We’re a boutique brand strategy agency looking for a Full Time Market & Culture Researcher to serve our portfolio of clients at Concept Bureau. As a Market & Culture Researcher in our group, you will be responsible for extensive research, ideation, and creation of brand strategy deliverables in close collaboration with the team and the client. You will be trained in our research-based frameworks and systems, but we also expect you to be an integral part of helping us improve and expand our approach, which is something we are always doing. More than just building brands, our work is to push forward the very practice of brand building for our clients and wider audience – and that starts with deeply perceptive intelligence that can’t be seen on the surface of a space.  

The right person for this role will be able to take large amounts of data, find compelling patterns, and make strong arguments for the direction that a market, consumer segment, or culture is headed. This means being able to find information in the usual places as well as places that others wouldn’t think to look, and having a strong instinct for pulling on threads that are invisible to the rest of us.

We’re looking for preferably an LA-based team member (although we are open to non-LA based) who will work remote but is still available for in-person team meetings in the future. We offer full benefits and a collaborative team environment. 

(*) Please note we go through every application so be sure to read this post carefully and include a cover letter that helps us understand how your experience relates to our needs below. If you have any links to previous work, writing/ thinking, side projects or examples of brand strategy projects, please include those as well.
