User Experience Researcher at Patreon
San Francisco, CA, US

Do you believe that creators should have the ability to get paid for the value they give to their fans? 

We do, which is why we're building Patreon, a platform that powers membership services for creators with established followings. Patreon strives to provide creators with insight, education, and tools that make it possible to retain creative control while running their creative business, so creators can focus on creating and energizing their fanbases. 


Our user base has doubled in the last year alone, and we have paid over $150 million directly to creators on our platform.​​In order to support this level of growth, we are looking for a UX Researcher to join our growing research team and help us solve hard problems. Patreon is trying to change norms around how creators relate to their fanbases, how fans pay for content, and how creators run their businesses. Because of this, there are many greenfield areas that we need to explore.
