User Researcher

Philadelphia, PA
Contractor (Remote)
At Seer, we pride ourselves on innovation; on standing out among the rest and enabling our clients to do the same. We do this by offering best in class digital strategy, backed by data, and driven through a variety of interactive tools that fuel our passion for the digital space.
You, the User Researcher of our dreams, are passionately curious and obsessed with getting to “why.” You’ve always been fascinated by people--their motivations, needs, and actions--and you pick up on details that they may not even realize. You have the ability to put people at ease in conversations and let their responses shine without getting in the way. You’ve been conducting user research for a few years now, and you never met an interviewee you couldn’t crack or a survey you couldn’t interpret.

You’re a quick-thinking, fast-moving problem solver with the ability to do research in imperfect situations and settings. While you may be used to applying your research to design projects, you’re pumped to dig into how this research applies to a user’s full online experience, including audience targeting, messaging, and content strategies.  You’re so great with people that some may assume you aren’t great with numbers, but they’d be wrong. The balance of right brain emotional intelligence and left brain analysis is something you’ve mastered. You’re a natural teacher and can’t wait to share the latest and greatest techniques you’ve perfected over time with our team.

Here are some highlights of what you'll be doing...

    • Develop audience research plans on clients in various industries, such as education, banking, Saas, and more.  
    • Execute and conduct surveys, interviews, user testing exercises, and on-site analytics tests
