Here at Generation Home, we have an ambitious goal: Helping everyone to become a homeowner.

Increasing prices, stagnant wages, high rents, and insufficient housing stock have put homeownership permanently out of reach for too many.

We are on a mission to transform the housing market: We’re broadening access to homeownership for aspiring first-time buyers, simplifying the home-buying process, and promoting our customers’ financial wellbeing through the smarter management of their home finances. Backed by leading institutional & angel investors, and a rapidly growing team, we’re set for an exceptional 2022.

The challenge is huge and we are looking for passionate people with diverse skills and backgrounds to add to our rapidly growing team. And that’s where you come in:

Your mission

As the first UX Researcher within the team, you’ll get the opportunity to own this space and create a framework for the business to follow when it comes to drawing new insights!

The design team is currently a centralised unit that works with multiple cross-functional product teams, meaning you need to be comfortable working with Product Managers, Engineers, Senior Management and our Operations team.

Day to day responsibilities:

  • As a company, we’re reinventing what it means to be a mortgage lender. That means we’ve got a real need for high-quality exploratory research. You’ll be tasked with creating an insights bank to enable our product teams to deliver real value to our customers.
  • Build a research framework to empower product teams to perform operational, evaluative and generative research in a structured and impactful way.
  • Evaluate solutions, and identify new propositions by uncovering customer needs and feedback.

We are looking for someone who has:

  • Owned, run and synthesised large research projects across the spectrum of research types.
  • Excellent qualitative research skills, and bonus points if you’ve done some quant too.
  • Experience across a range of methodologies (especially ethnographic studies, with interviews, diary studies and shadowing in your arsenal).
  • Worked on a live customer-facing product and with a product team.
  • A background in a startup, scale-up, or consumer-driven environment.
  • Problem-solving skills: Mortgages are complicated! We need you to dig deep into complex problems and define solutions clearly.


The application process consists of a video call to discuss the role and the team, a portfolio review and skills assessment with the Hiring Manager, and a couple of get-to-know calls with the team. There won’t be any brain teasers or trick questions!

  • A competitive salary, depending on skills and experience
