Company Description

It all started with an idea at Block in 2013. Initially built to take the pain out of peer-to-peer payments, Cash App has gone from a simple product with a single purpose to a dynamic ecosystem, developing unique financial products, including Afterpay, to provide a better way to send, spend, invest, borrow and save to our 47 million monthly active customers. We want to redefine the world’s relationship with money to make it more relatable, instantly available, and universally accessible. This is our mission, and it’s why working at Cash App means so much more than a job.

Today, Cash App has thousands of employees working globally across office and remote locations, with a culture geared toward innovation, collaboration and impact. We’ve been a distributed team since day one, and many of our roles can be done remotely from the countries where Cash App operates. No matter the location, we tailor our experience to ensure our employees are creative, productive, and happy.

We are looking for a senior-level qualitative researcher to drive generative and evaluative research to accelerate understanding of customers and prospective customers, with insights guiding partner teams to build user-centered shopping experiences that unlock the full potential of Block’s connected ecosystem.

  • Collect and analyze user behavior through mixed methods research including in-depth interviews, ethnographic research, contextual inquiry, card sorting, surveys, usability studies, and other relevant research methodologies
  • Evaluate product design (in-market and new concepts) in order to better serve the Cash App customer through a strong focus on user experience, as well as identifying growth opportunities
  • Collaborate deeply with your Customer Insights teammates, plus teammates in Design, Product Management, Growth, Marketing and Engineering

 

Qualifications

  • You are a qualitative researcher
  • 8+ years of industry experience
  • You are a self-starter with the ability to plan, conduct and report on highly impactful qualitative research throughout the product development process
