Job description

Who are we? 

PayFit simplifies payroll management and HR processes for SMBs. PayFit is an automated SaaS solution to help business owners and HR professionals save time and money allowing them to refocus on what really matters: their employees. Since 2015, we have set ourselves a mission to support the digital transformation of HR management through our ever growing range of product features and services. We have a strong presence in France and have been quickly growing in Germany, Spain and in the UK. With 7,000 customers in 4 countries, we are one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in Europe.

Care for each other

Always stay humble

Strive for excellence

Live and work with passion

We are committed to a culture of inclusion and an environment that enables fulfillment in freedom & responsibility.

How do we operate? ✏️

As one of the leading European fintech companies, what makes us stand out is our discovery-driven methodology that is embraced by our global product department.

Our product teams are organised in tribe triforces: design, product management, and engineering teams work hand together for strategic discoveries in order to ensure our product fits our user's needs. We also have country-based product teams that are in charge of localising payroll workflows and experiences.

User Research practices have become highly strategic within our product organisation. We want to promote a hybrid approach to how user research operates by creating a self-serve research model while still bringing in User Researcher Experts in strategic product decisions.

As we are scaling the teams’ expertise, we are looking for experienced user researchers with a range of expertise to help us drive our product strategies, increase the quality of insights and scale our practices.

  • Leading research planning and execution, effectively building alignment with cross-functional peers and stakeholders throughout the research process.
  • Clearly communicating insights, tying directly to actionable next steps and impact on product direction and company strategy (why does it matter to us and to our customers?).
  • Supporting more junior researchers and non-researchers in carrying out their own research projects.

  • You understand business strategy and how research relates to that: you connect the dots with the business outcomes and the voice of our customers.
  • You have experience with a broad range of research methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative, across the various stages of product development.
  • You speak English fluently, and you want to work in an international and dynamic environment. You are able to conduct research in French and English and ideally in another language (Spanish or German).
  • Curious, creative, and empathetic, you show a high degree of collaboration and are comfortable partnering with cross-functional peers to ideate.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment and are able to execute with autonomy.
