    Europe Only
    1 week ago

    Kinsta is a modern cloud hosting company focused on WordPress hosting. We run our services on cutting-edge technology and we are proud of the level of support we offer to our customers. Our talented and motivated team is scattered across the globe with team members hailing from every continent but Antarctica! We're constantly on the lookout for great talent to join our awesome team. If you’d like to become part of the Kinsta family, hit apply!

    We are looking for a motivated and professional UX Researcher to help us grow and enhance the best hosting service and site management dashboard on the market. This is an opportunity to work in a dynamically growing international company where what you do has a direct and immediate impact.

    This role is an especially unique opportunity because we are looking for our first hire with this title. Our Design team has taken care of all the research duties for discovery and validation so far but to keep a steady pace in our delivery with a rapidly growing team we want someone to take the helm in this area. This also means we are looking for someone who can not only carry out the research tasks but also work with us in optimizing the inclusion of research in our workflows, extend our tools and methods for research, and potentially further grow the research competence at Kinsta.

    The Design team consists of the Product Design and the Marketing Design teams at Kinsta, but the UX Researcher will report directly to the Head of Design. On the one hand, because both areas would benefit from what a research professional can bring to the table, and also because of the above reason of finding the place of research within our organization.

    • Guide stakeholders in turning problems into the right questions to ask in research
    • Match methods and tools to research questions
    • Conduct qualitative research, including methods of interviewing, unmoderated observation, contextual inquiry, group discussions
    • Conduct quantitative research, including methods of surveys and analysis of raw usage data
    • Research and analyze competitors, find best practices and new sources of inspiration
    • Facilitate workshops to process research materials, draw insights, and articulate conclusions in a collaborative way
    • Handle ResearchOps activities, including recruiting and managing research participants, organizing testing activities
    • Create research reports including observations, insights, conclusions, and recommendations
    • Present work done with clear communication, argue in defense of the users, making sure that the users' voice is heard by stakeholders

    Requirements

    • 3 years of experience working as a Researcher, including at least 1 year at a digital product company, which you can showcase with a portfolio and a thorough case study
    • Hands-on experience with a varied toolset in both qualitative and quantitative research
    • Methodical approach to research and analysis
    • Curiosity to look for answers, and creativity in finding the right research means to the questions
    • Keen eye in recognizing patterns both in data and behavior to draw excellent conclusions from research findings
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English, including collaborating with designers and developers, coordinating with stakeholders, and articulating findings
    • Positive attitude, proactive, doer mentality, hungry to learn, and eager to build something new
    • You are authorized to work and reside in any EU/EEA country, UK, USA, or Canada

    Benefits

    • This is a fully remote role, meaning you can work from anywhere with reliable broadband internet access
    • Relaxed working environment with reasonable working schedule, no overtime, and essentially unlimited paid time off
    • Remote expense and personal career development budget
    • An amazing team with a collaborative and iterative workflow, so you never work in a vacuum
    • This position offers a great deal of flexibility, responsibility, and opportunity for growth
    • We will strive to provide you with the support to deliver your best and become a better professional

    Senior UX Designer

    Thorn
    USA Only
    2 weeks ago

    Thorn is a non-profit focused on building technology to defend children from sexual abuse. Working at Thorn allows you to apply your skills, expertise, and passions to directly impact the lives of vulnerable and abused children. Our staff solves dynamic, quickly evolving problems with our network of partners from tech companies, NGOs, and law enforcement agencies. If you can bring clarity to complexity and lightness to heavy issues, you could be an excellent fit for our team. 

    Our CEO took the stage at TED and shared our audacious goal of eliminating child sexual abuse material from the internet.

    An essential part of our work at Thorn is victim identification. Together with our engineering and data science teams you'll be instrumental in determining priorities and shaping the next generation of the products that deliver critical insights to the work of those who are daily fighting to protect children from sexual abuse.

    About the Role:

    Thorn is looking for a Senior UX Designer to join our remote cross-functional team. Our ideal candidate has experience in the full life cycle of user experience and product design—from concept to prototyping to execution, and a healthy dose of curiosity. Part researcher, part strategist, and part designer, in this role, you might be sketching wireframes for a new feature set one day, hosting a co-design workshop the next, and wrapping up the week building scrappy digital prototypes to test. You will have the opportunity to partner with law enforcement across the U.S. and around the world —identifying design opportunities, imagining new possibilities, and bringing those ideas to life through engaging digital experiences.

    • Be solution-focused and medium-agnostic, willing to step out of your core skill set or discipline to find the correct solution to a challenge. Create digital solutions that address a range of challenges, translating user needs and real-world constraints into elegant, effective digital experiences.
    • Lead multidisciplinary teams through the design process - from discovery, research, and prototyping through execution and implementation - collaborating closely with engineering and product to find the best solutions together.
    • Create prototypes of different levels of fidelity to help determine design direction for a project.
    • Construct information architecture, interaction models, customer flows, schematics, and visual design that bring new ideas to life.
    • Work collaboratively with other UX Designers across Thorn to share research, concepts, and ideas in order to promote consistency and team growth. 
    • Continuously measure how designs are performing and iterate to improve those experiences.  

    What We’re Looking For:

    • You have a commitment to putting the children we serve at the center of everything you do.
    • You can work with shifting requirements in a fast-paced and fluid environment and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, including customers, engineers, product managers, and other UX designers.
    • Comfortable naming experience trade-offs, and translating user needs, business goals and technical limitations into effective MVP requirements. 
    • Fluency in the human-centered design process from qualitative research and synthesis to ideation, prototyping, and implementation.
    • Ability to convey concepts through wireframes, flows, storyboards, and mockups.
    • A diverse portfolio showing a passion for discovery, interaction, and design with articulate storytelling.  
    • Confident in presenting work and articulating user experience issues and concerns to team members and stakeholders.
    • Ability and interest to learn new design techniques and patterns quickly.
    • You have empathy and can be a strong advocate for our users while balancing the vision and constraints of technical or product realities.
    • Cultural sensitivity, creativity, and resourcefulness. 
    • Self-motivated, able to work independently in a remote environment.
    • You communicate clearly, efficiently, and thoughtfully. We’re a highly-distributed team, so written communication is crucial. 
    • Bonus: Previous experience working within a startup environment 

    Technologies We Use:

    • Axure RP
    • Sketch and/or Figma
    • StoriesOnBoard
    • AirTable

    At Thorn, we understand the value of developing a team with different perspectives, educational backgrounds, and life experiences. We prioritize diversity within our team and encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply. Your skills are needed here.
