About GutCheck

At GutCheck, we pioneered agile market research to provide our clients with actionable answers and insights, globally, at the speed of their business. We believe in the power of consumer research, and we are dedicated to providing best-in-class solutions. By challenging the status quo to get to something better, we are continually evaluating new, innovative ways to take tried-and-true methods and make them more agile to best support our clients, helping them think smarter and act faster.

About the role

Due to growth of our research team, GutCheck is seeking a full-time Research Strategist (RS). The RS takes the lead on Qual & Quant projects and often works one-on-one with clients from start to finish. Typical projects can last anywhere between a few days and a few weeks, and span from product or ad testing to marketing audience activation. Many clients are in the CPG industry but we also work in tech, food service, retail, healthcare, and B2B. Project mix is approximately 50% Qual / 50% Quant, which may skew one way or the other depending upon client needs.

This is a fast-paced research role that utilizes an agile approach to traditional research methodologies.

This is an opportunity to learn and grow within a well established Research team with an innovative research company. If you want to be challenged, this may be the right role for you.

This position will report into a Research Manager based in Denver, Colorado.

An Insider's view of GutCheck

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a "no door" policy. There are no offices, so I and others can be accessible. On a proactive basis, I spend a lot of non-meeting time in the break room, so I can have a better sense of how things are going, and I can have spontaneous conversations with my colleagues. AMA sessions along with ad hoc 1 on 1s are a big part of our culture.

Additional Perks + Benefits

Everyone has a seat at the table, both in the boardroom and in our kitchen. Our close-knit culture is fostered by an open concept office space with a 360 view of upper downtown and the Rocky Mountains. Every day new friendships are formed over conversations while grabbing a Bubly in the fridge or during our run club’s weekly jaunt around town. We know people need to stay fueled physically and mentally, so our kitchen is always stocked with healthy drinks and snacks to squash any mid-afternoon hangriness. For trivia buffs, our Research team heads up a daily contest.

GutCheck celebrates the personal and professional aspects of life by treating our team as adults and letting them determine how they are most productive. Our network is completely accessible whether you chose to work remotely, stand at a desk or relax on the comfy couches in the nooks around our office. A/V conferencing access for all meetings means you can avoid the traffic and still contribute to your team from your living room, favorite coffee shop, or in the drop-off zone at your kid’s school. Cool isn’t something GutCheck strives to accomplish, it is something we have built into our Give-A-Shit culture through people who come to work and are 100% themselves.
