Our team is endlessly curious about people, and their behavior, and we’re looking to support that curiosity with a like-minded UX Researcher. We’re hoping you have an analytical mind that gives you the ability to organize our research and uncover patterns in our users’ behavior along the way.
We are always searching for meaning in our studies, interviews, and data and are looking for someone to help us scale these efforts in a way that can be utilized by our entire organization. Additionally, we are in the process of growing our product insights practice, so you will have the opportunity to help define what user research looks like at CloudBees.

At CloudBees, we truly believe that the more diverse we are, the better we serve our customers. A global community like Jenkins demands a global focus from CloudBees. Organizations with greater diversity—gender, racial, ethnic, and global—are stronger partners to their customers. Whether by creating more innovative products, or better understanding our worldwide customers, or establishing a stronger cross-section of cultural leadership skills, diversity strengthens all aspects of the CloudBees organization.
In the technology industry, diversity creates a competitive advantage. CloudBees customers demand technologies from us that solve their software development, and therefore their business problems, so that they can better serve their own customers. CloudBees attributes much of its success to its worldwide work force and commitment to global diversity, which opens our proprietary software to innovative ideas from anywhere. Along the way, we have witnessed firsthand how employees, partners, and customers with diverse perspectives and experiences contribute to creative problem solving and better solutions for our customers and their businesses.
