MarketCast Director, Custom Research in New York, New York

Marketing Fandom At MarketCast, we believe in the power of fandom. Whether you’re a gaming company creating your next must-play game, a studio developing the next blockbuster, a streamer changing the game, or a beverage brand seeking to disrupt the grocery aisle, we deliver data-driven research and insights to move the needle. As a truly full-service agency – research, insights, tracking, social, data science and more – we are perfectly positioned to solve unique (and fascinating) business challenges. We’re looking for passionate, curious, hungry people to join the team and help change the world – one research question at a time. #FandomIsOurJam We’re looking for: • Seasoned Quant practitioners: folks who are great in all areas of quant practice from survey design to data analysis, able to tell the story with actionable outcomes. (Also, if you know how to do a segmentation or a conjoint, we’re going to be super pumped). • Are you a true Qual/Quant hybrid? Awesome – don't be shy, tell us all about focus groups and survey design. • Someone who has started to master the art of managing an insights project from start to finish. • Folks who can see data and tell a story, who know how to find actionable insights and know how to move beyond a basic reportage approach. • Someone able to jump in on every stage of the research / insights process – from soup to nuts! • A strong eye for detail – sweating the small stuff is as important as the big stuff. • Practitioners who love the work, and want to build client relationships. • Team players – we are stronger together – we like to work in groups. • Creative thinkers – if you come bursting with ideas and can see patterns in data, we’re excited. • Curious minds, especially when it comes to people and what makes them tick. • Strong communicators – written and verbal. Being able to find the right words to articulate the question, the story, and everything in between well, is a big deal for us. It’ll be helpful if you have: • At least 7-10 years of experience in custom / ad hoc research – we dig templated projects, love tracking, but in this group, we're all about the unique business questions, so previous experience is very appealing. • At least a Bachelor’s degree in the Social Sciences, Economics, Business, Marketing, Statistics or related fields. More than a Bachelor’s degree is great too! Benefits and Perks: • Medical, Dental, Vision • 401(k) Company Match • Freedom Leave • Health & Wellness Events & Benefits • Professional & Personal Growth & Learning Opportunities • And, more.. Our Purpose: Fandom connects people with shared passions and builds communities around them. It offers them space to express their joy and love, whether that’s for superheroes, sports teams, or even small batch whiskeys. At MarketCast, we believe in the power of fandom. It’s as important for brands as it is for action heroes and we do fandom research, data science and analytics better than anyone on the planet. This obsessive focus on fans helps the world’s top creators, media platforms, and sports leagues transform followers into fanatics and investments into impact. Our Core Values: Curiosity Makes Us Tick Our love of learning manifests in everything we do - from the surveys we field and the datasets we analyze to the technology we develop. Where others pause, we push forward, uncovering hidden meaning and answers. Always learning, always looking for more. We Celebrate Wins Whether its wowing clients with research or solving everyday challenges, we pause to honor great work and everyone who plays a role in it. We acknowledge and recognize great work and hustle that helps deliver the very best outcomes. Trust is Always Trending Trust means everything to us. It’s lending a hand when deadlines loom, always delivering on the promises we make, and calling out behavior that harms our culture. And our client’s trust is what makes all this possible, something we never take for granted. We Roll with Change We embrace change as an opportunity to learn, grow, and further develop. We do this by challenging our biases and rethinking how things have always been done in the past. This fresh, open-minded approach keeps us agile, innovating, and adapting in the face of uncertainty. Diversity is Our Superpower Our differences make us stronger. As researchers and data scientists, we have a responsibility to reflect the diverse audiences and communities all around us. Understanding people, opinions and life experiences fuels our insights and deepens our perspectives. At MarketCast, we don't just accept difference - we embrace it, support it, and thrive on it for the benefit of our global culture and success.
