Differentology are a new breed of research agency with offices in central London and Newcastle. We specialise in cutting edge media research, combining insight, strategy, technology and award winning creativity (focusing on beautiful data visualisations, infographics and video as an insight output). We work with the likes of Sky, Channel 4, The Times, NME, Global Radio, MTV, Disney and Channel 5 on domestic and global ad-hoc insight studies. Business is booming and we’re eager to bring on board an experienced senior quant researcher to join a fast paced, dynamic and growing insight team, based either in London or Newcastle.

You’ll be working with us to:
Set up and manage multiple projects, with complex (and often new) digital methodologies (IRT, facial coding, passive data collection etc.)
Design projects, sample frames and questionnaires
Work collaboratively; brainstorm and analyse with other team members
Write debriefs; avoid reportage style research, instead writing imaginative and insightful debriefs
Handle both supplier and client relationships

We’re looking for:
A can do attitude – a track record of getting involved and getting things done. Someone ambitious who is up for helping to build a business and a brand
A commercial focus on the business relevance of what you do
Confidence and clarity in the way you communicate and express ideas
Curiosity, numeracy, and a strong desire to know and understand more
The ability to relate to others with passion, enthusiasm, fun and humour
Enjoy challenging and problem solving, constantly looking for new and better ways to do things

Skills and Experience
2+ years as a quantitative researcher
Strong analytical skills and a tenacious attention to detail and accuracy
Questionnaire design experience and skills. Any knowledge of advance research design methods (segmentation, conjoint etc.) would be an advantage
Excellent communication and influencing skills
Proven project management and time management skills – highly organised with the ability to work under pressure
A passion for thinking beyond the obvious, both laterally and creatively
Consistently exceeding internal and external expectations
Extracting insights from complex research and identifying implications for brands
Ability to work across teams and geographies
Having worked with new and innovative quant methodologies is a bonus
