Research Associate, Primary Research

| Seattle

In just a little over a decade, PitchBook has grown into a global organization with offices in Seattle, San Francisco, New York and London. With consistent high double-digit growth since 2009, the company has become the industry’s leading source of private market data, serving more than 3,000 clients around the world.

As a four-time winner of the Best Workplaces in Washington award, PitchBook is committed to fostering an open, collaborative work environment driven by excellence, inclusion and fun. Our culture is at the heart of our success, and it’s something we work on every day.

Our primary home for the last decade, PitchBook’s Seattle office has grown from humble beginnings in a 200-square-foot windowless room to our current three-floor home in a downtown skyscraper. Located just blocks away from Pike Place Market and historic Pioneer Square, our headquarters boast stunning mountain views, open collaboration spaces and a startup culture that emphasizes hard work and camaraderie. Working in our Seattle office means growing your career alongside smart, dedicated people in the city where it all began. 

Job Overview

 Are you a great communicator who loves finding answers to complex questions? Are you looking for a role where you can make an impact, create channels of communication with industry leaders, and join a rapidly growing company that has opportunities at the next level for high performers across several departments? If so, we'd love to talk!

We are looking for Primary Research Associates to help our teams collect data, improve outreach processes, and create relationships with high level executives at private equity and venture capital investment firms, the advisors they work with, or the companies they back. In this role you will join one of our dataset teams with an initial focus on mastering our data management tool and direct outreach processes. Once mastered, you will focus on direct outreach data-collection from contacts involved in PE and VC deals using outbound email and/or call campaigns to gather and update the data in our platform. Please note that this is not an academic-type research position and does not require a deep understanding of advanced statistical methods.

Nearly everyone in the Research Department starts as a Research Associate. This learning process and growth of industry knowledge creates a pathway for our Primary Research Associates to grow into Senior Research Associates and Team Leads within Research, or a variety of roles on other teams at PitchBook.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Building relationships with industry professionals at private equity and venture capital backed companies, service providers or private investment firms
  • Managing email and/or call campaigns with the goal of gathering and verifying private market data
  • Leveraging technology-based tools to ensure that proprietary data is added to the PitchBook Platform efficiently and with attention to quality
  • Working with your team to develop and improve processes, tools and methodologies

You may be the right candidate if you have:

  • Amazing communication skills, both verbal and in written materials
  • Comfort making a high volume of outbound calls on a daily basis
  • The ability to work both independently and as part of a team
  • Strong organizational and multi-tasking skills
  • A background or interest in learning about the private equity, venture capital and M&A industries
  • 1 – 2 years professional experience, which may be in the form of an internship
  • Bachelor’s degree required

The Research team is one of the largest and most important teams at PitchBook Data, totaling over three hundred people across three continents. It is responsible for the core of what we do as a company— provide high quality data on the private markets. We also believe in making our department a fun and inviting place to be, and our traditions such as baked good Mondays, potluck breakfast Fridays and monthly team outings keep us happy (and full).

Company Overview

At PitchBook, we provide transparency into the capital markets by organizing the world’s meaningful business information and making it useful to our customers. We work tirelessly to arm global professionals with comprehensive data on the entire venture capital, private equity and M&A landscape—including companies, investors, funds, investments, exits and people—so they can discover and execute opportunities with confidence.

An Insider's view of PitchBook

What are some social events your company does?

As the (unofficial) social chair of the outside sales team, I’ve gotten to plan a ton of awesome events, from group pedicures to rooftop happy hours to rock climbing. We also do incentive trips. My favorite was rafting down the Colorado River through the Moab Desert in Utah.

Cindy

Sr. Business Development Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

PitchBook made it a priority to support my growth by understanding my aspirations and aligning a plan to get me there. My vision was to be in a leadership position and PitchBook motivated me to achieve this by providing me with tremendous resources, guidance, and opportunities to push myself and succeed.

Nitin

Manager, West Coast Customer Success Development

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work on the accounts receivable team at PitchBook, which involves extensive collaboration with other teams to obtain and update client billing information, reconcile expenses and complete compliance forms. My role requires me to work closest with customer success and outside sales to improve processes for invoicing and error prevention.
