Help us to combine the power of Data, Search and browsers to redesign the internet for the user.

Technical UX Researcher

Full time / Munich Office

Job Summary

You will complement our growing User Experience (UX) team by analyzing, prototyping, and testing small, large and even crazy ideas that improve interaction with search-related systems. You will be responsible for developing and analyzing interaction concepts, using any methods you prefer, to convince us to include them into our products. As such, this is a job that combines technical prototyping skills, data analysis, creativity, user empathy, communication skills, and critical analysis. Given this central role within the company, you will have a key impact on the big decisions regarding how our products will feel to the user. Your role is not to implement tiny, incremental improvements – bring big ideas, as we are trying to do no less than reinvent the UX of the Internet.

Key Qualifications

  • Analyze our current products and those of our competitors to develop hypotheses on how to improve interaction with our products
  • Design and build prototypes to solve current usability issues and to showcase novel interaction concepts
  • Design, setup, and perform studies to test prototypes developed by you and others on the team
  • Work with our designers and the engineering team to implement the resulting concepts
  • Push everyone in the company to rethink technical boundaries and limitations – don’t accept excuses like: “great idea but we can’t do that for technical reasons.”
  • Actively encourage a culture of experimentation and prototyping within the organization

Skills & Experience

  • Masters or PhD in Human-Computer Interaction, Media Informatics, User Experience, or similar field with a strong technical focus. Equivalent experience accepted
  • 2+ years of experience prototyping and evaluating advanced user interfaces, in a research or explorative commercial setting
  • Strong background in user experience research with software applications. Ability to quickly design, implement, and perform data-driven tests and prototypes
  • Technical competency to express your ideas in whatever platform/language you wish. Python and HTML/Javascript are common here but we encourage you to use whatever you are most efficient with. Knowledge of iOS or Android development would also be very helpful
  • Ability to voice and defend your opinion within the engineering team. You can stand-up and fight for great UX and help push technical boundaries
  • Hands-on, preferably with startup experience, very self-driven: a great candidate will create a quick and dirty prototype before lunch from an idea thought up over breakfast
  • Data driven and good analytical skills (e.g., ability to perform basic analysis of large data sets)

Company

Our office culture is centered around curiosity, playing with new ideas, and pushing boundaries. It is a place to experiment – so we are most interested in candidates who are passionate about learning. Candidates must also be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with challenging and, at times, demanding team. There are many benefits in joining the team: We offer a fixed position, competitive salary, and training opportunities. In addition, we offer relocation packages and work sponsorship for worldwide candidates to join our growing team in Munich! We are backed by one of the largest European Internet players – so despite the start-up-atmosphere, we do offer stability. But most important of all: Your contribution will matter every day!
