The newly founded PL (Programming Languages) research Group at OutSystems (https://www.outsystems.com/) has a goal of exploring the
UI/UX frontier of Programming Tools.
We are looking for 3 UI/UX Research Engineers for Programming Languages & Tools (Remote) to join our group. Please forward to anyone you think might be interested by our call:

Director of Research, OutSystems
If you consider yourself (or aspire to be) a UI/UX expert with programming experience that wants to: “Boldly go where no programmer has gone before” don’t let any impostor syndrome stop you, apply to join us! What we are looking for in our research group – first and foremost – is explorers. Take a look at this short video to quickly learn more about OutSystems: OutSystems Platform Overview in 2 Minutes! - YouTube.
Your base responsibility will be the development of research prototypes from an engineering perspective. Nevertheless, the research nature of these prototypes will almost always require you to either learn a new language, a new system or way of working. You will always be given time and guidance (bibliography, books and an engineering starting point) to do so. The director of the group will always be there to guide you with all aspects of your work.
Once this base responsibility is fulfilled your UI/UX experience and expertise will help us go even further. What can we add to a good prototype to bring aesthetics and usability to the mix ? What will make us smile every time we use it ?
When you become comfortable with the above responsibilities you can start proposing your own experiments to the team and guide our newest members through the whole R&D process.
Finally, according to the group’s needs you will be tasked to present our work to colleagues, internally or externally (to the wider industrial and academic community), participate in conferences, publications and in the general dissemination of our work.
