Social Intelligence & Insights Analyst

As an Analyst, you identify qualitative and quantitative social intelligence insights that matter to our clients. Our clients are executives, leaders, and practitioners on college campuses and associations who often work in marketing, communications, admissions or enrollment management, advancement or alumni relations. Campus Sonar helps them modernize their strategies, champion innovation, and advocate for change on campus using data and higher ed expertise.

Your role as an Analyst focuses on assessing social intelligence that directly helps clients answer questions, progress on their goals, and make decisions effectively for their roles on campus. You’re supported in doing this by your closest internal partner, the Strategist, who sets the vision for each client’s experience and how the Campus Sonar team will help them move toward desired outcomes. Analysts are expected to work collaboratively with their strategists, as well as with other colleagues across the company.

You’ll succeed in this role by leaning in with curiosity and adopting a blend of analysis techniques, including quantitative and qualitative approaches. You’ll skillfully use data visualizations to support your strong writing and critical thinking through client deliverables, from reports to memos to presentations.

As an Analyst, you’ll transform data into valuable insights (both written and verbal) for our clients to answer their most pressing questions and needs. Whether through client or internal conversations or deliverables, you’re comfortable demystifying, humanizing, and synthesizing complex information and deriving meaning from metrics using a qualitative lens and approach.

Prior experience in qualitative research is strongly desired, social listening and higher education experience are preferred. You will undergo training on how to conduct social intelligence research. The most successful candidates will have demonstrated a history of working collaboratively with others to achieve goals while also being able to work independently and manage their own workload. You are a self-starter who takes the initiative to learn, adjust, and improve. You’re comfortable proactively adapting to rapidly shifting priorities and business needs, evolving standards, and a constantly changing industry as part of a small startup team.
