Since 2008, AlphaSights has pioneered a faster, better way for professionals to access highly specific business knowledge. We help our clients discover precisely the knowledge they need quickly and effectively, enabling confident decision-making and eliminating the need for slow market research or costly consultancy engagements.
Seamless global teamwork across our offices in New York, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, Seoul and Hong Kong allows us to rapidly deliver on the most challenging client demands effectively, confidentially and across all industry sectors and geographies.
We are successful – regularly ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in the world – but will only continue to succeed if we deliver excellence day in, and day out. The next stage of our growth centers on building an industry-leading, global corporate business.
As a key member of AlphaSights’ nascent Corporate business segment, your role is to win business.
