User Researcher

Job description

Who we are

At Appeagle, we are building software to help online sellers make informed decisions by delivering actionable data and insights. We’re a team of problem solvers and overachievers who seek out others who are also passionate and relentless at their respective crafts. We’re growing rapidly and focused on creating a tight-knit group of people that enjoy each other’s company. We work hard not because we’re told to, but because we genuinely love what we do. We believe wholeheartedly in a work/life balance and taking care of our most important asset - our people.


Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for a User Researcher to join our team and help influence our user experience.

User Researchers at Appeagle collaborate with Product Managers, Designers, Analysts, and Engineers. It’s their job to own and drive research projects from start to finish.


We are looking for a researcher who gets excited about using strategic research to identify what problems our customers have, and design research to ensure our products are designed in a way that’s intuitive and easy to use. Researchers at Appeagle are involved at every stage in the product design process from understanding the problems and unmet needs our customers have, through to evaluation of new concepts and prototypes with customers, right through to the evaluation of products post-launch.


Research plays a key role in our product design process, which is something we’re proud of as a customer driven company. We’re also growing very fast, which creates exciting opportunities to design new products from scratch and experiment with new research techniques.

  • The ability to communicate your research findings in creative and impactful ways. You understand that your insights alone mean little if they are not communicated successfully
