Airtime is building the next generation of live, social platforms. We’re looking for an exceptional researcher to help us develop insights into the digital content and social space, to help create the best product for our users. This is a high-impact, cross-functional role with the ability to influence the direction of the organization. We’re looking for someone that is excited about Human-Computer Interaction: the behaviors and paradigms that arise from connecting in live interaction with anyone at any time.

They work closely with team members and stakeholders to support the Design, Marketing, Product and Strategy teams by conducting high-quality research that puts the user at the heart of the decision-making process. As a small, nimble team we offer an opportunity to make a real impact - every role matters and everyone’s voice is heard.

You should be comfortable in collaborating across multiple types of projects;  market research, interviews with users; tactical studies to evolve the in-app experience.  From paradigm shifts to micro-interactions, we’re looking for someone that can empathize deeply with our users and use that empathy to help inform valuable insights that raise the bar in live social experiences.
