What You’ll Do:
Here’s what you can expect on a typical day in the life of a Lead UX Researcher at ADP.
- Product voice and ownership mindset. You’re the lead voice asking “why” to understand what questions you need to answer and how data might help drive those decisions. You’ll also create proposals and timelines to make these ideas a reality.
- Strategy and vision. We’re always looking for new methods and approaches to reliable scientific data. You have a desire and aptitude for spotting User Experience research trends and turning them into enterprise recommendations.
- You’ll work each day with people from across the product development team in a fast-paced environment to understand issues and communicate user priorities.
- Recruit & Collect. Having experience working in scrums and as part of Agile work teams, you’ll recruit and manage test participants for your research and collect quantitative and qualitative data to meet product goals and support data-driven design.
- Variety of work. There is no typical day. You could be working on anything from data collection to one-on-one conversations with clients or coding a survey. You know how to apply different methods based on the situation.
- You have 8-12 years of experience in relevant skills gained and developed in the same or similar role.
- You’ll have a Bachelor’s degree OR equivalent.
TO SUCCEED IN THIS ROLE:
- Your prior experience in user experience research with software, web, and/or mobile applications, along with experience with research and prototyping tools like UserZoom, Qualtrics, Invision, etc, will give you the comfort in this role to be successful.
- An advanced degree in HF/HCI or a related discipline isn’t required but could set you apart.
YOU’LL LOVE WORKING HERE BECAUSE YOU CAN:
- Have courageous team collaboration. Courage comes from how associates are willing to have difficult conversations, speak up, be an owner, and challenge one another’s ideas to find the best solution.
- Deliver at epic scale. We deliver real user outcomes using strong judgment and good instincts. We’re obsessed with the art of achieving simplicity with a focus on client happiness and productivity.
- Be surrounded by curious learners. We align ourselves with other smart people in an environment where we grow and elevate one another to the next level. We encourage our associates to listen, stay agile, and learn from mistakes.
- Act like an owner & doer. Mission-driven and committed to leading change, you will be encouraged to take on any challenge and solve complex problems. No tasks are beneath or too great for us. We are hands-on and willing to master our craft.
- Be a storyteller. Connect the dots across complex tasks and scenarios, within design challenges, and via thoughtful leadership using personas, user journeys, research insights, recommendations, and data.
- Give back to others. Always do the right thing for our clients and our community and humbly give back to the community where we live and work. Support our associates in times of need through ADP’s Philanthropic Foundation.
- Join a company committed to equality and equity. Our goal is to impact lasting change through our actions.
