  • Managing, mentoring, and inspiring a team of marketing researchers (and eventually managers) as they hone their craft and engage in rigorous research
  • Providing guidance on programs of research and/or individual studies, and setting expectations for quality and impact
  • Accelerating team efficiency by improving processes and workflows with the research team and cross-functional teams
  • Working closely with Behavioral Insights and User Experience Research leadership

Some things we consider critical for this role:

  • 5-8 years of experience managing marketing research teams that include senior researchers and managers

  • Experience recruiting, hiring, and retaining top research talent
  • Effectiveness in championing, growing, and upskilling researchers; demonstrated record of getting reports promoted
  • Excellent interpersonal, collaboration, and communication skills, as well as keen attention to detail
  • A high degree of self-awareness
  • Ability to think big and understand complex problems, and to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic startup environment

Feeling ready to give 100% to democratizing finance for all? We’d love to have you apply, even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting.
