  • Consult on ad hoc survey requests, including advising on survey best practices and tools with partners.
  • Partner with Data Engineers to design, build, and maintain data pipelines from our survey platforms to our data warehouse.
  • Surface survey data in intuitive dashboards for several audiences.
