Full-time
ABOUT US
Radicle is a new market insights company that helps the world’s leading companies make faster, better informed, and more confident investments in the future. We have a set of targeted products, powered by our growing network of professionals with startup and hyper-growth experience, that can help you surface critical insights, identify actionable opportunities, and now hire transformational talent.

We believe that while the explosion in startup and venture capital funding over the past ten years has created an uncertain future, it’s also created opportunity: a deep pool of millions of people whose startup and hypergrowth experiences can help you navigate the future.

Radicle has designed a set of products that engage this global talent network to help you make faster, better informed, and more confident investments in the future – whether launching new products and services, deciding what markets to enter (and how), partnering with the right startups, or hiring transformational talent.
 
We are partners to many of the world's leading companies, including Nestlé, SVB, P&G, Diageo, IKEA, Clorox, Estée Lauder, and many others.

We believe there is a huge opportunity in helping the world’s biggest companies figure out the future and we are looking for smart, humble, curious people to help us build the company that captures this opportunity.

Radicle was started by partners at Prehype, an incubator that has helped launch companies like BarkBox, Ro, Managed By Q, Main Street, and LemonTree.

WHAT YOU'll DO

As Lead Analyst, you’ll lead the production and delivery of our research products from statement of work to final presentation. You’ll manage multiple inputs in the research production process, including Research Analysts. You’ll be responsible for getting up to speed on a partner challenge and analyzing a startup sector through top-down perspectives, consumer surveys, and conversations with founders and investors. Ultimately, your analysis will identify and present specific solutions that are best suited for a partner challenge. 

As we continue to scale, you’ll play a critical role in growing the business by identifying new revenue opportunities and iterating on our research process. We believe each team member has valuable insights to offer and expect that you’ll contribute to the direction and future of our products.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

Someone who will bring a multifaceted skill set to the team: this person is equally capable of synthesizing research and managing/executing in an operational function that contributes to our growth.

OUR CULTURE

We’re looking for people who are passionate about learning and figuring out answers to difficult questions—each day poses an opportunity to think critically about business, markets, and the future. Several employees are former startup founders and many more employees have aspirations to be a founder one day.

If you’re looking to build a career in startups, ventures, or innovation, we’d love to help you accomplish this.
