- Generate insights that fuel new product ideas and improve our current offerings
- Run and conduct user testing in our in-house testing lab
- Recruit participants, prepare discussion guides, and moderate research sessions
- Evangelise user insights to the team and the wider organisation, so that they share a deep understanding of our users
- Partner with our product team made up of engineers, designers, and product managers to define actionable outcomes
- Own our suite of qualitative and quantitative research tools

- You are experienced in UX Research/ User Experience for a B2B, B2C, or Mobile product
- Previous experience leading and mentoring junior researchers
- Proven success influencing product and design decisions based on research insights
- Display a strong comprehension of the strengths and limitations of the different research methods, inclusive of when and how to apply each in product/market/consumer analysis
- Excellent communication skills both written and verbal – a storyteller and who can form relationships with a diverse set of business partners
- Experience working on multiple projects at a time
- Display a real passion for communicating product recommendations driven by the users’ needs and behaviours
We believe diversity of experience (whether that be personal or professional), contributes to a broader perspective and will lead to a better company with highly innovative products and solutions. We’re working hard to increase the diversity of our team and be more inclusive, so if you’re not sure you fit the criteria, why not get in touch? We value confidence whilst being humble, so are keen to meet those with talent who are the right fit.
We’re a driven, energetic startup with a team of 200+ based in London, Munich and Madrid. We are backed by some of Europe’s leading VCs and have raised over £48m in funding since we launched, so we’re growing fast. We’ve just been ranked 6th in the Financial Times’ Top 1000 Fastest Growing Companies in Europe. We’re relentlessly driven and constantly asking ourselves how we can make carwow better. If you’re proactive, motivated, and want to help us change the future of car buying, get in touch. It’s the chance to be at the start of something huge.
