I think it's because the ramp is not long enough to get both of your wheels on it at the same time. It bucks your back wheel up higher than your front, which makes it feel abrupt.
One easy way to correct this will be to add a foot or more of dirt under the entire ramp, and feather it out to the bottom of your runway, thus making the transition much longer, like 4-8 feet. It will feel much smoother. Also adding more flat before the jump will help too

Excellent design for a step-up box jump. Nice long landing, with rounded corner.
