Career Stories

You will grow at Escalent. Our people say it best.

At first, I was nervous about adjusting to a new work structure and industry. On my first day, my managing director said, "I have full confidence in your ability to do this job ... give yourself six months to fall in love with it before you make a decision." In the two and a half years I have been with Escalent, I have been able to progress from a Research Analyst to a Director of Research, and I could not have done it without the incredible backing of my team and the organization!

Kat Waller, Director of Research & Consulting, Qualitative

I started my research career here at Escalent as an intern back in 2010. Over the years, I’ve learned from many great researchers and have worked across several of our industry groups. As Escalent has grown and evolved, so has my experience and exposure to different methodologies, teams, and innovations. Now, I lead a team of insights analysts for our Consumer Goods & Retail division.

Katie Zmijewski, Director of Insights, Consumer Goods & Retail

I’ve been fortunate to grow across my 15+ year career. I started on the "crash course of research,”—automotive product clinics. I transferred to auto teams and led our cross-functional, connected data program called DataDialogue to ingest, analyze/transform, and visualize fleet telematics data in a mobile app. Since then, I have been a Program Lead for our B2B audience, Fleet Advisory Hub. Focusing on this evolving landscape allows me to provide guidance to customers across vehicle manufacturers, fleet service providers, and technology and media companies.

Lucas Lowden, Insights Consultant, Automotive & Mobility

After graduating from college, I joined Escalent as part of the Automotive team. It was a cool experience to be able to run projects on my own, manage a team of staff in various locations, and work outside at some fun events like the Super Bowl! Over the years, I gained more experience consulting with our clients and managing other Escalent team members. I am grateful to work with an intelligent, caring, fun bunch—we truly act like family, in the best way.

Kimberly Doherty, Insights Director, Automotive & Mobility

I joined Escalent as a Senior Analyst on the Financial Services team. My first few years were immersed in learning about the nuances of this industry through a wide variety of both qualitative and quantitative projects. My manager and managing director guided me to explore my current role through the ‘Sales and Success’ pillar lens. My transition from an analyst to a client manager is just one of the many examples of career possibilities at Escalent.

Vivek Amin, Director of Wealth and Institutional, Financial Services

My Escalent journey began right out of undergrad. Little did I know, I would turn colleagues into a work family and find my home. My role has transformed and progressed over the past 15 years, challenging me to grow in ways I didn’t think possible. I am forever grateful my team took a chance on me years ago and continues to push me to be a better researcher and team member every day!
