We are searching for a person with a solid knowledge of research processes and methodologies, and proven experience in their application across different stages of the design process.

As a member of the Experience Design team, you will work in a collaborative environment, using a mix of design thinking and agile methodologies. You’ll partner with designers, copywriters, developers, business analyst and product owners to improve existing products and bring new ideas to life.

It is a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to discover and change the habits of thousands of people every day.

Key Responsibilities

  • You will be accountable for conducting user research to develop a deep understanding of our users, their behaviours, and their needs.

  • You will be a partner with UX Designers and the Product team to ensure the delivery of the most engaging experiences to our users.
  • You will plan and moderate workshops and collaboration sessions to unveil user requirements, create alignment around product vision, and generate unpredictable solutions.
  • You will translate your research findings in testing hypotheses. You will manage the prioritisation, delivery and analysis of AB tests to drive the improvement of our products.
  • You’ll be comfortable taking a data-led approach to design. You will be a passionate advocate for the user, dedicated to the research and excited about working in an agile, collaborative environment.



  • 3+ years of experience in applied product research
  • You have a broad experience in different research methodologies, ideally in building digital products, and know when to apply the appropriate methods

  • You created, published and analysed a good amount of ab tests using vendor or in-house tools (we are pro users of Optimizely)
  • You have a collaborative mindset: you thrive in cross-functional environments and have worked with leadership, product, engineering and marketing
  • You have a positive attitude: you’re a team player and you’re resilient in the face of challenges
  • You will never agree about delivering a new experience if it doesn’t look excellent and user centered
  • You have strong communication skills, both written and verbal, mostly when it comes to communicating insights and getting consensus
