If you’re interested in research or business, and love meeting and working with intelligent people, this role is a good fit for you.
On a daily basis, your responsibilities will include doing deep research on companies and industry landscapes, learning the growth and trajectory of our clients and other relevant companies, reviewing and ranking candidate profiles, and crafting client materials.
We all love what we do, hang out together, work long hours, and feel the gravity of partnering with the most exciting and disruptive companies in the world.
