UX Researcher

Telecommute · Hartford, Connecticut, United States


Skylight (https://skylight.digital/) is at the forefront of a civic movement to reinvent how the government serves the public in a digital world.

We’re looking for a UX Researcher to join our talented team of technologists in driving this movement forward.

You’ll be a key part of our small, but rapidly growing team, which consists of former Presidential Innovation Fellows, founders of 18F, and members of the U.S. Digital Service.

We work in small, fast, agile teams to create exceptional customer experiences and enduring solutions out of the government’s most complex design and technology challenges. The work is challenging, but highly rewarding.

You initial engagement will be with the State of Connecticut’s Office of Early Childhood (OEC). OEC supports over 200,000 young children, parents, and caregivers annually through a variety of policies, programs, and services. Some of the outcomes that are important to the success of OEC include improving early childhood development and learning, improving kindergarten readiness, reducing infant deaths, and improving the overall health and welfare of every child.

Our job is to help OEC better measure progress toward these outcomes. This will involve identifying and making changes to existing data systems, as well as designing and building new data systems, in order to supply data for key performance indicators and metrics. If we succeed, OEC will be empowered to make more evidence-based policy, program, and service delivery decisions.
