We are looking for a Research Manager to join our growing team in New York City.

You will have experience working with cities, governments or urban services. This role has the opportunity to influence the decisions cities take when solving problems, designing public services and public procurements resulting in better quality of life for hundreds of thousands of citizens. This role reports to Citymart's CEO.

You must be someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment. You are passionate about helping cities, analytical, creative, independent, focused, and an excellent problem solver. You must have the ability to work with cross-functional teams, shape and contribute to Citymart strategy, and identify product needs.

Ideally, you have experience identifying avenues for research and managing a research process in the urban innovation space. You are able to see the big picture, identify goals, and effectively assign roles for other researchers to play in bringing data on urban solutions into the Citymart platform.

Ideally, you also have a knack for working with data sets and have experience securing and automating data transfers. You are adept at identifying what data is most relevant to users, and you are committed to making Citymart data the most useful source of solution information for cities anywhere. You are articulate in written format but feel just as comfortable spending the day with spreadsheets or datasets. You like building things and then testing how well they work, and you are not afraid to admit when something is not working. You have a passion for cities and the public servants who shape them.
