It's fun to work in a company where people truly BELIEVE in what they're doing!

Here at Boden we’re all about creating joy for our customers, by making them look and feel amazing.

It started with a shirt. Well, eight to be precise. In 1991 when Johnnie couldn’t find a ‘just right’ shirt, he crafted them himself from his kitchen table. Years later and he’s fronting a major British clothing brand with a turnover of £350 million. It took hard work, determination – countless cups of tea – and brand values that we still champion today; stylish, grounded, uplifting

We are excited to be looking for a UX researcher to join our User Experience and Digital Design Team, to help set up our in-house research capability and gain a deeper understanding of our customers their motivations, behaviours and challenges to enable our user-centred design approach.

From the initial discovery stage, you will be working with UX/UI Designers, Insights, Digital Product and Trading Teams to help build a shared understanding of our customers across the business, to inform thinking and shape initiatives by providing key recommendations and ideas.

  • Coordinate user research using a range of methodologies, including moderated usability testing, carefully considering the appropriate approach
  • Help define the customer strategy by clearly communicating learnings/insights
  • Work cross-functionally to help generate and validate ideas and concepts
  • Be proactive in sharing observations/learnings to the product teams, stakeholders and the wider business
  • Drive forward a customer-centric, learning culture and nurture a collaborative and uplifting team environment in which you and others will thrive
  • Be the advocate for the research practice, staying informed of industry trends and help to develop the in-house capability to its full potential

You’ll have:

  • A solid understanding and proven experience with a wide range of qualitative and quantitative research methods (such as usability testing, ethnography, contextual enquiry, persona creation, journey mapping, surveys, competitor analysis)
  • Proven experience of using and managing online research tools such as unmoderated remote testing and online surveys.
  • Experience using software tools for both lab-based and remote user testing such as and Optimal Workshop
  • An understanding of appropriate responsive device mix
