Job Description

Zappi is the ad and innovation testing platform built by brands for brands.

When we set out to transform the world of market research in 2012, we wanted to build a platform that helped brands run consumer testing through all stages of advertising and innovation development. The result? A platform that gives users easy access to better research methodologies so our customers can test more, learn more, and ultimately make better decisions about the ads and innovation they take to market.

Now, we want to make the world of insights even better; to scale expertise and create the world’s most powerful enterprise research platform.

To have continued success, we need an environment that fosters constant learning and ambitious goals; a place of diverse opinions and experiences, where talented people can do their best work with very little in their way. We care deeply about people, the environment and our communities. So much so that we place the same level of importance on our impact on the world, as we do to turning a profit.

To realize our vision we are constantly in search of people who will bring a different perspective, who will challenge our thinking, create value for our customers and apply themselves passionately to our vision and culture. We look forward to meeting you.
