Breakthrough Research is a boutique custom market research firm based in the heart of beautiful Miracle Mile in Los Angeles. We’re passionate about research, (we hope you are too!), and about helping our clients find and polish the insights that will help drive their businesses further.
We are seeking a strategic and results driven Account Manager, for either a remote or Los Angeles based position. The Account Manager will be responsible for acquiring new business while maintaining and developing existing client accounts, across a wide variety of industries. The Account Manager will have prior experience as a market researcher or as a market research Account Manager, and an extensive understanding of custom market research methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative.
The Account Manager will have strong relationships with a wide range of client-side businesses, and will be comfortable explaining research methodologies and client services to prospective clients. The Account Manager will have a superb consultative style and an impressive track record of successfully meeting business and/or sales objectives.
This position may again be L.A. based or remote. If L.A. based this position will operate remotely, to start, as our team is currently working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, once we are able to safely reopen our office, the Account Manager will report into our Los Angeles location if L.A. based.
At Breakthrough Research our people are as cool as the work we do, and you’ll enjoy a diverse and fun company culture complete with team social activities, (we’re serious about our trivia nights), volunteer events, curated experiences (virtual wine tasting, anyone?), wellness activities and more.
Breakthrough offers competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental and vision health insurance, 401(k) with a company match, an Employee Assistance Program, short and long-term disability insurance, sick days, parental leave, paid holidays and paid vacation days. So we’ve got you covered.
