UX Researcher

Design jobs at Moonpig


Our Ways of Working:
We believe that we do our best work when we are together, but also appreciate that everyone works in different ways. That’s why we operate with three working models which look to define where and how our people work - Remote, Hybrid, Site/Office - based. 

Although we believe the majority of our people will choose our hybrid working model (at least 2 days in the office each week), for some of our teams that don't require as much in-person connection and collaboration, we offer fully remote working (with paid travel to the Moonpig office up to 6 times per year).  Remote roles are specified directly on our job adverts

What You’ll Be Doing
As part of a Research team of five, you will lead on all briefs outside of the Product & Design team. Your home will be Research & Analytics, reporting to the Research Manager but your place of work will be Marketing and Commercial (Cards & Gifts trading).  

Your stakeholders could be the Director of Marketing, Head of Cards, Head of Gifts, or a Brand Manager and their needs will be both tactical and strategic. Although our environment is UX, you will also need to think about market behaviours, Product Reviews and Opportunity Assessments so you’ll think of yourself as a UX market researcher.

Key Responsibilities:

    • Collaborate with UX researchers on research that impacts Product & Design

    • You are comfortable moderating (individuals/groups - colleagues/respondents) 
    • Facilitating workshops (virtual or in-person) is becoming second nature 
    • You are strong at analysing qual & quant data (excel/SQL/SPSS etc) - bringing large sets of responses / different data sets together 
    • You’re comfortable taking the lead and love to be creative with developing new ways to deliver research in engaging ways 
    • You have an understanding of / experience with working in an agile environment - regardless, speed and quality is at the forefront of what you do
