We are currently seeking an energetic and innovative UX Researcher to join JP Morgan in Glasgow on an initial 6 months contract with the opportunity of converting to permanent. You should have previous UX Research experience to be considered.
J.P. Morgan is transforming the future of private banking by incorporating a strong Product, Research and Design discipline along with emerging technologies into the products and services we create. Our team, which sits within J.P. Morgan's Wealth Management, serves J.P Morgan Private Bank clients, as well as their advisors. We develop and refine the tools that are essential for helping our clients grow, maintain, and make their money work smarter so they can reach their financial goals. The products we design must add value and strengthen the relationship between our clients and their advisors, while adding minimal complexity to their already busy lives. To do our job well, we utilize user-centered techniques to help us break through the industry jargon and bureaucracy and find insights that others can't. We elevate UX not just to solve users' problems but also to use design to steer the product's evolution into a powerful and extensible framework.
We are looking for a creative and resourceful UX Researcher with strong design research skills to join our rapidly growing team of innovators, disruptors and problem solvers. This role is based in Glasgow, working directly with an international team located in Hong Kong, New York, Bangalore, Singapore, London, Glasgow, and Geneva.
As a UX Researcher you will develop research strategies that deliver actionable insights using qualitative and quantitative research methods to improve and innovate desktop and mobile user experiences. This is a hands-on role, where you will scope and craft research plans, conduct research sessions, and present your study findings to business stakeholders.
Naturally, we want someone who can think outside the box and provide fresh thought leadership, but we are also looking for an individual who will complement and embody our team culture - caring and empathizing with our customers, showing kindness, seeing a need or pain point and actively reaching out to help. If you can explain why you're that person, we want you!
