UX Researcher

Codemill is expanding and now we have a new open position as UX Researcher!

Hi there! 

Are you looking for new opportunities after your summer vacation? Great! We might be the perfect fit for you! 

At Codemill, we want to entertain the world by making the production of high quality content easier. In the past years we have made great progress at Codemill and we have expanded our knowledge, skills and number of employees. We recently got introduced to the stock market and we see a continued growth after the summer as well, so this is why we are now looking for an UX Researcher to join our great staff! 

We are currently building the web-based video platform Accurate Video, that is used within the media and broadcasting business. Our tools help our customers to manage quality control, marketing, editing and automatic adjustments and AI services.  

 

About Codemill

Working at Codemill means being part of a company that strives towards becoming the best IT workplace in Sweden, if not the world! We always work in teams and value personal development. As a developer at Codemill you will work either with building and improving our own product Accurate Video or work in exciting projects to help our customers succeed in an innovative way. 

We value the sense of community and collaboration and we think that it’s very important to make our co-workers feel comfortable at work. To further the great atmosphere and work environment we do a lot of activities together, both during and after working hours. We, of course, also have benefits to promote good health and teamwork.

 

Working as a UX Researcher

At Codemill we work in agile teams with focus on usability and sustainable, well-coded solutions. Your responsibility as an UX Researcher is to ensure that user and customer needs are properly researched, documented and understood by all product teams so that we can deliver better solutions to their problems. A big part of the staff has UX knowledge and work as UX Designers or UX Developers, but this will be our first UX Researcher position. This job involves (but are not limited to): 

  • Together with the team, defining and setting up a UX research strategy  (gathering, storing, and disseminating research data).
  • Participating in customer meetings.
  • Qualitative and quantitative research with end users. 
  • Defining user types (personas).
  • Documenting and sharing user workflows and needs.
  • Communicating customer requirements and user needs continuously with stakeholders, designers, & developers.
  • Supporting PMs with feature prioritization & scope.
  • Participating in ideation sessions and evaluating ideas for new solutions.
  • User testing of new and existing features (internally and externally).

 

You will report to your Team Manager and together you will have regular follow-ups to make sure that you are satisfied with your work situation and have the opportunity to develop your competence.  You will have close communication with your teammates and in these pandemic times we are using digital technologies to maintain our good collaboration.

 

Your qualifications

For this position we are looking for someone with at least a few years of experience within the UX field. We prefer that you have worked close to customers and end users and that you have used different methods to gather research data. One of the most important things is that you find the video- and media business interesting and want to build great things together with us. 

It’s preferable if you have an academic background within for example Interaction Design, Information Systems or Behavioural Science. As a person you should be service-minded and proactive, curious to learn new things, enjoy collaborating with others and willing to share your knowledge. 

 

Future opportunities

As a part of the Codemill staff, you have the opportunity to develop your skills further regardless if you want to have a wide set of skills or if you want to specialize in something specific. We always strive to use modern technologies and innovative solutions and right now we focus a lot on cloud distribution and security. As you begin to settle in your role as a UX Researcher, you may have the chance to take on more responsibility.

 

About the position

This position is full-time and can be performed fully remote within EU or UK. We have our main office in Umeå but we have learned to work in a distributed way during the pandemic. We have flexible working hours and the opportunity to work with the latest technology. 

 

There is no defined starting date yet but we will start interviewing for this position in August.

We encourage female applicants to apply for this position.
