The Role        

The CX Research Operations Specialist will support client teams through participant recruiting, research logistics, and providing strategic assets as needed to facilitate a seamless research experience.

Each 12-week incubation is focused on helping project teams define a product concept, vision, and roadmap that global enterprises can build a business around. The CX Research Operations Specialist provides access to the target customers so the client team can keep the customer in the center throughout the incubation process.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
