  • London

Write and present Unruly EQ reports which advise clients on how to improve their creative

WANTED: We’re looking for a brilliant Insight Analyst to help us continue to lead the online video market. Our clients look to us to provide data-driven, authoritative research demonstrating online video’s value – and the role it plays within the broader media mix. You’ll support the Marketing, Sales, EQ and Insight teams, managing Unruly’s proprietary datasets as well as using third party data providers, deciphering the story that lies in the data to create compelling sales and marketing collateral and answer complex client questions.

You’ll probably be currently working at a major brand or research agency in a research or insight role, or maybe you’ll be a research superstar in an adjacent space (cinema, TV, search). Either way – you’ll be an innovative, data-driven researcher who is keen to transfer your experience into a rapidly growing tech company, where you can really take the lead and make a difference. If you’re tired of “plain digital” and feel ready to join a really cool company with a proven business model and a start-up feel, we’d love to learn what makes you Unruly!
