Kids Research Apprentice

posted on December 04, 2016

HERE’S A RIDDLE FOR YOU: What’s more fun than having fun with kids, testing new toys, exploring their favorite TV and movie characters, and learning about the future of playtime? If you answered, “meh, that actually sounds kind of boring,” you can stop reading here. But if you answered, “Nothing else – that’s what I wish I could do all day!” then we’d like to talk with you! Perhaps Insight Strategy Group is the place for you and your wildly smart imagination.

We’re looking for someone who won’t flinch at getting down on the play mat and connecting with kids at their level. And then, more importantly, standing up, taking a step back, and reflecting on what their play patterns and preferences could mean to those creating content, products, and business strategies for them.

Our fast paced, intellectually challenging, and dynamic work environment will require that you actively juggle, think, and do new things all the time. We’re looking for someone who’s up for the challenge of doing it all while being a positive, upbeat, and creative voice within our team.

• Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Child Development, Developmental Psych, Educational Media, Branding/Marketing, or a related field
