About the role

Petuum is bringing machine learning to the enterprise, helping them to design, build, experiment, and operate machine learning applications without hiring an army of specialized data scientists and engineers. User research and insights are critical to building a dramatically simpler user experience. As our first full-time researcher, you'll have lots of opportunity to build a great culture around design and influence our products in big, meaningful ways.

Our immediate needs are qualitative research, but our domain is technical in nature. A blend of qualitative and quantitative skills would be ideal, but you will have plenty of in-house technical partners.


  • Propose direction and inform product decisions with real information on user behavior and needs
  • Work hand-in-hand with designers to ensure user needs are met
  • Advocate good design practices and user empathy across the organization
  • Articulate research findings clearly to engage with engineering, product, and sales teams
  • Conduct foundational research in conjunction with marketing team
  • Lead qualitative efforts to evaluate designs


  • 5+ years in UX research
  • Proficiency in a variety of qualitative methodologies and related tools and technologies
  • Experience with technical audiences and domains is a plus
