We are seeking a strong User Researcher to join our multi-disciplinary team of over 30 user researchers and planners working on a breadth of experiences across Office. Working on Office means influencing the experiences of 100s of millions of people every day. Our team takes this influence seriously, and we are actively innovating our research practices to ensure all people using Microsoft products have a represented voice in what we build. Our success in doing so is dependent on building teams that include people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other’s assumptions with fresh perspective. Your experiences and your demonstrated skill sets are far more important than your level. If you are interested, feel free to apply regardless of your years of experience.
The Office “better together” effort is focused on creating a seamless experience for users working across the M365 ecosystem. In this Competitive Insights role, you will be responsible for bringing the user experience, market, and competitive insights to the teams responsible for re-imagining core productivity and collaboration in M365. You will create deep understanding of both top and bottom of the funnel drivers of competitive usage. You’ll leverage your quantitative skills to drive improvements in metrics and dashboarding, and your mixed methods skills as you evangelize insights through rich storytelling. You’ll work closely with UX Designers, other user researchers, data science, market research, and engineering partners to proactively drive investments in our ecosystem flywheel, and ensure that we’re addressing the most critical needs and opportunities.
We're looking for someone that is forward-thinking and willing to challenge & provoke new ideas. This position requires strong research, storytelling, and organization skills, and the ability to work across teams. The ability to establish a strong point of view – informed by market and user level insights – and to leverage that to focus and define product strategy is a must.
We’re especially looking for someone who wants to learn, grow, and embody new ways of working. If you embrace growth mindset, have a track record of delivering results, and you light up collaborating with other planners, researchers, designers, product managers and engineers this is an awesome team to join.
