The Role

We're searching for someone who lives for innovation and working with emerging technologies and undefined markets and customers. As this role is focused on early-stage investment, the ideal candidate will demonstrate an intense curiosity and passion for identifying emerging and unarticulated customer and market needs as well as an ability to think holistically about the solutions implied by those needs. The candidate should support product conceptualization and development in a face pace environment and be able to make research actionable. This role requires a start-up mentality.


Since the team focuses on innovation, you will plan and conduct UX research to identify latent needs, problems and motivations of customers, evaluate concepts and prototypes and carry out pilots. You should drive the discussions about the key hypotheses to research, and define rigorous and sometimes creative ways to answer those hypotheses. The research must balance thoroughness with speed – delivering research results must support the short iterative cycles necessary for early stage innovation.

Among other activities, you will:

  • Plan and conduct research studies in a lean environment applying a wide range of user research techniques: focus groups, ethnographic interviews, diaries, co-creation, usability testing, A/B testing, analytics, etc.
  • Based on research, define workflows and roles to define the requirements for the service and its logical and organizational structure.
  • Contribute to solution conceptualization: prototyping, scenario creation and manipulation, use cases, mental models, and other techniques for grounding service ideas and exposing them to both stakeholders and users.
  • Define possible service scenarios, study and describe use cases that help the team conceptualize possible solutions
  • Continuously share the “voice of the customer” so that the integrity of research insights is maintained through iterative concept and product development cycles. Excellent public speaking and presentation skills are critical.
  • Define the goals and metrics for researching and testing several prototypes along the product lifetime.



  • Keep a close relationship with “entrepreneurs” responsible for the innovation, the rest of the UX Innovation Team as well as with the Engineering teams.


  • Periodic interaction with end customers and other stakeholders related to the innovation

  • Relationship with external UX providers such as agencies providing quality customer research consulting to complement and extend your own efforts

  • 5+ years as a researcher, working in multi-disciplinary environment and on a wide range of products and interfaces

  • Experience working with business metrics and their corresponding UX metrics to devise product strategies
