About the team
UX Research at Miro is a distributed team working with cross-functional teams in various hubs. As the third researcher in the company, you will enjoy the ownership, autonomy, and impact of a fast-paced environment like Miro. The value of UX Research is already proved and broadly understood by the Product Development partners, and they are keen to collaborate with you to improve their decision-making and product quality.
About the role
Miro builds products for users and with them, empowering teams to collaborate seamlessly across the globe. As a Sr. UX Researcher at the Core Product team, you'll be in charge of shaping the heart of the product, whiteboarding experience, and the UI itself.
You'll be collaborating cross-functionally to tackle ambiguous product and design challenges by formulating the right research questions and supporting conceptual decision-making, as well as rapid validation of risky assumptions by conducting multi-method research studies.
We expect you to be a thinking partner for the team, flexible and mature enough to iteratively decrease uncertainty and tackle complex problems that may not have immediately apparent solutions.
At Miro, seniority means the ability to execute complex end-to-end research programs autonomously, effectively, and with a high bar of quality. It means leveraging concepts from human-computer interaction to evaluate and improve the user experience. And, beyond craft and its execution, it's also about managing projects and stakeholders to drive the research process with transparency and predictability.
The beauty of the Sr. UX Researcher role at Miro is about the exposure to 15M+ users from a variety of industries, with a diverse set of backgrounds, profiles, and use cases. You'll be able to wear multiple hats and learn each time something new and exciting, so the curious mind never gets bored here.
