UX Research Lead (m/w/d), this is your challenge

At Taxfix, we want to forward the evolution and maturity of our product by earning greater trust from our customers. You will be joining a growing multidisciplinary human-centred design team including product and content designers who are passionate about meeting customer needs. We collaborate closely with product managers, software engineers, tax specialists and many others to solve complex challenges and craft powerful experiences that highlight our products’ unique capabilities in each of our current international markets and those we are looking to enter.

Our product designers already conduct primary qualitative research and user testing and will continue to do so, however, we are currently looking for a Research Lead to help define and drive the future of this design research. You will identify and set research strategy, define lean and deep primary and secondary qualitative methodologies as well as contribute significantly to improving our quantitative research capabilities.

You will be in charge of providing the program framework and mentorship needed to ensure consistent, high-quality, meaningful research output from our team across multiple country products. Your position will play a paramount role in growing the skill sets of a wide variety of team members, providing challenging and enjoyable paths for building their research capabilities. In addition to this, an ideal candidate will also be able to "roll up their sleeves", becoming actively involved when needed, in conducting both research and customer testing to support our teams.

You will be the primary thought leader for the overarching approach we take in developing a research program that serves stakeholders across the organization in their attempt to understand customers and build a best-in-class suite of fintech products.
