AngelList Talent

Our mission is to bring world-changing teams together.

Today, AngelList Talent is the world’s largest network of startup talent. Over 100,000 startups of all sizes—from Flexport, to Figma, to Facebook—have used AngelList Talent to build their teams. In 2018, over two million candidates—from CTOs to interns—used our tools to apply for jobs, while millions more used them to research their next move.

AngelList Talent operates independently alongside AngelList Venture and Product Hunt. Each company within the AngelList family is focused on addressing a challenge to startup success: building the right team, connecting with the right investors, or launching your next product.


How you’ll work

As our inaugural user researcher, you will own and shape AngelList’s research practices and augment our ability to ship fast. You will plan and execute generative research so that we can deeper understand the goals and experiences of our users and find new opportunities for our products. Additionally, you will work directly with product managers and designers to conduct and support evaluative research at various points of the product lifecycle.

Specifically you will:

* Be our first researcher. While our PMs and designers have conducted (and will continue to conduct) user research, we expect you to take the charge in formalizing and streamlining most of this process.
* Manage and own the knowledge base for all of AngelList’s research. Designers will come to you before starting a study and depend on you to prevent duplicative work.
* Collaborate with our recruiters to recruit, screen, and schedule participants.
* Support the immediate needs of PMs and designers on concurrent studies, including planning, writing scripts, assisting user interviews, analyzing and synthesizing findings, and making recommendations to the team as the domain expert.
* Proactively identify, prioritize, and investigate research topics based on company goals and gaps in understanding.
* Foster shared understanding of UX research best practices.


What we look for

This position will report to our Head of Design and collaborate across many disciplines so you will need to be highly skilled in communication and mentorship. You will also need to have mastery of your craft so that you can make sound decisions about when to honor the rigidity of scientific research and when to be flexible in order to move fast.

* 2-5 years of experience integrating user research learnings into actionable product changes
* Strong command of a wide variety of research methodologies and techniques for synthesis
* Ability to act on or make strong recommendations to a fast-paced and scrappy team based on solid understanding of their pros and cons
* Exceptional communication and collaboration skills
* Experience in driving and creating effective processes

Bonus points for:

* Success with UX research in B2B industries
* Strong quantitative data analysis skills
* Experience writing SQL
