Founded in 2001, Fjord employs a diverse group of over 900 design experts in twenty five global creative hubs.


At Fjord, the human is always at the center of everything we do. The Design Research practice at Fjord ensures that everything we deliver is grounded in a deep and contextual understanding of what matters to the people we are designing for.

As a team, we:

  • Develop ways to conduct effective primary research.

  • Define and lead research planning, execution, and analysis based on relevant research and business objectives.
  • Accurately assess performance of self and subordinates.
  • Lead design research deliverables at the project and account level.

  • Attend and help plan studio and community events, workshops, and conferences as a Fjord ambassador.

Working together, we will:

  • Have specific opportunities to use our craft to make a difference in people’s lives.
  • Engage in ongoing activities that enable us to learn, practice, and evolve our discipline.
  • Collaborate on products and services that change the way our clients do business.

 

Set yourself apart:

  • Experience conceptualizing and managing design research initiatives from start to finish.
  • Proven history of delivering results on time and within budget.
  • Working knowledge of all aspects of design research: recruiting processes; scheduling and logistics; protocol development; interviewing and moderating; analysis and framework development; video compilations; research deliverables.
  • Ability to learn new software quickly; experience with Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and video editing software.
  • Familiarity with online research tools is a plus.

 

 

What skills and experience are we looking for?


  • Strong and relevant experience; design research experience; experience in design research leadership and/or managerial experience.
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience in Design Research.

 

 

We are a family of Fjordians. Our living culture and borderless playground provide us with space to thrive, following simple core values that inform everything we do. Be adventurous. Bring a vision. Make an impact. Rely on empathy. Nurture collaboration. Stay transparent. Be bold and generous in all you do. 

 

Thanks to a unique partnership with Accenture, we’re able to do work that changes the world, and we’re always looking for kindred spirits.

 

We believe there is nothing more important than creating products and services that will positively impact the world we live. Keeping the human at the center of our design ensures that impact.
