As a small, nimble team we offer an opportunity to make a real impact - every role matters and everyone’s voice is heard.

You should be comfortable working with ambiguity and at pace as you collaborate to explore research questions that help us make better decisions across the Airtime experience. From paradigm shifts to micro-interactions, we’re looking for someone that can empathize deeply with our users to generate high impact insights that raise the bar of live social platforms.
