(We're looking for someone to drive exciting changes at Leaf)

Mike Carter
Who are we?

Leaf are a remote studio based in South-East England, who blend insights and strategy to create digital products for forward-thinking organisations.

About the role

We celebrate our 4th birthday in June, and while it has been a wonderful ride to be on, we're looking for a researcher to help ensure that the next 4 are every bit as fun.

To date, Leaf's marketing strategy could be boiled down to something along the lines of, 'people talk; do good work, and we'll win more'. Going forward, that strategy will be somewhat more calculated, and research is that heart of it.

Primary responsibilities

  • Devising and undertaking market and UX research to support Leaf's lead generation strategy.
  • Setting-up and running qualitative and quantitative user research activities.
  • Communicating your findings effectively to the team and external content editors.
  • Conducting interviews and creating relationships with key stakeholders.
  • Sourcing individuals from appropriate demographics for user testing sessions.

  • Note: In this role, you'll be asked to wear many hats, work outside your comfort zone, and have complete ownership of the area.

About you

  • You have background in research, with at least 3 years industry experience.
  • You thrive being a big fish in a smaller pond (you'll be the 6th member of the team).
  • You're a natural communicator; being able to articulate your point, both internally and to users, is essential.
  • You have a portfolio of case studies that show-off your best moves.
  • You love to teach what you know, and learn what you don't.
  • You're bursting with passion, and have a natural drive to better yourself.
Bonus points if…
  • You have experience conducting research remotely.
  • You're able to lead, rather than be lead.
  • You have real-World experience or are further educated in psychology or a related field.


This is a remote position, although a few times a year we like everyone to drop into Canterbury for a bit of face-time with the rest of the team. The company themselves are based in Canterbury; famous for its cathedrals, cobbles and tales.
