Lead Analyst: Startup & New Market Insights

New York, NY /
Research & Insights /
Radicle is an insights business that provides the world’s leading companies – companies like P&G, Unilever, Silicon Valley Bank, Fidelity, LEGO, Estée Lauder, and more – with tools and proprietary intelligence to understand new markets and make better decisions across partnership, business and product incubation, investment, acquisition, and new market intelligence.  We offer a full suite of research products — including visual landscapes, sector deep-dive reports, and more — that help our customers turn theses into actionable opportunities.

We believe that helping the world’s biggest companies figure out the future is a big opportunity. We are growing 2.5x year-over-year. Radicle was started by partners at Prehype, an incubator that has helped launch companies like BarkBox, Managed By Q, Ro, Main Street, and LemonTree

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.

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.

We’re a lean team that moves quickly and embraces new challenges. 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.  

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