Clio is more than just a tech company–we are a global leader that is transforming the legal experience for all by bettering the lives of legal professionals while increasing access to justice.

We are currently seeking a Senior Design Researcher to join our Product Design team. This role is available to candidates across Canada, excluding Quebec.

What your team does:

We believe solid, rigorous research is pivotal to crafting a shared understanding that helps inspire, design, and build the products that fuel Clio’s mission of transforming the legal experience. We’re looking for a deeply curious senior design researcher who believes that research is a team effort and that empathy, passion, and storytelling are foundational to creating great experiences. 

What you’ll work on:

  • You’re eager to evangelize UX research across the r&d department through close collaboration with feature teams. 
  • You’ll collaborate closely with Clio’s customer insights team and coordinate research initiatives with them. 
  • You’ll conduct qualitative research and uncover insights on our customers' needs and pain points. You can partner with designers and product managers to build a more efficient and human experience across our products. 
  • You are passionate about generative research. You know that we may be answering the wrong questions and are not afraid to dig a little further to uncover the right questions. 
  • You will build positive relationships with our product teams and do not shy away from sharing some uncomfortable truths about what we’re doing. 
  • You will synthesize research findings, in an engaging and actionable way. You have great storytelling capabilities and can help the organization better understand what drives and motivates Clio’s customers. You are adept at sharing the right level of insight depending on the stakeholder you are talking to.
  • You’ll help define efficient research processes and operational initiatives.
  • Like us, you are totally behind the idea that everyone should participate in research and you take that to heart. 

What you may have:

  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Strong experience in qualitative research, with an emphasis on shipping useful and usable products.
  • Examples of work that clearly demonstrate your ability to tackle complex problems on behalf of users and in collaboration with your peers in the product organization.
  • Strong skills applying multiple research methodologies, including data collection, analysis and synthesis.

Serious bonus points if you have:

  • Have a high level of comfort working within a self-directed culture and navigating ambiguity.
  • Have experience working with high level stakeholders and the ability to communicate key research insights at various fidelities.
