  • Lead research projects from beginning to end (including recruiting, moderation and report writing both independently and with vendor partners) Develop alignment with cross-functional partners (including design, engineering, and product management) across the Growth Product org

What we're looking for: 

  • 3+ years experience designing and conducting end-to-end product research, from recruitment through final deliverable
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Scrappy can-do attitude with a bias for action and a focus on impact
  • Experience in consumer product, growth, or international research, a plus
  • Familiarity with experiments and quantitative data, a plus
