Your Role:

Global Relay is a place where you can make an impact as a user researcher. This is because our user research function is new and we expect you to come with ideas and energy to help shape it. Our chief designer has grown her team to 25, doubling it in size during the last year. She sits on the company board and reports directly to our CEO who wants to see the company transformed into a design-led organization. This role provides an excellent opportunity to help solve tough problems and create great experiences that have a significant impact on our customers.

This specific role will focus on our most central product, the communications archive. You will help set the direction for our designs that support our customers in getting the most value from it. This may be achieved by reducing their mental workload, by rationalising workflows, by adding new features etc. We need you to provide us with the evidence to make the right user-informed decisions.

We are looking for a mid-level UX Researcher who champions our users in all phases of the product management cycle. From context and problem framing all the way through to the delivery of meaningful solutions. Conduct research to understand our customers’ problems, work with the business to understand their needs, collaborate with designers and developers to design the final products.

Your Job:

  • Build relationships and partner with key stakeholders, product managers, designers and developers to evaluate product goals and strategies to identify opportunities and conduct research to generate deeper insights
  • Conduct research to understand our customers’ problems, collaborate with product owners, designers and developers to integrate research findings and usability into the final product
  • User research: conduct field studies, surveys, interviews, ethnographic studies, demographic analysis to combine with product research, and various mixed methods
  • Comparative and competitive research: analyse and stay on top of competitive products, industry and market trends
  • Usability testing: create test plans with the product and design teams and facilitate usability sessions in person and/or remote using various tools to validate designs with customers and provide actionable recommendations
  • Run discovery workshops with business and product teams to bring them along and help identify customer-driven needs
  • Communicate research results and provide recommendations using data and metrics through written reports and group presentations to stakeholders and the design team
