Change Research, a Public Benefit Company
Title: Polling Fellow
Status: Full-time fellow (several months, negotiable)
Location: Palo Alto, CA
Salary: Hourly or stipend
You are committed to giving back to your community, fighting for what you believe in, and making impactful choices in your everyday life. You wish your career could reflect your commitment to civic engagement, but you’re not sure if there are really jobs that equally value social impact, tech innovation, and business success. There are.
In 2017, we figured out a new way to quickly, affordably, and accurately measure public opinion online. We use this technology to guide forward-thinking candidates and causes and create winning strategies with them.
Change Research is innovating to solve critically-important problems at the intersection of data, social science, and politics. And in doing this, we hope to make our democracy better.
Ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is core to our values. We invite folks with different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer. Join us.
