now, we’ve had generalist Product Designers who also conduct UX research. As part of our growth, we’re establishing roles for dedicated UX Researchers, and seek a pioneering contributor to be our first one. While this role will not be easy, it is a remarkable opportunity for a motivated individual to establish a UX research practice at scale. While we have ideas (integrate usability testing as a key part of the development workflow, and embracing generative practices), we’re looking for a leader to guide us.
SonarSource has product leadership that is hungry for the kinds of direction-informing insights that good research can bring. So, while there will be challenges in getting strong research practices off the ground, this role has advocates in high places.
This position will be appealing to someone ready to face big and exciting challenges. We need a best-in-class user experience to sustain rapid growth in user adoption and retention. You will play a key role in the team by identifying creative approaches and solutions to user research and help us build a desirable experience for SonarCloud users.

Every day we are focused on solving developers’ next big problem.
