We are looking for someone exceptional (will settle for Great) to build and lead our in-house Research team. We wrote a really long job description but it was a bit boring. So we re-wrote it to only include the main requirements for the role and it boils down to this:
Strong and holistic understanding of user research
Experience of Management
The Research team sits as part of the Product Design team. We are a team of 34, including UX, UI, Researchers & Optimisation Analysts. We are spread across four different countries which brings a fantastic diverse culture to our team. Our offices are in London, Dublin, Porto & Cluj-Napoca (which is in Romania for those who don’t have an A-Level in Geography – but you could have just used Google Maps I guess). There’s a fantastic atmosphere in our team – we pride ourselves on it.
Our ambition is to create an industry-leading in-house Research team so if you’re up for the challenge let us know. In our totally unbiased opinion, we think this is a great opportunity to build a Research team for a leading gaming company.
Our company values:
Our company values are Low Ego, Agility, Collaboration, Agility & Relentless Will to Win. Every single one of these comes into play for this role. We live and breathe by them.
Our office environment:
We have testing facilities in both London and Dublin offices… they’ll be yours to play with. Currently trying to refurb the London one into something pretty special, and Retail are keen for us to build a virtual shop to test in too.
A typical day in the role:
There is a massive diversity to the type of projects you will be involved in. We have multiple products, many apps, websites as well as in-shop retail work. You may get your hands dirty sometimes but the challenge (and excitement) of this role isn’t so much doing the research, it is defining what the research should be, finding out how the answers from the research can then inform the business and making a real difference. We are in a very competitive industry with millions of real time transactions, so getting UX decisions right is absolutely critical to the business and research has genuine business impact that can been seen and measured in hours, rather than months
Some of what you’ll be doing:
The person we are looking for should have most of these:
