Job Description

Your Team

At Bresslergroup, we are a motivated lot of thinkers, makers, and problem solvers. We challenge and inspire each other every day. BGers are curious, clever, and confident, and we look for candidates who are all those things and more. Our firm is technically grounded, so that we can take any idea – no matter how complex – and make it a reality, while simultaneously keeping our design simple and clean. With five disciplines under one roof, we work in multidisciplinary teams whose combined research, creative, and technical expertise add value throughout a collaborative product-development process. This is how we remain reliably innovative.

Your Purpose

As a Consumer Trend Analyst, you develop in-depth, contextual understanding of the consumer and contribute to design strategies that impact our clients’ business. You will join the growing Design Strategy team, and collaborate with our research, design and engineering teams to create elegant solutions to complex design challenges.

You are comfortable and fluent with leading consumer trend analysis across multiple industries using both primary and secondary research.
You are excited about the opportunity to help the Design Strategy team continue to grow and expand their capabilities and resources.

Key Responsibilities

 Create well-considered, insightful reports that combine consumer and secondary research on social-cultural, business, and technology trends.

 Develop quantitative and qualitative consumer research studies and translate the research data into actionable insights for our clients.

 Conduct co-creation workshops with key stakeholders to develop insights and new perspectives about the future of their business.

 Present research findings through data visualizations, storytelling, and written analysis for our clients and internal teams.

 Work with design strategists to turn insights into forward-looking, evidence-based strategies that impact our clients’ business models and product road maps
