Customer insights are critical to building successful products and services. However, finding and interviewing the right people to uncover those insights is a time-consuming, expensive process that often results in researcher frustration.

Respondent is building a new category marketplace that connects researchers with high-quality participants. By reducing research timelines from 4-6 weeks to days and shrinking costs by 90%+, we make business-changing insights available to researchers of all types -- from in-house research teams at IBM and Microsoft to startup founders hunting for product-market fit.

    • You will own our content marketing strategy.
    • You will prioritize and execute on the content roadmap for both our researcher and participant audiences across various forms of content.
    • You will create content yourself but also grow and manage a team of writers and creators.
    • You will own and manage our editorial calendar for all content efforts.
