Permanent employee, Full-time · Dublin

The Role

Personio is the all-in-one people software for small and medium-sized companies. With offices in Munich, Madrid, London, Dublin, and Amsterdam, Personio is on a mission to make HR processes as transparent and efficient as possible so HR can focus on what matters most: people and strategy. 


As the name says, our Core HR Domain is responsible for core HR functionalities, such as Absences, Time Tracking, Document Management, Employee Profiles as well as Analytics & Reporting. We are on a mission to empower organizations for employee self-service and remarkable employee management. This can only be accomplished by providing a best-in-class user experience that is solidly rooted in an in-depth understanding of human resources, organizations and most of all, people at work. 


Like all our tribes and teams we are a cross-functional group of engineers, designers, researchers and product managers from many different nationalities and backgrounds, spread across different locations, continuing to grow in 2022.


As a Senior UX Researcher, your goal at Personio is to provide in-depth understanding of our users to empower our product teams to make the best user-centered decisions. We do this by using scientific methods to gather and connect insights that we then use to find innovative ways of improving the user experience. In the UX research team, we support each other’s work, provide peer review and provide quality insurance for all research effort across our Product, Design and Engineering department.


All in all, we are looking for an experienced and forward-thinking Senior UX Researcher who will bring a high interest in the topic of HR, and a diligent approach to their research.
