What's the opportunity? 🤔
We are looking for Product Researchers for our Dublin office.
Product Researchers collaborate with the wider Research team, Product Managers, Designers, Analysts and Engineers to conduct user research with intercom customers. It’s the Product Researcher's job to drive and conduct research projects from start to finish.
Intercom uses formative research to identify what problems our customers have and design research to ensure products are intuitive and easy to use. Researchers are involved at every stage of the product development process; from understanding problems, the evaluation of concepts and right through to the monitoring of products post-launch.
Research plays a key part in the product development process by helping the team to understand the opportunities, contexts, audience and experiences. Working at pace is key and we experiment with processes, methodologies and ways of working to provide product teams with critical insights as quickly as possible.
