Lead UX Researcher
Ticketing is a complex, historically opaque industry with a unique set of challenges. At SeatGeek, we aim to open ticketing with fresh technology, thoughtful interfaces, and an above-all-else focus on our users.

We’re looking for an experienced researcher to accelerate ongoing research efforts, formalize best practices, and scale insights gathering across our product, engineering, and design teams. You’ll be the first full time researcher and help us evolve our insights gathering processes as we scale. You’ll be an integral part of our product strategy setting process and help ensure we continue to focus building the right thing in addition to building the things right.

What You'll Do

  • Rely on quantitative and qualitative research methodologies to help us better understand users
  • Distill and communicate research results to both specific teams and SeatGeek at large to help magnify the impact of the findings
  • Document and track learnings gathered through testing and research so insights can easily be referenced and applied for future projects
  • Promote tools and best practices to enable product managers, designers and developers to conduct research
  • Collaborate to prioritize research opportunities in a rapidly changing environment
  • Build empathy across the organization to help us stay true to our consumer advocate company values as we grow
