ABOUT THE TEAM
UX Research works with a multi-disciplinary team of Designers, Product Managers, Product Analysts, Developers, Marketers, and leadership who care deeply about the people who use our products. We play an integral part in gathering insights about product user needs, attitudes, emotions, and behaviors to inspire and inform design. Together, we are building an innovative, new home service that spans the digital and physical worlds—from the details on a screen, to in-person, human-to-human interactions, and everything in between.

What you’ll do:
Angi UX Researchers comfortably rely on their experience with multiple methods of UX research to recommend the best method for a research question and then own that research project from start to finish. Curiosity and empathy for the user will drive creation of thoughtful task plans, discussion guides, and group exercises that answer primary business questions as well as uncover additional angles that may not be immediately obvious to stakeholders. You’ll uncover why customers make the choices they do and provide guidance on how to improve their experiences across the entire Angi platform.
