  • Support design validation and/or iteration through iterative usability testing
  • Validate design direction through participatory design, early concept testing, formative and summative usability testing.
  • Collaborate on feature definition and user story creation as needed.
  • Leverage existing ServiceNow user groups and communities as an additional channel for eliciting feedback.
  • Communicate your findings through artifacts such as personas, journeys, task analyses, etc. as needed to your core team.
  • Partner closely with Senior Design and Research colleagues to help influence the product strategy and roadmaps with validated user research findings.

 

What you need to be successful in this role:

  • 1 to 5 years of direct experience or equivalent combination of education and experience in market, product, customer, user experience, or academic research. Preferably for product development purposes.
  • Previous experience defining, planning and executing research studies including outlining objectives, goals, and timelines.  This includes developing sample plans and determining the best data collection approach using quantitative and/or qualitative methods.
  • Ability to develop insightful, probing questions that resonate with technical and business minded end-users using enterprise software. 
  • Capable of performing fundamental data analysis and synthesis to generate meaning from the raw data.
  • Working knowledge of user interface design, usability evaluation techniques, perception, cognition, task analysis, experimental design and statistics.
  • Exposure to design tools such as Axure RP, Sketch or other wireframe tools.
  • Excellent written and oral communication abilities. Can prepare reports of findings and actionable insights, illustrating research data graphically and translating complex findings into written text.  Experience working with and presenting research results to senior stakeholders.
  • Willing to be proactive and take initiative to learn about ServiceNow products and customers.
