  • Understand product requirements and present multiple paths forward.
  • Collaborate with project stakeholders across the organization.

Here at dscout, we are a team of passionate research, sales, technical, marketing, design, success, and operations professionals. We are driven by the power of research—how in-context insights from real people can build products and services that are more people-centric. We value learning, sharing, and building. We deeply value being a diverse and inclusive team and company, and we are looking for team members who align with that belief. We are proud of what dscout is today and we are excited to build our future with you.

  • A strong compensation package with a bonus structure. Your success is tied to company success. We are all in this together.
  • An incredible set of core benefits as well as a 401k with match, solid PTO policy, and generous company holidays. We are committed to helping build your future.
  • Exposure to the inner workings of a growing company. And open, transparent communication within our team. You will know what is happening and why it matters.
  • An education stipend. Keep learning and sharpening your skills.
