Job Description

Sr. UX Researcher

at ClickUp

Hybrid or Remote (San Diego or Salt Lake City)

ClickUp is the world’s only all-in-one productivity platform that flexes to the way people want to work. It replaces all individual workplace productivity tools with a single, unified platform including project management, document collaboration, spreadsheets, chat, goals, and more. On a mission to make the world more productive, ClickUp is headquartered in San Diego and scaling remotely and internationally. As one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in the world, ClickUp helps millions of users to be more productive and save at least one day every week.

We’re looking for a Senior User Researcher to help with organizing and executing on our qualitative research. In this role you will be the point person responsible for helping our team of product managers and designers better understand our users through user surveys, usability studies, and user interviews.

First, you will own operationalizing the research function at ClickUp so that we are constantly learning about our users with at least one study in market every single day. You should strive to be intimately familiar with the top projects PMs and Designers are working on so you can incorporate user research into our process and ensure we have a research roadmap that immediately adds value to what we are working on.

Second, you will also be responsible for bringing visibility to which studies are in progress and upcoming and establishing and enforcing research best practices across the team so that everyone knows what type of research to do when and how to get the most value out of it.

Third, you will help fill in gaps on executing the research. While it is ideal for each PM to be intimately involved in helping to define hypotheses to test and problems to explore, you will be helping to increase the velocity of the research by helping to execute on writing the studies to get them into market faster.

Fourth, you will own creating stories around the insights you gather and working with Product Ops to create product personas to help us better understand who we are designing for and how they plan on using our products day to day.

If this sounds like you, we’d love you to join us in changing the world by giving people more time back in their day.
