RelSci, an exciting NYC-based information services startup founded by proven, successful entrepreneurs, is looking for a Research Associate to be a key member of our firm.
Who We’re Looking For
We’re looking for someone who knows how to dig into data and extract actionable insights. The ideal candidate is a self-starter with high personal motivation and attention to detail. We need your help building and improving a product that empowers our clients with targeted, actionable information about the people, organizations, and topics they care most about.
We’re looking for an analyst with excellent logical reasoning skills who can find trends in seemingly ambiguous sets of data. You should have some experience working with both quantitative and qualitative sets of data.
The person in this role will work closely with our data collection operation, based in Chennai, India, so experience with or interest in working with offshore teams is a definite plus. You should be a clear communicator and be able to break down complex projects into simple, straightforward tasks.
We’re constantly tweaking our products based on user feedback via hands-on research and other forms of testing. The most successful candidates will be comfortable in a rapidly evolving environment, and able to take initiative and assume ownership over projects. We’re looking for someone who is excited about acquiring new skills and learning new technologies.
What You’ll Be Working On
This position focuses on maintaining and improving RelSci’s core database of over 6 million people and 1.5 million organizations. In this role, you will work in close collaboration with our Chennai-based data collection operation and our product and technology teams to enhance collection technology, integrate new data sources, and identify and resolve data issues.
You will serve as the liaison between the collection operation and other areas of the firm, including technology and sales. As appropriate and desired, you may participate in other projects involving product design, operations management, and/or content development.
Your decisions directly impact what we present to our customers, so we’re looking for someone passionate about the quality of their own work.
