Oculus is looking for world-class researcher to the newly created Insights & Growth team at Oculus, a centralized team of Analytics, User Research, and Growth. This team's charter is to help drive a data-first culture and a deep understanding of users to impact the strategy and direction of Oculus. As Head of User Research at Oculus, you must be familiar with every aspect of the product development lifecycle for hardware and software including up-front research and discovery, definition, and analysis of requirements. What makes a good candidate? Someone who has exceptional research skills, but who also understands the tradeoffs between rigor and being scrappy, and ultimately how research translates into design and product decisions. You will oversee and continue to build a team of world-class researchers across all of our products, and across multiple research disciplines. The role requires you to be an expert researcher with a proven track record of doing research that impacts a complex and diverse set of products and building and managing high-performing teams, preferably with researchers of varying specializations (i.e. design research, human factors, UX research, etc.). You will be required to articulate the vision of the team to design, engineering and product leadership and be a strong advocate for the role of research in product development. You must become a trusted, strategic partner to product stakeholders by communicating and demonstrating the value of user research, and by delivering insights that lead to demonstrable business value. You must be a qualitative and quantitative data expert, but also know when to trust your gut. The Head of User Research is a full-time position in Menlo Park reporting into the Oculus Insights organization. However, you will also have direct reports in Seattle and London and must be able to build strong relationships with reports and teams in other locations.
