Who we are looking for - UX Research Intern

In this internship, you will be gaining valuable field experience by conducting every step of your own independent research, analyzing real user behavior, and working with a highly experienced team of UX Designers, Products Managers, and Engineers.

More Specifically, you will…

  • Prepare, conduct, and analyze all steps and methods in your own user validation research

  • Interact with hundreds of small to medium business owners who are passionate about giving BloomNation feedback

  • Analyze qualitative data and prepare research readouts/decks/reports that effectively communicate research findings to Product and Engineering teams

  • Create and execute strategy for recruiting research participants

  • Keep research database updated (aka, clients who have opted-in to participate in our research)

  • Communicate effectively with participants to schedule meetings, on-site visits, and updates regularly to build/maintain company brand and rapport

  • Work on ad-hoc projects as needed

  • Be an active contributor, team-player, and learn as much as you can from your peers!

 

The Right Person - Experience/Qualifications/Persona

__________________________________________________________________________________________________
