compensation: Please see the compensation section of our job posting above

1.) Who we are:
We are a medium sized, cloud-based consultancy headquartered in Delaware, USA, but with consultants spread across the globe, from Asia to South America. We primarily handle Academic Consulting for Doctorate level clients, and are currently hiring Analysts and Sales Consultants.

Each position is a strictly work-from-home position, and any applicant should view this as a strong incentive. Please note that hours for these positions are flexible, from part-time (10 hours per week) up to full-time (50-60 hours per week) depending on your schedule and preferences.

2a.) Job responsibilities for the Qualitative Analyst position:
Your main responsibility will be to support our clients in the their dissertation processes. This may include:

Content changes - Making changes to pre-existing work based on the comments of the client's dissertation committee.

Topic selection - Finding research gaps in academic literature, creating a valid problem statement, justifying the purpose for the study, and selecting an underlying Theoretical or Conceptual Framework
to guide the study.

Expansions - Taking a preliminary piece of the client's work, and expanding it into complete chapters.

Literature Reviews - Finding and reviewing relevant recent literature, creating an outline and Annotated Bibliography for a literature review, and drafting the review based on the articles and outline.

Multi-part Projects - projects that involve elements of all of the above, and/or involve assisting our clients in correcting errors made in the above areas of their dissertation.

There will be substantial 'on the job learning' as you're slowly introduced to (and trained on) each of the above project types, one-by-one.

2b.) Job responsibilities for the Qualitative Methodologist position:
Your main responsibility will be to assist clients with Qualitative Methods and Analysis - specifically using NVIVO. This primarily consists of:

Methodological Development - Choosing the optimal qualitative methodology to use for a particular study, such as Grounded Theory, Content Analysis, or Phenomenology.

Qualitative Analysis - Coding qualitative data such as interviews or focus group transcripts, conducting the analysis using qualitative analysis software, and interpreting the results.

Please note that all Qualitative Methodologists will need a working copy of NVIVO, and will need to acquire that themselves (we do not provide the software).

2c.) Job responsibilities for the Quantitative Analyst position:
Your main responsibility will be to support our clients in the statistical phases of their dissertation processes.

Importantly, you will need to be comfortable designing and drafting a valid statistical methodology
(specifying the sample, population, instruments, data collection and analysis procedures, etc.),
running the analyses using standard stats packages, and drafting and interpreting the results.

All deliverables need to be in a presentable, professional format, and should adhere to APA guidelines when applicable. Applicants must have a strong applied mathematics or statistics background; proficiency in applied statistics and hypothesis testing required.

Additionally, applicants must be familiar with common statistical software packages such as SPSS, R or Stata. As a bonus, applicants experienced in SEM and Path Analysis software like AMOS or MPLUS will receive higher pay for those project types.

3.) Job responsibilities for the Sales Consultant position:
For those applicants who wish to be considered for Sales Consultant, they first must pass the trial and training process as Qualitative Analysts. Upon successful completion of the process, and after a series of phone interviews and written assessments, an analyst can be converted from a part-time position
to a full time position with salary and bonuses.

The majority of this job will involve communications with leads and clients, as well as management and oversight of existing analysts. While there is absolutely 0 'cold-calling' of any kind, you will be expected to speak to, and consult with potential interested clients when they contact the firm. Finally,
you need to be able to manage expectations, and build long-lasting relationships with both your academic and business clients.

4.) Requirements:
Applicants must possess a meticulous nature and an extremely high attention to detail.

Excellent command of the English Language.

Bachelor's Degree or higher, preferably from a good American university. However, most of our analysts have graduate degrees.

Comfort with researching academic literature via online databases such as Google Scholar or ERIC. This particular requirement is extremely important, perhaps even more so than the other requirements.

5.) Compensation:
a.) Qualitative Analyst fees vary by project type and complexity. Typically, it ranges from $200-$400 per project depending on length, difficulty, and timeline. Most of our analysts make between $1000-$2000 monthly on limited, flexible hours. However, several full-time analysts make substantially more, depending on how quickly and efficiently they can do the work, as well as their experience and seniority at the firm.

b.) Qualitative Methodologist fees are typically higher than Qualitative Analyst fees, due to the additional expertise that it requires. Project fees range from $400-800, depending on length, difficulty, and timeline. Most analysts make between $1000-3000 depending on project load, and some can make even more than that. Please note that the trial project and hiring sequence for this position is stricter and more difficult than the qualitative analyst position.

c.) Quantitative Analyst fees vary depending on whether the work is primarily done in SPSS, or if it requires other software like SAS, STATA, R, AMOS, MPLUS etc. In the former case, fees range from $100-$300, and in the latter case, fees range from $300-$900. More advanced software is typically required if the project is large and/or complex, requiring more sophisticated statistical methodologies. We do not provide any of the software, and all applicants must have access to their own software to be considered.

d.) Sales Consultants make $2000 as a training salary (training typically lasts 3 months), which increases to $4000 upon completion, with bonus of 0-100% paid monthly. All candidates, regardless of where they started with the firm, must spend at least a couple months as a qualitative analyst before being considered for the position.

6.) To Apply:
Please reply with a recently updated resume, and a cover letter or email explaining your interest in the specified position: Qualitative Analyst, Qualitative Methodologist, or Quantitative Analyst. Applications without this information will be disregarded.

Additionally, please let us know whether you'd like to be strictly a work at home, part-time analyst, or would like to be considered for a full-time Sales Consultant position.
