Research Assistant

Typeform was founded when two designers spotted a problem and engaged their natural curiosity to solve it:

What if forms felt a little more human?

Today, Typeform is reinventing how brands and audiences interact. Video, conversational user interfaces, virtual reality—whatever the future of online interaction, we'll make sure delightful, human-focused design is front and center.

That’s where you come in. We’re looking for a Research Assistant to tackle complex problems in a collaborative way. 

Here’s Darci, our Product Design Director:

“We’re inspired by our customers and in turn we want to inspire them with great experiences. We’re building a Research team at Typeform that’s taking on exciting challenges across the company.”  

You’ll team up with other researchers in a fast-paced, customer-focused startup. You’ll engage with cross-functional teams that include designers, devs, QA, engineers, data scientists, and product managers. You’ll support Typeform's Research team and you’ll be a key collaborator for product ideation, A/B testing, and analysis.

Are you passionate about customer-centric products? Is your motto "why?". Do you believe that a great product starts with listening to customers?

If so, we’d love to talk to you.

  • Support members of the research team conduct appropriate research.

  • You have demonstrated experience (no less than 2 years) in the research field, in digital products or academic research.
  • You have experience working across different research methods,

  • You have the communication skills to help stakeholders and cross-functional teams understand thoughtful insights. 
  • You have experience building research project reports/updates. 
  • You can prepare interview questions and summarize results. 
  • You’re a natural listener, proactive, adaptable, and collaborative.
