WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
At Braze, you have the opportunity to make an impact at an enormous scale. We are searching for someone who can help to identify and understand the questions that we need answers to in order to move product strategy and execution forward.
During your interview experiences at Braze we expect to hear stories of how your research influenced product roadmaps and informed design decisions. Please use your answers to the questions below to give us a glimpse into these experiences.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
This role is a part of a growing research team within a growing product organization.
