Working in our Seattle office means growing your career alongside smart, dedicated people in the city where it all began.
Are you a naturally inquisitive person who enjoys digging into the details? Are you looking for a role where you can make an impact, gain product operational experience, 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!
In this role, you will join one of our dataset teams with an initial focus on mastering our proprietary data entry tool and research process. Once mastered, you will help our teams collect data on the private capital markets, improve data collection operations, and provide quality checks of existing data. Please note this role is more closely aligned to a product operational role than academic or marketing research.

- Ramping up to become an expert in one of PitchBook’s core research areas by collecting, and entering data on private companies within a specific dataset into the PitchBook Platform
- Reviewing previously-researched information to provide feedback to other researchers
- Collaborating cross-culturally with global teams
- Communicating effectively and efficiently with internal stakeholders in person and through email
- Working with your team to develop and improve processes, tools and methodologies.
You may be the right candidate if you have:
- A high attention to detail
- Strong communication skills, both verbal and in written materials
- Dedication to continuous improvement
- Ability to work both independently and as part of a team
- Interest in the private equity, venture capital and M&A industries
- 1 – 2 years of professional work experience, which could be in the form of an internship
