About Us:

YipitData is the leading market research firm for the disruptive economy and recently raised $475M from The Carlyle Group at a valuation of over $1B.

We analyze billions of data points every day to provide accurate, detailed insights on ridesharing, e-commerce marketplaces, payments and more. Our on-demand insights team uses proprietary technology to identify, license, clean and analyze the data many of the world’s largest investment funds and corporations depend on.

We are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company with offices located in NYC (where we are based in), Hong Kong, and Shanghai, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and The Carlyle Group with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and transparency.

About The Role:

We are expanding our research team by hiring an Equity Research Specialist (official title Research Specialist) to help produce valuable, data-driven insights for our rapidly growing institutional client base. This is a fantastic opportunity to build a strong technical & entrepreneurial skill set while positioning yourself as an expert at the forefront of the future of investment research. 

You could be a good fit if your background includes equity research, investing, management consulting, or you have experience utilizing data to understand and communicate business trends. Recent grads with strong analytical skills and capital markets interest are encouraged to apply. We are also open to considering candidates with greater years of experience for more senior level roles. 

This is a remote-friendly opportunity that can sit in NYC (where our headquarter is located), one of our office hubs (Austin, Miami, Denver, Mountain View, or Seattle), or anywhere else in the US. However, depending upon where the remote work is performed, income could be subject to New York State tax withholding. Please note that we pay NYC-based salaries for US roles regardless of where employees choose to work.

  • Investing: Become a trusted and reliable resource for our clients and work with them to identify their key unanswered questions. You'll gain insight into how investors think about companies and the most important questions they need to answer to make investment decisions
  • Alternative Data Landscape: Build expertise in a fast growing sector of the data industry at the largest company in the space. Become an expert on key datasets available to investors.

You're likely to succeed if you have:
