Grubhub is looking for a talented UX Researcher to join the growing UXR team. Specifically, we’re searching for a customer-centric and motivated researcher to embed with a Product team. This person will bring a deep expertise in qualitative or mixed methods research, and be able to independently design, lead, and execute evaluative and generative research at all stages of the customer lifecycle. They’ll turn this research into compelling insights that drive the direction of their product team and overall business.

  • Define key questions and hypotheses to help teams solve complex problems
  • Plan, design, and execute research studies, both evaluative and generative, employing a range of methods from usability tests and interviews to in-context ethnographies.
  • Synthesize data from internal and external sources to drive a deeper understanding of our customers to guide decisions.
  • Craft actionable stories to communicate insights to stakeholders within your team and across the business.
  • Be an advocate for the customer within your functional area, constantly striving to improve customer experience and downstream business outcomes.

  • Bachelor’s degree required
  • 2+ years relevant experience in qualitative UX research
  • Customer champion and practitioner of human-centered design methodologies

  • You’re skilled at crafting compelling stories from data to turn research into action
  • You’re adept at building relationships with stakeholders, partnering with them throughout the research process and influencing downstream decision making
  • Expertise in a qualitative research platform, such as UserTesting or UserZoom
