UX Research Coordinator

Founded in 2009, SendGrid is an industry-disrupting, cloud-based customer communication platform that solves the challenges of reliably delivering emails on behalf of our customers.  We deliver over 33 billion emails a month for customers like Airbnb, Spotify, and Uber.

SendGrid is looking for a super organized and responsible UX research coordinator who can help us smoothly handle all logistics around customer interviews and usability sessions including recruiting, screening, scheduling and following-up. As a coordinator, you will be responsible for maintaining high customer satisfaction by carefully managing the number of requests to a particular customer and being particularly mindful of at-risk customers.

What You'll Do

  • Live by and champion our cultural values of Happy, Hungry, Honest, and Humble.
  • Work with product managers, product designers, UX researchers and product marketing managers to target, recruit, schedule and track research appointments with our customers and prospects.
  • Maintain high customer satisfaction by carefully managing the number of requests to a particular customer and being particularly mindful of at-risk customers.
  • Follow up with customers to thank them for their participation and occasionally send out gift cards and company swag in gratitude.
  • Occasionally serve as a note taker for research sessions.
  • Look for and implement ways to improve our research recruiting, scheduling and tracking process and tools.
  • We're an agile, fast growing company and this job description isn't meant to be a complete list of your qualifications or all of the things you'll do.

About You

  • You have a Bachelor’s Degree.
  • You might have experience as a sales or lead development representative, office manager, project manager, or administrative assistant.
  • People say you are very organized, efficient and good at keeping track of multiple projects at the same time.
  • Finding time on a busy calendar is a challenge that you never shy away from.
  • Your written communication style is very professional. You’d never let a typo slip through in a customer email and you are super fast at typing up notes.
  • Ideally, you have a passion for customer research and are excited to be part of of a UX team.
  • Accountable - Being willing to answer for the outcomes resulting from their own choices, behaviors, and actions. Take ownership of situations that they're involved in
  • Self Motivated - Motivated to do or achieve something because of one's own enthusiasm or interest, without needing pressure from others
  • Focused - Achieve what they set out to do before launching new initiatives. Complete company-linked goals and tasks, not simply to be busy and active
  • Collaborative - A keen ability to support cross-functional projects and decisions. Gets energized from working within a team and cross-functionally to achieve the company's goals
