Posted on Friday, February 17, 2023

Trucking is a $637 billion-dollar industry in North America and we’re looking to grow our piece of the pie in it! At FleetOps, our focus is first on truck drivers - and we need your help.

We’re looking to hire a UX Researcher that will help better understand our users’ needs, and spread a culture of human-centered, qualitative research throughout the company.

The successful candidate has experience in defining problems, selecting the appropriate research methods, synthesizing insights, evaluating prototypes and assisting with building and releasing projects. You will be supporting multiple teams throughout the research process and therefore presenting research methods and results will be crucial.

*Note that this position, in part, requires the candidate to spend time in the field with truck drivers and/or other logistics parties (e.g. visiting truck stops, meeting with truck drivers in-person, observing their behavior in natural settings, etc.); therefore, the successful candidate has proven experience in conducting field research. *

  • Prepare recommendations and deliver presentations to influence company strategy and guide key stakeholders to better understand user needs
