About our User Experience Researcher position:
As a product organization we pride ourselves on our ability to evolve and push out product faster than anyone in our space. We’ve always done usability testing and field research during our development process but as our team, product and process matures we feel that it’s important to establish research and testing as a more primary part of our product development cycle in order to continue to serve our users as best we can. Additionally, as we work to further define and develop the foursquare experience for shops, restaurants, and other local businesses on the platform, we’d love to add someone who shares a passion for merchants and is excited about the opportunity that foursquare can play in changing the way they interact with their customers.
We’re looking for someone who brings with a strong grasp of qualitative and quantitative research methods but also has the flexibility to adapt them to a fast-paced startup environment. You’ll be responsible for investigating a product used by over 15 million people and by hundreds of thousands of businesses. This role represents an opportunity to partner closely with the design, product, and engineering teams to help define what usability testing should be at a fast-moving startup.
This position is based at our New York City headquarters in SoHo. We offer a competitive compensation package including equity options and full bennies for all employees.
