Kinsta is a modern cloud hosting company focused on WordPress hosting. We run our services on cutting-edge technology and we are proud of the level of support we offer to our customers. Our talented and motivated team is scattered across the globe with team members hailing from every continent but Antarctica! We're constantly on the lookout for great talent to join our awesome team. If you’d like to become part of the Kinsta family, hit apply!

We are looking for a motivated and professional UX Researcher to help us grow and enhance the best hosting service and site management dashboard on the market. This is an opportunity to work in a dynamically growing international company where what you do has a direct and immediate impact.

This role is an especially unique opportunity because we are looking for our first hire with this title. Our Design team has taken care of all the research duties for discovery and validation so far but to keep a steady pace in our delivery with a rapidly growing team we want someone to take the helm in this area. This also means we are looking for someone who can not only carry out the research tasks but also work with us in optimizing the inclusion of research in our workflows, extend our tools and methods for research, and potentially further grow the research competence at Kinsta.

The Design team consists of the Product Design and the Marketing Design teams at Kinsta, but the UX Researcher will report directly to the Head of Design. On the one hand, because both areas would benefit from what a research professional can bring to the table, and also because of the above reason of finding the place of research within our organization.
