YipitData is experiencing an exciting—and exponential!—growth period. We are on our way to achieving our goal of becoming the #1 global data-led investment & market research provider that has a fantastic culture of support and mentorship.

As a new talent development initiative, YipitData is launching its first-ever internship program for our Research team. Join us for an inaugural internship class as we help shape a new generation of data-minded investment research professionals!

The Research Specialist Internship Program will start in June, 2022. We’re looking to hire top performers for full-time offers in 2023.

As a member of our team, you’ll gain hands-on experience in:

  • Programming & Analytics: Learn SQL, Databricks, and other big data analysis tools. Collaborate with our data team to build a deep understanding of our datasets and proprietary methodologies
  • Data-Led Research: Work closely with experienced research analysts to understand, create, and communicate valuable insights covering large, disruptive industries using our datasets
  • Investing: Become a trusted and reliable resource for our clients and work with them to identify their key unanswered questions. You'll learn 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

This is a fantastic opportunity to build a strong technical & entrepreneurial skill set. It will position you for a career pioneering the future of investment research.

Additionally, this is a remote-friendly opportunity; candidates are welcome to come to NYC for the program (where our headquarter is located), or participate remotely from anywhere in the US.

    • A 10-week PAID internship starting with a multi-week training program that includes:
