UX Research Ambassadorat UXinsight

Wouldn’t it be great if every product and service started with the user in mind? That organisations take user needs into account not just at the end, but throughout the process? Applying a research process that is both inclusive and ethical. Our dream is to make that happen! 

We believe that we can play a substantial part in helping the UX community grow and professionalise. We do so by bringing researchers from all over the world together to share experiences and knowledge. Services we offer the UX community include: 

Your role 

We are looking for a colleague who shares our dream and wants to grow the UXR community together.  

Maybe you love to organise meetups? Or write articles on research? You might have an extensive network of UX people around you, or be in the process of building one. Are you a trainer? Or active on social media? You love coaching young researchers or find experienced researchers who are willing to share their learnings?  

There are multiple ways you can play your part in helping the community grow. We are looking for a new colleague responsible for one or more of the activities we employ. Every week we discuss strategy together, brainstorm on new ideas, reflect on previous actions. And after that, you work independently on your goals. You’ll both be able to try new things on your own, as well as working as a team to help build our existing ideas. 

Activities that can be part of your daily job: co-create a learning program (training/event), share insights (in a blog, social post or on a meetup), connect with experts, engage the community, coach a fellow researcher, and more – the role really can be whatever you want it to be!

  • You understand the challenges user researchers encounter and are eager to learn more about them.
