About Cookpad

Cookpad is a tech company building a community platform that enables people to share recipe ideas and cooking tips. It’s a global platform used by on average around 100 million people every month across the world. Over 4 million recipes have been created by people in almost 70 countries. And we’re only just getting started.

Our mission is to make everyday cooking fun. Because we believe that cooking is the key to a happier and healthier life for people, communities and the planet.

Our heritage is unique: Cookpad was founded in Japan in 1997 and is a listed company in Tokyo.

We set up our international HQ in Bristol, UK and here we’re a start-up, building the global platform and working with our colleagues around the world.

Cookpad is growing at speed and we’re looking for exceptional people who make things happen. It takes a certain mix of creativity, and ingenuity to create solutions on the scale we're looking for.

It’s not for everyone. Because of our speed and growth, it can feel chaotic. It's an environment where creators and problem-solvers flourish. We challenge ourselves and each other because this is about something bigger than all of us. Expect talented, motivated and interesting colleagues.

It feels like a start-up with global ambition. We work in small, collaborative teams and in a creative, fast-paced environment.


The UX Researcher Role

As a UX Researcher you will be responsible for developing and supporting Cookpad’s approach to international user research.

You believe that great experiences are always inspired by a deep understanding of the user. With your passion for helping the business better serve the needs of our global audience you will use research to uncover themes and patterns across a range of cultures and be able to distill the important insights to help us achieve Cookpad’s goals.

A hands-on practitioner, you’ll be just as happy to rapidly research and test new product features as well as undertake longer-term research around home cooking across the world and bring this to life to help teams make informed product decisions.

You thrive in a rapidly changing environment and enjoy designing effective research projects and delivering actionable research findings and recommendations and will have a passion for building a culture which puts the voice of the user at the heart of everything we do.
