As a small, nimble and collaborative team we offer an opportunity to make a real impact - every role matters and everyone’s voice is heard.

You should be comfortable working with ambiguity and at pace as you collaborate to explore research questions that help us make better decisions across the Airtime experience.

What you’ll bring to the table:

  • Expertise in qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods research methodologies and a keen interest to continue to grow and develop further
  • Excellent communication skills - translating complex data into clear, concise, and useful insights. 
  • A creative thinker - you look for patterns and make connections in the world around you. 
  • An open, curious mindset and a sense of humility; you can consider the pros, cons and limitations of the research in addressing particular needs and questions
  • Good teamwork ability and mindset. Airtime is a supportive, ego-free zone.
  • Ability to work independently and take initiative to solve problems - you are good at looking at a situation and asking questions about it.
