Job Description: Are you obsessed with Gen Z culture? Are you obsessed with finding solutions and growing networks? Do you enjoy asking hard-hitting questions and analyzing data? Do you find yourself thinking about consumer insights and reading research for fun? Are you a natural project and people manager? Does this role sound like a crazy mash-up of things?

JUV’s research arm is facilitated through The Receipt (because Gen Z always has the receipts ready), a network of 7,500+ Gen Zers, who we send surveys to and conduct interviews with in order to create research reports for our Fortune 500 clients. We are growing this department and network, and are looking for someone who can simultaneously grow our network of Gen Zers across the US and world, while also overseeing a robust research practice guided by client needs and scopes. This person needs to build our research capabilities for the long-term while managing a successful client-facing operation in the short and medium term. Fundamentally, this role requires someone who has strong data management skills (qual and quant), experience working with consumer insights, a startup mindset, technical marketing & growth hacking prowess, and is ready to strategically reshape our research products and services.

This role requires someone who is a well-rounded thinker who has the technical chops to build subscriber lists, the measured diligence to oversee the development of consumer insight reports, and a natural ability to develop and manage team members.
