The role: Senior UX Researcher

We are looking for a Senior UX Researcher to join our GSTP team in Leeds!

Are you our next star player?

Come and join a new team to build exciting new products featuring rock-solid stability, high velocity code-shipping and ground-breaking innovation. We’re lean, we’re agile, and DevOps is at the centre of everything we do! And you’re in good company: you’ll be standing on the shoulders of the giants who crafted the most popular apps and products of their kind.

Why we need you

You’ll work on the most critical, strategic projects at the heart of the world’s largest public online gaming business, with funding and opportunities to match our huge ambition.

It’s your chance to work on greenfield developments where you’ll build and run new products that will ultimately be used by millions around the world, building on your career so far and learning new tech skills to tackle problems that only exist at this scale.

Who we’re looking for

For you, research doesn’t just mean sitting behind a desk churning numbers all day, it means analysing data to spot product facing opportunities to improve our designs and journeys through the site. It also means you’ll love facilitating user research to really understand what drives our customers. You’ll then be chomping at the bit to share the results which you’ll analyse and present to partners to influence our product managers and designers to iterate our designs.

You’re someone who can spot opportunity in the detail and who isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo based on rational and objective data points and qualitative research. We’ll expect you to look inside and outside the market place for market opportunities in key areas like navigation, feature set and more.

Your experience:

  • Expertise in user research, facilitating partner workshops, information architecture, rapid prototyping and testing, allowing you to cover a broad remit across a number of projects
  • Experience in planning, facilitating and analysing field research, e.g. diary studies, contextual interviews
  • Expertise in analysing quantitative data to spot opportunities, analyse results and publish those results in a compelling way with partners.
  • Experience in online user research tools and facilitating in-house ‘lab’ and guerrilla style user research that help validate concepts and designs
  • Experience in A/B and Multivariate Testing using online tools to drive optimisation, or how you’d use these tools to test the impact of features and design changes.
  • Experience in web analytics for driving conversion / acquisition / retention
  • Strong mobile/responsive design experience

Your skills and behaviours:

You’re a good communicator and can build successful relationships with fellow researchers, designers and UX architects, product managers, marketing executives, developers, business analysts and solutions architects.

You’re a specialist in analysing data (qualitative and quantitative) and know how to tell a story with the data to influence your partners. You keep up to date with the latest industry trends and share this with internal communities.

You have worked in a dynamic, collaborative, transparent, non-hierarchal culture. You thrive in a fast-paced, results driven organisation. You’re able to contribute to UX culture and thinking as the team grows. You have an obsession for the finer detail, constantly striving for perfection

What’s in it for you?

Our experience-based salaries are competitive. Plus, there’s a discretionary annual performance bonus. And we provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to Leeds.

Your package will include:

  • health and dental insurance for you, your partner and your children (if you all live at the same address)
  • the option to join our company pension scheme
  • £1,000 as a congratulations if you have a baby whilst you work for us
  • discounted gym membership
  • in-house training and development to develop your skills, progressing your career
  • free fresh fruit, snacks and drinks in the office
  • social events; including our sensational summer and Christmas parties.

What happens next?

If you’re what we’re looking for, next up will be a phone interview. And if that goes well, we’ll meet you for a face-to-face interview.
