Who we are:

At Wunderman Thompson we exist to inspire growth for ambitious brands. Part creative agency, part consultancy and part technology company, our experts provide end-to-end capabilities at a global scale to deliver inspiration across the entire brand and customer experience.

We are 20,000 strong in 90 markets around the world; our people bring together creative storytelling, diverse perspectives, inclusive thinking, and highly specialized vertical capabilities to drive growth for our clients. We offer deep expertise across the entire customer journey, including communications, commerce, consultancy, CRM, CX, data, production, and technology.

Who we are looking for:

SONAR® is Wunderman Thompson’s research consultancy. We work in a fast paced, creatively driven, and fun environment and are seeking someone who is passionate and excited about the work we do, the ideas we generate and the things we create.

What you’ll do: 

The WT Quantitative Research Analyst will work within our SONAR® research consultancy supporting Wunderman Thompson and our clients globally with research, insights, and data needs, including identifying ideal vendor partners, designing and conducting primary quantitative research, accessing third-party databases (e.g., MRI, BAV, Audience Origin, etc.) for relevant insights, and presenting insight findings. The position will be supported by the other members of our research team at Wunderman Thompson.

Who you are:

Strong client interface, project management, data collection, data analysis, writing, and presentation skills are essential. Previous experience with a research supplier is highly relevant.

What you’ll need: 

  • 2-4 years of custom quantitative market research experience
  • Method design, survey design, data analysis, report writing, and presenting are the superpowers you’re most proud of
  • You sheepishly admit that you enjoy Excel and PowerPoint as much as Reddit and Instagram
  • Prior experience with Decipher (a.k.a. Forsta Surveys) or Qualtrics survey platform and/or data tabulation packages are huge plusses
  • You have a tendency to ask “what if…” a lot
  • You can coordinate with third-party data collection vendors, sample vendors, and qualitative facilities while juggling a cell phone, a face mask, and a can of Red Bull
  • You’re equally comfortable working closely with clients and internal staff
  • Your friends and colleagues are jealous of your analytic, writing, and communication skills
  • Servicing clients is kind of second nature to you
  • You have a deep interest in advertising and marketing
  • You have a good sense of humor
  • You don’t take yourself too seriously
  • Whatever comes next is what you’re most excited about
  • You have interesting or unusual interests away from work

What we offer: 

  • Passionate, driven people | We champion a culture of people that do extraordinary work.
  • Consciously cultivated culture | We aim to embody the behaviors to build an inclusive community that is in it together, bringing both positivity and active listening into the workplace as we simultaneously strive to empower creative bravery.
  • Competitive benefits | What we offer full time hires ranges from the full spectrum of group health coverage options (medical, dental, vision) to a generous 401k match (100% dollar-for-dollar match, up to 5% of salary contribution), and a variety of paid time off offerings that reflect our investment in all aspects of your overall life balance and wellness.
  • Growth-minded opportunities | We aim to nurture a culture of real-time feedback, growth-oriented mindset, and plenty of training opportunities through Wunderman Thompson and WPP, so you can continue to grow personally and professionally.
