We are looking for Mandarin speakers to join us on a project by project basis as a Researcher for our reports. We are an independent research firm.

You will be a key part of the Chinese team, working closely with other Researchers and Project Managers to update them on project progress and to provide insight on the trends that you have observed in your research.
