Senior UX Researcher – Germany
You’re a really good UX researcher. You undoubtedly make a big difference to your organisation’s output. But do you ever wonder if you could be using your skills to change something more meaningful?
That’s exactly what you’ll be doing in this vital, visible new role within the digital wing of a leading pharmaceutical company. Here, the products and services you help to improve will accelerate the development of better healthcare across the world in areas as diverse as disease detection, stroke prevention, dementia, and veterinary care.
Your expertise will be very welcome here. You’ll be joining a positive, talented design team (eight in Germany and four in Shanghai) whose ‘herzblut’ is to keep exploring new ways to innovate, improve and make an impact. What they’re lacking is dedicated UX research support. That’s where you come in…
Your brief is to shape a new research landscape for the team. That starts with understanding how they currently work, then introducing changes to processes and practices that strengthen their methodology set, for both qualitative and quantitative research. Ultimately, you’ll be supporting your colleagues on their journey to become exceptional UX research practitioners.
If you’re looking for greater influence and impact, this is an ideal move. You won’t be just another UX researcher here – working closely with the new Head of UX, you’ll be charting new territory. What’s more, the changes you inspire will help to educate other parts of the business on the value of research and insight. It’s definitely a role that will open doors for you.
Whilst experience in a healthcare setting would be useful, it’s not essential. What’s most important is that you have a proven record of working with human-centered design methodologies on high-quality digital products. It’s likely that your CV includes most of the following:
As for personal skills, your colleagues see you as positive and collaborative – someone who can facilitate useful workshops and bring team members and stakeholders together, even when working remotely. You need to be able to communicate well, in writing and in person, in English; German would be a bonus.
You’re happy working 100% remotely to begin with. In time, we anticipate that you’ll spend around 3 days a week in the office, in Germany.
You’ll be joining a global top-20 pharma business with a research-driven focus on innovative therapies that can extend patient’s lives; there’s always something new in the pipeline here. The team and business culture will allow you to focus on long-term goals, not short-term shareholder returns. All in all, it’s a fantastic place to develop your career.
