About VICE

An international media company that captures people at the heart of stories, and focuses on the ideas, issues, and context that other outlets miss. Launched in 1994, VICE operates in 35 cities across the globe, making 1500 pieces of content every day with a focus on five lines of business: VICE Digital, an award-winning international network of digital content; VICE STUDIOS, a feature film and television production studio; VICELAND, an Emmy-winning international television network; a Peabody award-winning NEWS division; and VIRTUE, a global, full-service creative agency with 21 offices around the world.

VICE x Team

The insights team at VICE is responsible for creating thought leadership and strategic thinking that fuels the growth of VICE Media Group and its partners. We are experts in primary research methodologies – both qualitative and quantitative - but also surface insights from across VICE's ecosystem such as content analytics, campaign performance, our DMP and some third party data sources. The team is as much analytical as it is creative. We thrive on curiosity, ambition and collaboration – within the team and across departments.

Role x You

You are a passionate, strategic and detail-oriented researcher who is well versed in a variety of methodologies but also wants to break with convention and create new ways to gather, analyze and tell stories with data and information.

In the short term you will manage research initiatives for both VICE and partner brands. This includes working with teammates to translate business objectives into a research approach, crafting the research instruments, fielding the project and analyzing the results. You will work on bespoke research projects for internal departments, external clients and thought leadership for the company as a whole.

After 6 months in this role you will manage projects more independently, honing your strategic thinking and storytelling skills to develop thought provoking and actionable takeaways. You'll be passionate about developing creative ways to display data and information.

And after a year you'll grow to lead some projects on your own and be actively sharing insights internally through workshops and externally at client presentations.


You have these:
• Minimum of 4 years of experience in consumer research and constantly curious about the world around you
• Solid project management and organizational skills with strong detail orientation and ability to multitask
• Proficiency with data analysis tools
• Ability to analyze and summarize data and information across sources and methodologies

We'd love if you also had these:
• Experience with both qualitative and quantitative research
• Excellent verbal, written and presentation skills
• Previous experience at a media company

We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they're here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn't invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you've got.

If you require reasonable accommodation during the application and selection process, please let us know. We will work together to best meet your needs.

Working at VICE
