About Morning Consult:
Morning Consult is a global decision intelligence company changing how modern leaders make smarter, faster, better decisions. The company pairs its proprietary high-frequency data with applied artificial intelligence to better inform decisions on what people think and how they will act.
Ideally this position would be based in Washington, DC, however we are open to our other office locations (New York, NY or Chicago, IL).
The Role:
Morning Consult is searching for a Research Science Operations Coordinator to help drive the strategy of our online survey data collection and how we use that data to build technology products.

The ideal candidate is someone who thrives in a fast-paced, high-growth environment and is driven to see projects through to completion.

As one of the leaders in the market research industry, Morning Consult will collect more than 10 million survey responses across more than 40 countries over the next year. This role will have the unique opportunity to affect change at scale and play a vital role in organizing company initiatives.
