About Us

CMB is a full-service custom market research and strategy firm based in Boston. As a Top 30 Insights & Analytics company, we’re known for our relentless business-decision focus and cutting-edge creativity. Our passion is helping the world’s leading brands engage, innovate, and grow. We leverage the best of advanced analytics, consumer psychology, and market strategy to tackle game-changing initiatives and business challenges for our clients.

What about our culture?  Simply put, our people are our power. We have a diverse, inclusive and collaborative team of bright perspectives and curious minds.  At CMB you’ll have plenty of opportunities to achieve your full potential. From learning new skills, expanding your expertise, and continuing to advance your professional development, you will feel supported and valued. 

Our benefits say a lot about how much we value our employees: we offer a fully paid sabbatical, a $250 wellness stipend, paid time off to volunteer, generous medical plans, a 401k match, and more. Every employee also gets to enjoy an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP).

ESOP?  Yes, we are 100% employee owned!  An ESOP is like a qualified retirement plan, similar to a 401k, but you don’t have to make any contributions to participate in the rewards.  When we each work hard to provide exceptional service and deliverables to our clients, the positive performance of the company increases the value of our stock and enables the accumulation of wealth for all our employee-owners.

About the Position

Are you ready to kick start your career in market research? Our growing team is looking for the next generation of Insights Consultants to work with the world’s leading brands. The Insights Associate role serves as the introductory point for that path. Insights Associates learn the ropes of quantitative and qualitative project execution through vendor management, contributing to questionnaire development, performing basic data analysis, assisting with client-ready deliverables and more.

This role reports to a dedicated Insights Associate Team Manager based in Boston and supports successful client-project delivery across the company. A structured skills training program is provided which offers introductions and access to Subject Matter Experts throughout CMB. Additionally, every Insights Associate is assigned a dedicated mentor (an experienced CMB Researcher) and is presented with many opportunities to learn by observing and interacting with team members and clients.  

About You

People say you are detail-oriented, analytical and a valuable team player. You are comfortable taking initiative and you’re driven to get things done, even if it means juggling multiple priorities.  You are insatiably curious, always looking to learn more, solve challenges and share your thoughts with others.
