About the Role:

We’re recruiting for an experienced UX Researcher to spearhead a wide range of research initiatives here at Lawlabs Inc., a London-based start up servicing real estate legal professionals.

Privately operated and founded in London, Ontario, our team consists of a passionate group of tech experts who are on a mission to change the real estate closing experience for lawyers, clerks and clients alike and also have some fun along the way!

  • Designing and leading the execution of a variety of customer research that will enable our team to understand customer pain points and behaviors.

  • Conducting usability tests with lawyers and clerks based on designs created by our product team and assisting with iteration processes.
  • Critiquing wireframes and prototypes along with using user insights to offer alternative ideas.
  • Identifying, articulating and prioritizing potential usability issues.
  • Facilitating internal meetings to triage and/or manage research findings.
  • Communicating usability analysis, recommendations and potential design solutions.

You probably possess some of the following skills/ experience/ interest:

  • Practical experience executing both generative and evaluation research methodologies.
  • Great collaboration skills and a love for working with others to understand and solve user problems.
  • Experience with common user research and usability testing methodologies and proven ability using data to inform your designs and decisions.
