    • Provide strong technical and research based knowledge of dscout during demos and act as a dscout expert to train and educate clients on functionality and methodology

    • Travel occasionally for onsite client visits where you will train and share best practices, as well as gather feedback to bring directly back to our Product team
    • Opportunity to move into managing 1-3 (maybe more) Research Advisors — prioritizing workload, coaching on work performance and professional growth
    • Act as a customer advocate by sharing feedback internally to continuously improve dscout’s product offerings.
    • Partner with Marketing to develop collateral and content needed during the Presale process and engage in thought leadership and marketing related efforts as needed

    • 3+ years in a customer-facing role within a SaaS company ; preferably as a Solutions Consultant or Solutions Engineer
    • 3+ years in a client-facing role leading research initiatives
    • A passion for research, an innate curiosity about how and why people behave the way they do, and a desire to better understand complex behavioral problems and find solutions to those problems
    • Excellent analytical, problem solving skills, and communication skills, both oral and written. Naturally able to strike a balance between friendly and professional in all communications
    • BA/BS degree in business, anthropology, sociology, market research, design research, HCI related field, or equivalent work experience
    • Experience using Microsoft Office Suite and Google Suite products

What is nice to have (let’s call them Additional Skills):

    • A confident cross-functional team player: working to keep people from multiple disciplines aligned toward the same goal
