Working on the Intelligence Unit is like having a front row seat to the future. There is no team quite like ours anywhere, inside or outside of tech. It’s a unique opportunity to spend your day analyzing the technology markets, business models, and companies of tomorrow in emerging tech. To do so, you will have full access to the CB Insights software platform and its billions of data points, which you will be immersed in every day.

You will be surrounded by some of the most curious and driven people you will ever meet and held up to the highest standards every day. Our analysts and editors come from backgrounds as diverse as investment banking, VC, consulting, equity research, journalism, and market research.

Your main tasks:

  • Publish digestible, differentiated, and incisive research on our client-only platform.
  • Analyze the momentum of fintech startups, markets, and competitive dynamics.
  • Understand and develop prescriptive insights for decision makers and executives across banking, payments, among other areas.
  • Track tech markets and companies and develop an impactful research agenda.
  • Develop and give client and prospect presentations to discuss tech markets and companies in fintech.
  • Support PR requests and CB Insights events with data and category knowledge.
  • Must be passionate and knowledgeable about fintech and related disciplines such as venture capital and M&A.

What you bring to the table: 

  • Writing experience is a must – can be within the fields of tech or market research, journalism, equity research, investment banking, or consulting in technology, or related areas.
  • 8+ years of professional experience in technology research in the fintech space or a related position (can be while working in any of the fields cited below), preferably in banking, payments, or lending. Having an understanding of enabling technologies such as AI, cloud, and blockchain is also beneficial.
  • Show a contagious passion for the material: Must be a startup/tech geek passionate about all things fintech.
  • Ability to synthesize data and develop meaningful viewpoints and prescriptive insights.
  • Strong communication/presentation skills and leadership abilities. You should feel comfortable speaking to Fortune 500 clients/prospects as an authority on the business and the category.
  • Some startup experience is ideal, a thick skin and high tolerance for change required.
  • Ability to multi-task and manage the details while keeping an eye on the big picture.
  • BA/BS required; relevant graduate degrees a plus.


Please note this is a US-based role.

In addition to base salary, this role is also eligible for a bonus opportunity.
