UX Researcher - New Product Experimentation at Facebook
Menlo Park, CA, US

The New Product Experimentation (NPE) team builds new applications to explore user behaviors and needs that are mission aligned but not covered by the existing Facebook Family of Apps. NPE will build and test apps in the market, seeing if they can build retentive audiences.

As a researcher on NPE, you’ll have the opportunity to partner directly with a single, tightly integrated pod with significant freedom to operate with the time, people and space necessary for conceiving, building and launching brand new products. Research is paramount to this organization’s success - formative research is needed to identify the right latent needs or problems in the world to tackle with product solutions, iterative design research is needed to mold early product ideas into testable prototypes, and creative evaluative research is needed to improve and prepare those products for market.

For this position we are looking for experienced individual contributors who will help elevate the practice of research with creative but rigorous qualitative, quantitative, and/or design research methods. The right candidates will be excellent communicators, knowledgeable about product design, passionate about understanding people, curious about the relationship between technology and society, comfortable in a flat, fast moving organization, and a great collaborator.
