Senior UX Research Manager, Identity

If you have the drive to build amazing digital products and experiences that impact the lives of millions, we want you! We’re looking for a product research professional with a highly consumer-focused mindset to join the product research team and drive the design of solutions for our customers - solutions that rethink common online challenges, that invent new ways of connecting to customers, and that connect the physical world with the digital. We’re looking for someone who has the passion to understand and analyze user behavior and trends and use that knowledge to drive ground-breaking digital consumer products

You’ll be joining a team full of world-class user researchers who lose sleep over the best ways to truly understand our consumers!

·         Possess strong advocacy for users throughout the product development process.

·         A great communicator and storyteller (and can prove it) both written and in person
