We are looking for a contract User Experience (UX) Researcher to lead information gathering and analyses, from unmoderated tests to getting out in the field with our customers.

If you are curious about people, like working on a variety of projects, have a habit of poking around and taking ownership, and enjoy seeing a tangible impact from your work, this role is for you.
You will enable Remitly to better understand current and potential customers: Who are they? How can we solve problems for them? How can we improve existing product experiences? You will apply creative solutions and figure out ways to glean insights using a range of techniques: unmoderated and moderated usability tests, card sorting, co-creation, interviews, observations, journey mapping, and more. You will explore brand-new terrain, compare versions of our product, and evaluate where we are succeeding and where we can improve. You will champion the voice of the customer.

You will evangelize product research and consult and train various teams in best practices. You will move quickly, adding velocity to design sprints. Your work will help to lead Remitly strategy and direction.
In this role, you will operate with a range of freedom and flexibility. You will anticipate needs and drive strategy, as well as respond to stakeholders’ requests. You will decide what is relevant to pass on, and distill that information into actionable recommendations.
You will be part of a team of empathetic partners who collaborate and support one another. This role will offer you plenty of opportunities to learn, grow, and develop your research toolkit.
