We're seeking a Lead User Researcher who is passionate about understanding our buyers and users and cares deeply about creating delightful products for our customers.

As a Lead User Researcher you will be responsible for identifying and leading research activities that provide actionable insights and ultimately build empathy around user needs. You will have extensive experience with both generative and evaluative research, leveraging a variety of different quantitative and qualitative methods.  

You will lead research activities across the entire Pendo ecosystem, regularly sharing insights and recommendations with stakeholders. You will partner closely with both product and design to test concepts and understand use cases, pain points, and unmet needs. Your work will inform product decisions and design iterations. Ability to work independently in a fast-moving organization is a must.

  • Experience selecting and applying a variety of research methods to explore a problem space and/or evaluate hypotheses.
  • Experience working with b2b Enterprise customers.
  • Strong communication and presentation skills.
  • Excited about building a user research team within a rapidly growing organization!

Expectations:

  • Strong advocate for the user and for research-led product development.
  • 10+ years of user research experience in a b2b organization.
  • Experience collaborating with stakeholders to design and execute complex, multi-stage research plans.
  • Broad experience with research methods. You have a robust research toolkit and know when to use which method and how to combine methods for maximum value.
  • Ability to extract actionable and durable insights for reuse across the organization.
  • Experience managing a complex workload and prioritizing in accordance with business needs.
  • Ability to identify important research objectives, plan and execute research activities.
  • Experience analyzing and synthesizing quantitative and qualitative data, communicating research insights and recommendations, and identifying areas for further exploration.
  • Desire to strengthen the chemistry, diversity, and inclusiveness of our team.
  • Motivated by working in a fast-paced, rapidly growing organization. Collaborate with stakeholders to improve processes and take ownership of initiatives that help us conduct research more effectively and efficiently to ultimately make better product and design decisions.
  • Eastern time zone a plus. Company headquarters are in Raleigh, North Carolina.
