We work with every team, including Product, Marketing, Sales, Operations, and executives, across diverse data sets.

  • Use analytical skills to create and test hypotheses, and visualization/presentation skills to communicate results to your stakeholders.

  • Own your team's experimentation and modeling.
  • Focus on automating reporting tools and dashboards so that we can spend more time on the most complex problems.
  • Work with other Analytics teammates, including Data Engineering, to level up our skills and knowledge.

User Interviews is a fully remote team (even in the before times). We are proactive about staying connected to one another despite not sharing the same physical space. Remote culture is real and we care about it—a lot. 

We’re a team of doers. You’ll be fully supported by your manager and team, but there won’t be anyone peering over your shoulder. You’ll be expected and trusted to take ownership of your work, and to communicate clearly and transparently with your distributed teammates. 

On a related note, we’re very pro-feedback. From our users, of course. But also from each other. From individual contributors right up to the CEO, this is a team that is genuinely committed to continuous improvement. 

We embrace what makes you, you!

We are committed to accessibility, equity, diversity, and inclusion. We build products for and welcome participants, researchers, and employees from a diverse set of backgrounds. These backgrounds include—but are not limited to—varied socioeconomic status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, race, ethnicity, age, neurodivergence, disability, and citizenship.

As we grow, we are aware that this work is continuous. We will not settle for how things are, but rather strive for how they could be.
