What is Askable

Askable is revolutionising the UX industry by helping designers find and manage participants for UX testing at the click of a button. The Askable platform automates the most painful and time consuming parts of doing user testing such as sourcing the right people, selecting and managing quotas, sending reminders and handling incentive payments. Founded in 2017, Askable has quickly become an indispensable tool for UX designers from companies like Woolies, Telstra, Mastercard, Westpac, Xero, Canon, Vodafone, Dominos, Afterpay, Deloitte and many more. Your work directly impacts the jobs of people who are making better products for millions of their customers globally. Your work also directly impacts the lives of tens of thousands of participants in the Askable panel.

We're looking for a head of product who can help supercharge us and take us to the next level. If you are dedicated to user experience and thrive on solving complex problems that are a mix of business and user behaviour, this role is for you. You'll work with a small, highly motivated team of Sales, Customer Support and Engineering. If you want to make a meaningful impact on a platform that UX designers rely on and use everyday, this is an outstanding opportunity.

Askable is 100% self funded so we don't answer to anyone. As the product & design lead you get to make the final calls when it comes to the product direction - there are no board members or investors to please or pander to. 

No recruiters.
