Do you want to join an innovative, early-stage Tech Start-Up in London?

Do you want to be the organisation's first User Researcher, giving you a unique opportunity to lay the foundations during a period of change?

Do you want to join an organisation that embraces flexible working… and dogs?

If the answer to all of the above is a resounding 'yes' then why not give this ad a quick read…

I am keen to speak with skilled and passionate User Researchers who'd be interested in joining a forward-thinking Tech Start-Up in the heart of London (not 100 miles outside of London). The business are well-funded, progressive and fun, with their product being utilised by a range of instantly recognisable brands in the UK.

The role is a key requirement in that they currently have no specified User Research function in place. Reporting into the Head of Design, you will essentially join the business as their 1st User Researcher, giving you a unique opportunity to put strong foundations in place whilst also helping them shape how User Research should be utilised within the business.

Now don't get me wrong, this will be a challenging role and somebody coming from a larger User Research team might find it quite different at first, but the name of the game with this role is opportunity (i.e. doing something that isn't being done at the moment) and progression (i.e. starting from the ground up).

Fundamentally, this role would suit somebody with a genuine passion for customer experience and breaking the mould. If this sounds like you, then demonstrating some of the following key skills on your application would be a good place to start:

* User Research Experience - First and foremost, proven experience working in a User Research capacity (obviously) is essential, as is an understanding of various research methods including quantitative, qualitative, generative and evaluative research.
* UX Design - Whilst you don't need to be a UX Designer, experience working in a UX Design team and knowledge of core UX Design principles would be beneficial.
* Stakeholder Management - Experience presenting research findings to stakeholders (both technical and non-technical) is really important, as is experience getting involved in strategy/roadmaps.
* Communication - Strong communication skills are crucial, as is previous experience holding usability testing workshops, interviews and surveys.
* Project Lifecycle - Finally, it is important that you have a firm understanding of the E2E product lifecycle, including UI Design, testing and delivery. Experience working in an Agile environment is also beneficial.

In return, you will benefit from a competitive base salary (£65,000 - £85,000) alongside flexible working hours, benefits and the chance to obtain equity within the business. Moreover, you will be joining an organisation going through an exciting period of change and will be given a genuine chance to influence that from the get-go.
