Senior UX Researcher at Lattice
San Francisco, CA, US

About the Role 

You're a UX Researcher and you're sure of your process. You've been at it for 5+ years and enjoy sharing your knowledge with your fellow teammates. You believe that research shouldn't be left to one team, but should be a company-wide practice. You care about why you're building something, not just what. You ground your research priorities in things that will drive customer and business value. Everything is your problem. You consider the technical, product, and business needs of the company with each decision. You're based in San Francisco or are willing to relocate, and eligible to work in the United States.

  • You'll independently plan and lead research end-to-end, including generative and evaluative research, across various levels (strategic, foundational, tactical/iterative). You'll choose methods and processes that lead to sound decision-making in fast-paced environment, including blending & interpreting information across a mix of available data sources, and helping to collect more data where needed
  • You'll clearly communicate, promote, and spread research results ****to the right people at the right time and translate those insights into actionable recommendations that inform execution
