Company Description:
Bounce Insights is a consumer research platform that specialises in delivering fast, agile and robust quantitative research to brands across the world. We offer a unique blend of research consultancy, data and technology to support brands in their decision-making by providing real-time access to consumer data and insights.

We work primarily with brands in the CPG/FMCG & Retail spaces such as Diageo, Coca-Cola & Tesco, but have also worked with a range of media and advertising agencies as well as financial services, telecommunications and e-commerce companies to assist them with their consumer research needs.

We are growing very rapidly, and have positions for people who are willing to learn fast, take on very challenging work and manage high-responsibility tasks early on. New team members are likely to be prime drivers of our success and directly attribute their effort to the growth of our company. We believe that early team members should have ownership in the company they build, and therefore offer stock options as part of their compensation packages.
