Marketing Research Manager


Fatherly’s Advertising Sales Team is seeking an analytical and strategy-minded Marketing Research Manager to help our team evolve the understanding of what it means to be a parent today through proprietary and partner-led research that will help drive new client partnerships and meaningful renewals. This person will use existing knowledge of digital research tools, media math and proven quantitative skills to develop themed stories around Fatherly’s proprietary data, the current and evolving state of today’s parents and how brands can best measure and drive impact.
