Job Description

Our Story

Our team in Chicago is a small but mighty powerhouse of great talent. You will report directly to the VP of Engineering and create innovative products with a team of highly talented software engineers. We are customer-obsessed and provide opportunities to interact with our customers or just be a fly on the wall and listen to their feedback. We celebrate innovation and our stack is continually evolving. For example we are transitioning our deployment model to Kubernetes to allow us to scale our services.

We are pushing the boundaries of where market research can go and have started layering in data science and machine learning. This role requires creativity, agility, active problem-solving skills, and a fun personality (life is too short to take ourselves too seriously).
