Who We Are Looking For
We are looking for an Intelligence Support Analyst with a strong passion for uncovering journalistic insights from reams of background materials and has experience pulling together the right highlights and summaries from a combination of data sources.
Our Analysts are challenged everyday to sift through key documents, proposals, plans and budgets relating to cites across the U.
S. and Canada. They need to extract and understand the key narratives that are important to our clients, while still capturing the adjacent supporting data with impeccable attention to detail.
Their research findings serve as training sets for our machine-learning algorithms that not only enhance our search tools, that in turn help our Analysts find even more relevant insights.
The position will be based out of our Toronto Headquarters.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate a strong command of investigative research methodologies, an understanding of data-driven best practices and a knowledge of data modelling and relational databases.
They will be able to work independently for much of their time, but will come together with the wider team to share and present their findings and seek input from the Product, Sales, Client Success and Engineering Teams on other angles and data to uncover.
The interview process will include a skills test and literary review that must be completed in order to be considered for this position.
What You Will Accomplish :
Deliver public infrastructure-related research & analytics that our clients need and answer any related follow-up questions that our clients may have regarding the source or consistency of the research.

Multi-disciplinary knowledge of infrastructure markets, regulations, programs, and topics in specific public infrastructure markets across Canada and USA is a plus
A willingness to fail and find dead ends, but learn fast and make immediate adjustments
Prior experience in an infrastructure-related research role or projects is ideal, but not necessary
We take tens of millions of unstructured documents and bring them to life using algorithms to find and extract the golden nuggets of insight buried inside an ocean of data
You get to direct exposure to Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Tech Entrepreneurship and Infrastructure Markets from our in-house subject matter experts and industry titans.
