🧩 Why Join Us

User Interviews is a fully remote team and has always been. We prioritize staying connected, despite not sharing a physical workspace. We value remote culture and strive to maintain it.

We're a team of doers who empower each other. While you'll receive full support from your manager and team, you'll have autonomy and trust to take ownership of your work. Clear and transparent communication with your distributed teammates is expected.

We're also very pro-feedback, both from our users and each other. From individual contributors to the CEO, continuous improvement is genuinely important to us.

⭐️ About User Interviews

At User Interviews, we believe that the best companies in the world consistently deliver products and experiences that their customers love. We also believe that the only way to consistently build those products and experiences is to talk to your customers. Watch what they do. Understand why they do what they do. Figure out why they do things that seem irrational. And after you’ve done that once, do it again.

We help teams set up those conversations (i.e. user research), enabling them to discover and embrace user insights. We specialize in participant recruitment and management because you cannot do good research without good participants, no matter how good your other tools may be.

Our “Recruit” product allows researchers to source participants for any type of research study. Our secret sauce is our matching engine – which can find niche participants (e.g. SMB owners who use Toast POS systems, software developers who use Azure, moms who buy Kellogg’s Corn Flakes) in hours.

Our “Research Hub” product allows teams to build a research panel / research CRM to manage and coordinate research with their own customer contacts.

We work with over a thousand of companies each month, including user-centric organizations like Microsoft, Amazon, Atlassian, Spotify, and Colgate-Palmolive. We raised a $27.5M Series B last December.
