Job Description

ORGANIZATIONAL SCIENCE IN MOTION AND YOU

You think strategically, are futuristic, investigative by nature, take pride in driving projects to completion, and can influence others through persuasion, expertise, and reading people.

You can sense as you read this that contributing to a successful and growing business by creating and improving evidence-based assets and service offerings in the areas of organizational culture, health and agility; change management; human capital analytics; and workforce of the future is something you would do well, and feel great about.

Your curiosity (or curriculum) has led you to go beyond traditional methods of inquiry, although you are well-equipped to perform multivariate analyses and validation studies. So, you understand (and can apply) multiple quantitative methods against the same question, e.g., comparing classical LSD regression results with those of machine learning approaches like Random Forest and Support Vectors to identify the most important drivers of an outcome.

You care about your professional development.

You'd love to live and work in New York City.
