Market and User Research at Seesaw

As part of our continuing effort to improve our product and learn more about the people who use Seesaw, we routinely conduct various types of research activities.


From time to time, we offer paid surveys that can be completed on your own time using your computer or phone. Compensation is usually $5 to $15 as Amazon gift certificates sent out via email (depending on the survey).

Surveys are by invite-only. 



In-person usability studies are typically conducted in one of our usability labs in Portland or the SF bay area. These are usually one-off events that last from 15 minutes to 2 hours.

Some of our studies can also be conducted remotely using software such as Google Hangouts. For those studies, you can participate from almost anywhere in the world using your home or school computer (as long as you have a reasonably fast internet connection). 

If you qualify for one of our studies, we will contact you via email or phone to set up a session that works well with your schedule. During your appointment, you will then work with one of our user researchers who will ask you to try out products, provide feedback, or provide input on new product ideas.



To sign up for studies (in-person or remote), please complete our questionnaire. Participants must be at least 18 years old to complete this questionnaire.  

You may want to add our email address to your trusted email list to make sure you don’t miss our emails.

Compensation is usually $50 - $150 depending on the type of study. The type of compensation depends on the specific study, but we usually offer a choice of cash/cash equivalents or gift cards.
