Job description

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.

We’re adding a User Researcher to our team who will help us better understand our customers and how to bring their needs to existing and new product initiatives for Webflow. This role will help us learn about our current and potential customers, and who we can serve by identifying continued and new opportunities in our product roadmap.

About the role 

    • Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
    • Full-time

As a User Researcher, you’ll … 

  • Help define and shape the research function at Webflow as we make it a core pillar of the product design team
  • Plan and execute inclusive, strategic, and valuable user research: design research studies and tests, recruit participants, facilitate interviews, and analyze results
  • Synthesize findings and use compelling narratives to communicate digestible and actionable insights and recommendations to a variety of partners in ways that build trust, informs, and drives consensus around key decisions
  • Influence and support the formation of technical product roadmaps and tactical solution designs that are highly usable and useful to a diverse and global audience
  • Evolve and elevate Engineering, Product, and Design’s (EPD) user research capabilities by equipping non-researchers with toolkits, training, and processes to set them up for success in their own research

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as a User Researcher if you have:

  • 3+ years conducting user research, and/or design research in industry or academia
  • Ability to lead research and collaborate with other teams to discover insights, identify unmet needs, craft better products, and impact company strategy
  • Passion for understanding what drives user behavior
  • Experience with lean research integrated with product teams in an agile process
  • Exceptional ability at empathically listening, perceiving users’ needs, and delivering an unbiased view of users
  • Ability to understand large amounts of research data, generate user insights, and turn those insights into action items for product teams
  • Experience in qualitative research methods—such as user interviews, diary studies, participatory design, and usability studies
  • Experience with inclusive participant recruitment processes
  • Knowledge of quantitative research methodologies—such as surveys and card sorting
  • Knowledge of accessibility, principles of effective design, and the Jobs to be Done framework
  • Effective written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to facilitate sessions with cross-functional partners and stakeholders to drive consensus and buy-in
  • BA/BS in Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors, Psychology, Anthropology, Design or related field (or MA/MS and an internship in industry, in lieu of 3 years of experience)

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, we encourage you to still apply. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in consideration.
