  • Advocate for the customer by gracefully stating uncomfortable truths when necessary
  • Quickly deliver findings and insights that account for the company’s mission, initiatives, and desired business goals without losing sight of customer needs
  • Help define the usability bar and advise on meeting that bar

  • Recommend and enact improvements to the team’s process, tools and communications

  • Understanding of how to leverage frameworks and model-thinking
  • Foundational knowledge of information architecture, design principles and content strategy for both web and mobile

  • Skilled presenter and persuasive communicator
  • Comfortable with the technologies for recording, analyzing, storing, and sharing research
  • 3+ years applied experience in a high-tech/product-driven company

Nice to have

  • Accessibility standards and compliance (e.g. WCAG, 508, etc.)
  • An understanding of quantitative and market research methods
  • Experience expanding products into non-US markets
  • Worked with teams in remote offices (different time zones)
  • Experience/familiarity with collaboration tools, workplace dynamics, decision-making topics

Does the above sound like it might be you? Then we’d love to hear from you. Our goal is to provide a hiring and working experience in which all people know they are equally respected and valued. So whatever it is that makes you unique—your gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, citizenship, educational background, socioeconomic status—we value it, and we’d love to see what you might add to our team.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
