About Your Job at Baymard
In this position, you will join Baymard’s team of usability researchers and primarily work with analyzing our raw annotated usability test data and writing the insights from this into usability guidelines. The guidelines go directly into our subscription platform Baymard Premium.
Our Baymard Premium customers are eagerly waiting for your UX research insights, be it the UI designer at Nike or the e-commerce director at Lenovo, as they use it as direct input for their UX and UI design decisions.
In this role, you’ll need to enjoy writing, since writing and articulating usability test findings will be at least 80% of what you’ll be doing all year round.
Besides writing, the job involves analyzing web user behavior, identifying themes and issues across multiple sites, and coming up with proposals for design patterns that can alleviate the identified problems. The test data primarily come from qualitative moderated think-aloud usability tests (experience with usability testing is a plus, but not a requirement).
In this job, you’ll be directly shaping the future of e-commerce, become a published usability research author within your first couple of months on the job, and should expect to join the ranks of the absolute top experts within e-commerce usability within a few years (if you aren’t already).
Along with analyzing and writing duties, we anticipate you will also grow into the role of Research Editor. In this position you’ll help colleagues craft their own writing and quality assure writing across the team for content and consistency. Previous experience editing (developmental editing, copyediting, or both) is therefore an advantage.
We want to work with the smartest and most dedicated people around the world, and the position is therefore open to full-time remote work. 90% of Baymard’s current team is already working remotely, so the entire company is structured around remote work. In other words, you are welcome to work with us from any location you prefer — as long as there’s a stable internet connection. If you want to, you’re of course also welcome to work in our Copenhagen-based office.
