Cronin is looking for a dynamic, innovative researcher with a robust quantitative background to progress our research capabilities forward.
We are looking for someone who is able to look at the data from our research and find key insights, work with the team to establish report structure and select the findings we surface to our clients, and who is able to craft detailed, polished reports in collaboration with our practice lead and our qualitative team members. This person must be able to work with analysts to determine the best solution to the data analysis, clearly and succinctly explain the thinking behind the analysis, and connect the dots from the data to our clients’ business in a way that both showcases the foundational data insights as well as provides new strategic directions to our internal and client teams.
Additionally, there is a research operations component to this role. This person would need to be able to manage both small- and large-scale research efforts (e.g., short online surveys as well as larger online or phone surveys of nationally representative sample sizes), including having and maintaining relationships with service providers, assisting the project management team in establishing timelines, and reviewing bids.
Candidates will be expected to present work samples that demonstrate proficiency and skill in report writing, communications and storytelling, as well as quantitative analysis. Please be prepared to walk us through several projects, your role in those projects, and what the results were.
This is a full-time position in Glastonbury, CT. Two full days in office are required, but up to three work-from-home days per week can be supported, with the expectation that the team member will be in regular communication and available for video conferences as necessary.
You’re talented enough to work at any agency in New York or Boston (or anywhere else for that matter). Why would you choose a place smack dab between both?
Because you can.
Because you can do great work for national brands. Because you can enjoy a culture that embraces creativity, technology and innovation and doesn’t tolerate dogma or bullies. Because you can make a difference at a fiercely independent agency that’s not just omni-channel, but omni-truthful.
We’re Cronin. Mid-sized and mighty. And our goal is to create meaningful connections using creativity, media and innovation to inspire others.
You’re a builder and an innovator with a desire to bring people together through your mastery of words and storytelling, and with an ability to write in diverse copy styles across a range of assignments. You’re passionate, ego-less, curious and always hustling. Agency life suits you and your positive energy is infectious to your teammates.
You are an entrepreneurial spirit at heart who enjoys being challenged and solving problems. Your writing speaks for itself and you’ve been revered, valued and appreciated everywhere you’ve plied your craft. You’re hands-on and strategic with a proven track record.
