We’re looking for an ambitious UX Researcher to join our team in London. It’s an exciting time to join the Findmypast Design Team – we’re expanding, becoming more user-centric, working with agile processes and experimentation tools in cross-functional teams.

Millions of customers trust us to give them the tools they need to build their family tree and discover their ancestors. This role is a fantastic opportunity to use your research and insight skills to drive our roadmap, make a meaningful impact on our customers and help us deliver best-in-class family history products.

We believe in:

  • The value of great design.
  • Putting the customer at the heart of everything we do.
