Job Description

 

About the Role 

The Senior Research Analyst uses research to provide actionable insights that turn their clients into heroes within their organizations.  As a Senior Research Analyst, you will be one of their hero-makers -- an enthusiastic, intellectually curious analyst who provides and applies tech industry expertise to a wide variety of technology clients.  In this role, you will be the lead researcher on the team servicing a tech giant.

In a typical day, you’ll handle the design, analysis, and reporting for a mix of qualitative and quantitative projects for technology clients, and will serve as an expert on the application of survey and non-survey data to solve client business problems.  You will also excel at thinking on your feet to thrive in a fast-paced environment focused on delivering the mix of speed, quality, and value that our clients desire.  If you’re interested in making heroes and working in a cutting-edge, agile research environment, then this is the role for you. 

This position will report to a manager based in Denver, Colorado, but you can also be located in New York City or Chicago if need be (also open to San Francisco).

  • Demonstrate audience expertise by linking pre-launch audience insights to recommended marketing actions 
  • Client Management and Customer Satisfaction 
  • Maintain a maniacal focus on research quality, speed, and relationship building while working on projects for some of their biggest accounts 
  • Proactively engage with clients to ensure a positive experience and maximize the value and benefit of the product and services provided 
  • Serve as an expert in linking our strategic and tactical solutions to best meet client needs 
  • Support our Sales and Client Service teams working with tech clients as a client-facing technical expert

  • MUST have 5+ years of experience in a research, marketing, or branding role focused on the technology industry 
  • A strong understanding of issues affecting the tech industry and the ability to apply this understanding to make insights actionable.   
  • Deep understanding of consumer decision making and the ability to translate this understanding into actionable business recommendations 
  • Ability to see patterns in data – survey and non-survey -- and to connect those patterns to consumer behavior
