Hiring: Researchers and Senior Researchers

Updated: Sep 3, 2019

This is your opportunity to join a company that is at the cutting edge of cultural anthropology, big data, and AI. We are pioneers in the field of technology-enabled ethnography at big data scale. We call it, big data ethnography and it powers front-end innovation across the Fortune 1000. We are currently hiring three researchers to support our growing client base.

A typical day in this role would involve studying the culture of anything and everything - from plant-based proteins and sustainable packaging in food, to the future of women's sexual health (and its impact on the consumer packaged goods industry). Our clients make investments to future-proof their business using the results of our research.

General Responsibilities will include:

  1. Mastering and becoming a champion of the MotivBase platform and methodology.

  2. Working with other researchers to deliver completed analyses and reports using MotivBase.

  3. Over time, this role may be client-facing. That is, if you have the aptitude for it, you could be presenting research (typically over video conference) and interfacing with the client through the process - from project briefing through to delivery.


You're the right candidate if:

  1. You're a quick study and feel comfortable with well established concepts in the field cultural anthropology or cultural sociology.

  2. You're a good writer.

  3. You have an eye for detail and can be obsessive about quality control.

  4. You're comfortable with technology - apps for presentations, document creation, conference calls etc.

  5. You like to work fast, efficiently, and in an environment that is high energy, but also can be high pressure. 

  6. You keep up to date on developments in the fields of social sciences and consumer culture in general.


To be considered, you need to be a Ph.D. candidate or graduate in fields such as anthropology, political science, sociology, or history.


Ph.D. dropouts are welcome. Even encouraged.
