About YPulse

YPulse is a leading youth market research company, helping brands like Spotify, BuzzFeed, Vans, and many more understand the next generations of consumers-and how to reach them. We research and engage Gen Z and Millennials in innovative ways every day, and infuse our editorial content with those insights. Our newsletters, insight articles, behavioral and trend reports are vital tools that keep major brands informed.

The YPulse team is a creative, hardworking group of researchers, writers, and strategists, constantly collaborating on projects and creatively working to deliver insightful and unique content. (Oh, and we’ve got unlimited vacation, too.) We’re excited to find a self-starting, passionate person to join our team!

Job Description

The Content Research Coordinator will contribute directly to the creation of YPulse’s content, specifically the behavioral and trend reports. You should have a love of all aspects of market research (questionnaire development, data analysis, report creation, and storytelling) and avid interest in youth culture. You will help YPulse tell the story of what’s happening within youth culture to our thousands of readers and high-profile clients. The Content Research Coordinator is:

  • A Thought Leader: Our clients rely on YPulse to know what is happening now and what’s to come in Gen Z and Millennials’ lives. You are forward thinking, on top of trends, and understand what clients need to know-
    and why.
  • Organized: YPulse publishes reports every week. It is important you are organized and stay on top of all moving parts, from questionnaire development to report analysis, including: crosstabulation, data analysis and narrative writing.
  • A Dynamic Storyteller: Impactful storytelling is at the heart of what we do. You will translate data into visual, insights-driven stories that help clients understand young consumers: what is happening in their lives, how they are behaving, and their wants / needs as they
    grow older.
  • Experienced in Research Design: Not only do you know how to write an insightful questionnaire based on a general concept, but you know how to interpret the results to tell an impactful story to clients.
  • A Multifunctional Team Player: YPulse prioritizes cross-functional, collaborative work. One second you may be talking to the operations team to get a survey into the field, and the next you are in an all-team brainstorming session to discuss the next trend.
