There will be a huge transformation and you could be joining part of a brand-new research department - of course product people etc do research, but idea is to have a specialist team to do continuous research. You will have two sides to your role because you'll be the first most senior person in this team so you will be able to bring your ideas in and support the junior researcher as a starting point.
