SUMMARY

Humans use Rasa to teach AI assistants how to understand language and hold conversations. We’re looking for a UX Researcher to help us design product interfaces and process workflows for the multidisciplinary teams that build these AI assistants. 

ABOUT THIS JOB

Well-designed experiences are at the core of our mission—giving makers the tools to build AI assistants that work for everyone. As a Senior UX Researcher at Rasa, you’re crucial to our customers’ and our business’s success.  

  • You’ll build empathy for our customers and their teams of developers, designers, data scientists, writers, product managers, business leaders, and more. 
  • You’ll focus primarily on learning our customers’ and users’ goals and motivations, the products they use, the processes that govern them, and the things that prevent them from having success.  
  • You’ll create and manage a program of generative and qualitative research to ensure real-world conditions inform our work. 
  • You’ll work closely with your peers in design, engineering, and product management as we explore new ideas and validate potential solutions for new or improved features and functionality. 
  • You’ll join a diverse and inclusive team of ‘Rasas’—from marketing and business development to machine learning research and customer success engineering—to help makers build AI assistants that everyone can use.
  • You’ll help bring natural language interfaces to people and cultures worldwide, creating a technical revolution that everyone can participate in and benefit from. 

ABOUT YOU

At Rasa, we think and work holistically, and we are obsessed with the overall user experience. We value experience and expertise as much as interest and passion in conversational AI. We recognize that every UX researcher has strengths in some areas and opportunities for growth in others. All are welcome to apply for this role. 

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You have experience researching user needs. You can show us examples of how you identified and carried your insights through to a successfully-shipped product or feature. 
  • You thoroughly document your work, synthesize your insights, and surface meaningful data points for your peers in product and design and other members of the development team. 
  • You’re confident when sharing your work and humble enough to take constructive feedback to improve your understanding and approach. 
  • You can effectively communicate and collaborate with teammates who aren’t designers, like engineers, machine learning researchers, and more.
  • You have experience facilitating workshops for large groups or small sessions with individual users.
  • You’re a natural advocate for user research,  and you can teach others both inside and outside of the product and design team. 

It would be nice if:

  • You have experience working on open source projects, enterprise software, or cloud native platforms. 
  • You are capable of evaluating qualitative data and sharing your analysis with the broader team. 
  • You have a nuanced understanding of big company processes and complex team dynamics and the ability to navigate them effectively. 
  • You are equally comfortable working at a white-board with the product development team or a boardroom with executives. 

 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US

  • Flexible hours and a dedicated remote budget
  • 1000 Euros personal development fund & 6 paid education days to help you grow within your role
  • 26 days paid holiday per year
  • A new Macbook, and other tech to help you to do your job
  • We have regular remote team events, as well as regular remote social events
  • 2 team offsites every year, our last one was 3 days in beautiful Brandenburg

DEI @ Rasa

With people from more than 20 nationalities and all continents working in five different countries, female & non-binary/genderqueer representation of nearly 50% in a male-heavy tech industry, and ages ranging from 21 to 60 years, our team is diverse in many aspects. But we believe there is much more we can do to make our company more diverse and inclusive and to contribute to a world that gives everyone fair opportunities.

To reach that goal, we have established a company target that 100% of roles have more than 50% of applicants from underrepresented groups. Recruiting is where diversity has to start. Of course, an inclusive company environment is necessary to attract diverse talent, and tracking and reporting our diversity metrics from the beginning will help us understand how we’re doing.

We are aware that diversity has many different dimensions but to start, we will be tracking gender and ethnicity, as it is measurable and concrete. To that end, we have started to ask all Rasa applicants to anonymously share diversity information. To remove our own bias, this data is held completely separate from the application and will be held in the highest confidence.

At Rasa, we consider our work on diversity, equity and inclusion to be an ongoing effort, and we welcome suggestions and comments. If you are happy to help us with our targets we would really appreciate you self identifying below.
