Who We Are

Stensul dramatically reduces marketing creation time - by up to 90% - so teams can better focus on improving marketing performance. Stensul makes this possible by streamlining the collaboration process and simplifying marketing asset creation for all marketers so they can create high-performing campaigns that drive stronger results. Stensul integrates with all leading ESPs/MAPs, workflow platforms, image digital asset management platforms, live content, link tracking, and messaging platforms. Top brands that trust Stensul to solve their most demanding marketing creation problems include BlackRock, BMW, Cisco, Demandbase, Equifax, Greenhouse, Siemens, Thomson Reuters, and Yahoo.

What You will Do

Stensul is building the future of content creation, and we can only get there by understanding the complex workflows, contexts, and behaviors of marketing content creators. This first-of-its-kind role in our Product and Design organization will work with Product and Design leadership to establish a research practice for our category-defining platform.

We’re looking for an experienced UX Research professional to join and help define our practice. They will be an immaculate communicator, dedicated to the craft of research, have an exceptional quality bar, be insatiably curious about solving real problems in a long underserved space, and be committed to continuous growth both professionally and organizationally. This person would need to be comfortable working hand-in-hand daily with Product triads of PMs, Designers, and Engineers, as well as speaking to C-level partners. They will be a self-starter, able to negotiate a startup environment that may be unfamiliar with some common patterns and practices, and able to self-advocate and show the path forward.
