Team Lead - User Experience Research

location Sales & Business Development

We’re on a mission to reinvent 3D design for the 21st century.

To achieve this, we’re completely reimagining legacy computer-aided design (CAD) tools with an iconic, mobile-first product. Over the past two years of high-speed growth, our Apple Design Award-winning app has been regularly featured in Apple Keynotes and commercials, and demoed in retail stores around the world. But what we’re most proud of is the global user base that uses our product every day. We’re backed by top European VCs Point9 Capital and Creandum, focusing our $6M Series A on scaling our team across the board.

Wanted: a proactive Team Lead for our User Experience Research Team who will spearhead our research efforts and help define our product roadmap. 

Research and design lie at the core of everything we do at Shapr3D. We’re on a mission to deliver a captivating and seamless user experience - unlike anything the industry has experienced before. And our researchers are in charge of discovering everything that makes product UX top-notch so that we can deliver on that promise. As our Lead UX Researcher, you’ll have the opportunity to directly impact our product growth.

More from Peter Schuszter, one of our User Researchers:

“It’s unbelievably rewarding to listen to these bright people. First, because they are super-passionate about their work, but also because they just love to talk to us as they are immensely grateful for how Shapr3D can unleash their creativity. Yes, you’ll hear about their frustrations too, but that’s the juice of it.”

This is a high-impact, cross-functional role with the potential to affect change at the core level of our product. You will regularly interface with our product design team, UX researchers, and prototypers from the engineering team in a fast-paced and exciting startup environment that is obsessed with product usability.
