  • Work with the wider UX Research team and your cross-functional team to plan and undertake both generative and evaluative research (qualitative and quantitative).
  • Identifying behaviours and needs that inform the continuous development of key user journeys.
  • Collaborate with your team across research design, defining problem statements, through ideation, prototyping, testing and constructing experiences informing the product development process.
  • Create user journeys, flows, personas, empathy maps and any other artefacts required to enrich the team’s understanding of the real user problem they are trying to solve.
  • Partner with team members outside the research team to run unmoderated and moderated user testing (both in-person and remotely).
