Build the products that power global trade. 

The opportunity:

Flexport’s mission is to make global trade easy for everyone. To achieve this goal, the Flexport User Experience (UX) team creates end-to-end experiences for our clients, partners, and operations teams. We are seeking a User Researcher to build a deep understanding of users' problems and turn user research into actionable insights that drive decision making. This individual enjoys solving challenging problems and empowering the team to move forward by developing metrics, measuring results, and integrating new methodologies into existing systems.  User Researchers are key stakeholders in the product development lifecycle, from collaborating with cross-functional partners and formulating the product vision to ensuring high-quality implementation. To be successful, User Researchers must be relentlessly curious, methodical, communicate clearly, and consistently balance user and business needs. Join us as we lay the foundation of our vision for global trade.

As a researcher on the Marketplace team, you will drive the end-to-end research initiatives across many functions and multiple tools. You’ll inform product directions and decisions that enable us to create the best processes and strategies for procurement, pricing, sales, and financial purposes globally.

You will:

  • Establish domain knowledge and empathy for end users in a specific product area
  • Collaborate with cross-functional team to identify research opportunities and manage research priorities
  • Plan the research strategy, using appropriate methodologies to achieve product goals
  • Conduct a variety of user research activities, including surveys, field research, analogous research, co-creation, diary studies, usability testing (remote and in-person), etc.
  • Learn to incorporate quantitative data and qualitative research findings into actionable insights
  • Present research insights in a memorable and compelling narrative
  • Keep the team focused on the users throughout the product development lifecycle
  • Contribute to onboarding new researchers

You should have:

  • 2+ years of professional user research experience
  • End-to-end experience with most aspects of research (study design, recruiting, moderation, analysis, storytelling)
  • Solid communication, presentation, social, and analytical skills; the ability to communicate complex concepts clearly and persuasively across different audiences and varying levels of the organization
  • Experience applying research insights to creative design solutions
  • Experience working in highly collaborative design teams, or other multidisciplinary teams
  • A degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Statistics, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology or related field, or equivalent practical experience
