Product Research Assistant (closed for new applicants)

Job description

Ever wondered what it feels like to do product research at a high-growth, successful scale-up? Or perhaps talk with companies such as Vodafone, Mercedes, and Dolce & Gabbana? Then this might be the job for you!

At Binkies we are enthusiastically working to make our mark in the world of real-time online 3D content. Are you currently making an impact on millions around the globe? At Binkies you will! Our worldwide clients rely on us to deliver incredibly accurate, amazing quality 3D content to their millions of customers. And our Product and Innovation team is currently looking for someone to help us find new potential contacts!


Here's what we are looking for

We want to expand our product catalog. To do this, we need to know which companies to approach and whom to approach within that company for our product research. We want our message to reach the right people!

You will be responsible for finding the right companies and right people to contact. And then you will establish contact with them to schedule a meeting with one of our product managers. You will serve as the first point of contact for many of our potential contacts for our product research.


In short: we need somebody that is kick-ass at Googling and can help us reach new potential research contacts.
