BerlandTeam is a new kind of insights and strategy firm. We Decode Data into Momentum™ for individuals, organizations and movements. This means, for each client in our diverse portfolio (think Estee Lauder Companies, Airbnb, WeWork, Brooklyn Brewery, the NHL), we use wide-ranging data sources to diagnose what’s most in the way of our clients’ ambition and then advise them on how to move forward.
We’re a tight-knit group that’s sharp, a little quirky and extremely collaborative. And we’re big fans of lunch. Seriously. We love a good lunch.
We’re actively looking to recruit an Associate with 1-3 years of experience who, among other things, can support the team in all aspects of client work -- from data collection and analysis to identifying insights and shaping a compelling story grounded in what we learned. This position, based in New York City, requires a strong interest in digital, analytics, secondary research, and quantitative and qualitative research, a natural curiosity, an eagerness to dive into the deep end, and a hunger to learn and grow while having a blast. Expect to learn a lot about cool companies, new products, and the latest in digital, analytics, research and strategy.
