  • Design and conduct quantitative and qualitative studies including surveys and interviews on personal finance, banking, and money management.
  • Analyse your data to unlock useful insights for our current and future products.
  • Synthesise your findings in the form of simple presentations, reports, etc., to drive business and product decisions.

  • You'll create experiences that shape an iconic product. We believe in hiring smart people that pride themselves in good values, their work ethics, and holding great responsibility.

💯 You'd fit in if

  • You're self-driven. You'll often work with the design and product teams, but will largely be working alone without constant oversight.
  • You've done UX research before. You'll be the first of your kind to work with us. We'll be learning much more from you than you think. So having prior experience, and a background in Computer Science, Design, Psychology, and HCI, is a big plus.
  • You love talking to people. The core of your job is to talk to people and extract hidden insights. Whether it's surveys, interviews, or feedback, you cannot do without loving to talk to people.
  • You understand human psychology. Many times, people won't know the problems they have, and they won't know what solution they want. To be able to catch the hidden insights from their hints, you have to understand basic human psychology.
