Qualifications

The ideal candidate will possess the following skills: 

  • Insatiably curious: Our research team is a group of lifelong learners, always asking questions. We are looking for someone that loves to get to the bottom of things, seeks to find out how and why things work the way they do, and exhibits a general passion for learning. 

  • Articulate: Companies and executives rely on our research to make decisions. You should be able to articulate ideas clearly in writing and in person, and synthesize key, relevant points from a mountain of noisy data. You can explain abstract ideas in a clear and simple way. 

  • Critical thinker: You can separate fact from fiction, and know how to spot marketing fluff a mile away. Even though you may not be an economics major, you possess analytical skills and can spot trends in data. 

  • Results-oriented: You are the kind of person that does what you say you are going to do, and can manage projects under a deadline. People rely on you to get things done. 

  • Detail-oriented: You care about the details. You take the time to make sure things are not just done, but done right. 

  • Team player: You are enjoyable to be around, and are professional and conscientious towards your co-workers and clients. We work in a very tight-knit and highly collaborative environment, and work hard to foster a culture of teamwork, friendliness, and collaborative success. 

  • Flexible: As a fast-growing startup, priorities can and do change rapidly, and the workload can vary significantly. We are looking for someone that thrives in this kind of environment and knows when to ask permission and when to take independent action. 

  • Growth mindset: In this role, you have the opportunity to write your own career path, and we will expect you to contribute meaningfully to the overall strategic thinking and growth of the organization. We are growing, but there are always areas of opportunity or places we could be better creating value.
