The Role

As an Experienced Associate on our client service team, you’ll act as the connection point between our clients and industry experts. Your role is to focus on clients’ knowledge gaps and identify experts with the knowledge that can address them. Thinking quickly and critically, you’ll conduct surface-level research on companies and industries to identify the precise experts around the globe who can answer our clients’ questions. You’ll spend considerable time reaching out by phone to experts to assess whether their knowledge is a relevant match to the client request you’re working on and you’ll connect qualified experts to our clients in real time. Working on several client requests at the same time, you’ll need to learn effective prioritization to efficiently identify and qualify highly relevant expertise.

This is a fast-paced, client facing, communication-intense role with a clear focus on effectiveness and revenue generation. Associates develop skills in negotiation, professional communication, project management, client service, conflict resolution, and training which pave their way to successful careers in commercial and operational leadership.

An Insider's view of AlphaSights

What are some social events your company does?

The Software Engineering team celebrates our successes with monthly team events, such as team dinners, "Beat the Bomb", Sofar Sounds concerts, drinks, etc. We also have an annual team-wide international off-site to bond with our colleagues across the globe. Last year we all met in Lisbon for a long weekend of fun activities.

Manor Lev-Tov

Director of Data Science

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The majority of our users are internal, so we enjoy working closely with many different teams to understand their needs and ideas. We have direct access to feedback and insights that drive our success and encourage us to get creative and try new things.

Leanne Lyons

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Our team loves learning from each other whether it’s through paired programming, going to/giving tech talks, or sharing the latest tech on Slack. We facilitate our engineers growth by providing a conference and learning budget, active mentoring, and enabling our devs to spend 10% of their time on sandbox days pursuing passion projects.

Kevin Lester

Vice President of Software Engineering

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Innovation often means allowing for failure, so we maintain a culture of openness to ideas, no matter how far-fetched. Our team reserves a "Sandbox Day" every iteration, giving time to experiment with new technology and implement new features. Engineering is a mix of discipline and creativity, and Sandbox Days bring out the best of both.

Heath Hohwald

Chief Technology Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The agency that people have to make their own mark on the company stands out to me. At AlphaSights, you define what you want to work on and what you think will be impactful at an earlier stage in your career. This autonomy fosters an energetic environment where people feel safe to create and try new things.

Tricia Maia

Director of Product

What are AlphaSights Perks + Benefits

AlphaSights Benefits Overview

We believe that when we put our people first, they will put our clients first, and our clients will therefore put us first. With this in mind, we provide an accelerated career path, where associates have the opportunity to become managers and then vice president sooner than other companies. We invest heavily in our professional development team; from day one, we have a rigorous onboarding program to fully support our new joiner classes.

Each team at AlphaSights has budget to attend conferences and speaker events to pursue their interests and continue their personal development.

We work with top technology and equipment options including standing and seated desks and yoga ball chairs.

We like to celebrate our successes together and often so we provide a budget for monthly team events and the occasional offsite. Most recently, our Software Engineering team had an offsite in Lisbon, Portugal. We also have many different affinity groups that all employees are welcome to join. These include the Women's Initiative Network (WIN), Charity House, Brand Ambassadors, and 3 company sports teams (soccer, softball, and basketball).

AlphaSights values philanthropy in and beyond its local communities. Knowledge for Good, our social impact unit, partners with select nonprofits to offer our services at no or low cost.
