  • Monitor the scout panel for quality, demographics and activity level.
  • Process scout payments and assist with project billing.


  • 1-3 years experience in research, customer support, or account management
  • Genuinely interested in market research and technology, and curious about how things work
  • Passionate about understanding people and cultures, and working across country borders
  • Highly organized and process-oriented with great attention to detail
  • Hard-working and willing to go the extra mile for your teammates, our clients and our scouts
  • Naturally able to strike a balance between friendly and professional in written and verbal communications
  • Multi-lingual in English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin and/or Korean a strong plus
