Who: ReD Associates is an innovation and strategy consultancy. The anthropologists, sociologists, economists, journalists, and designers who make up ReD employ the methods of social science to study human behavior. Our teams in Copenhagen and New York work together to develop deep insights into how and why consumers make decisions. We use these insights both to see the world in more compassionate and complex ways - and to identify new opportunities for our clients.
What: We have a unique opportunity for students or freelancers to gain a window into our work through a part-time paid position.
We are seeking individuals with a background in ethnology, anthropology, sociology or political science for temporary employment in our downtown New York office. The work will consist of processing and tagging ethnographic data in ATLAS.ti, a data analysis tool. You will be working in a small team, collaborating with our New York and Copenhagen office, for one of our top clients on a major foundational study.
The work requires an understanding of ethnographic praxis and analysis, and reasonable computer skills. The work will require listening to some conversations and annotating them in English and fluency is a requirement. We are also seeking one native Mandarin speaker who is also fluent in English. Previous experience with ATLAS.ti is not a requirement. We will provide a thorough introduction to and assistance with the software.
When: The work will start Monday, March 26 and would extend until April 6, 2018. You will also need to be available for a training session on Friday March 23 at 10:00AM – 12:00PM.
We are looking for people who are flexible, reliable, and able to work significant hours during this period. We will offer a wage of $20 per hour, a nice lunch and a wonderful working environment. If you are interested or have questions regarding the interim position, please send a short bio, résumé, and hours of availability as soon as possible to:
