Job Description – Estimating & Vendor Relations Associate

 

The opportunity: What happens when a vibrant young startup experiences a rapid growth phase? You have the opportunity to be part of an exciting business that is revolutionizing the Market Research industry. If you want to learn and grow fast, pushing yourself more than any “boss” and be part of a team that will fully support you, this is for you.

About Us: Brands need insights that lead to great ideas. We help our clients turn business questions into actionable insights. Our team of super likeable humans is dedicated to research innovation and maintains a nimble, and disruptive startup mindset.

This is an entry-level position with unlimited growth potential. Most of the people who started out in this role moved up quickly. This position is ideal for someone who wants to get started in the Market Research industry and learn how to work in a fast-paced team environment. Your job will be to analyze the needs of our projects, and provide pricing. You won’t get bored…or get to be lazy.

Responsibilities:

  • Determine project feasibility and provide costs
  • Work under (sometimes unreasonable) deadlines
  • Remain organized in the face of chaos
  • Track source performance – be aware of what works and what doesn’t
  • Work to improve pricing accuracy and cost efficiency
  • Coordinate with staff and our sample partners to identify the best sources for each bid
  • Support sales staff with any needs related to sales and revenue growth
  • Be a mind reader (OK not really, but it does help!)
  • Be unflappably cheerful in the face of (sometimes) absurd demands

Required Education, Experience and Skills:

  • Learn quickly and be a self-starter
  • Have an interest in learning our business
  • Exceptional communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Technically inclined with high proficiency in Microsoft Excel
  • Proven problem solving and issue resolution skills
  • Above average mathematical skills
  • Demonstrated skills in multitasking, time management & organization
  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • An enthusiastic ‘can-do’ attitude
  • Some data processing experience e.g. data cleaning and running counts/basic statistical knowledge/familiarity with the word ‘stats’ will also be beneficial
  • Any Market Research experience is beneficial but not essential
  • Be amazing. Really, we don’t have the time or budget for anything less than someone that is not fanatical about quality and putting 100% into everything they do. We need someone that thrives on finding solutions and rising to the next level.

Why you will not like it here (you’ll love it!): We don’t want to brag, but working here is awesome! And it’s because of people just like you. If you don’t feel that you make our place even more awesome with your creativity, humor, and hard work, no worries, but don’t apply. If YOU can raise the average by being here, join us and we will treat you like the rock star you are – every day.
