About Change Research

Change Research innovates to solve critically-important problems at the intersection of data, social science, and politics.

American democracy was preserved in 2020 with the help of insight and data; polling innovations helped thousands of candidates — from the Democratic nominee for President to municipal candidates and everyone in between — use modern data science techniques to win.

You want to be at the center of the next wave to work on doing things better and thrive in an environment that prizes a commitment to impact and accuracy in a fast-paced, campaign-like environment.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We value a diverse and inclusive workplace and value the strength of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives brought to our team. We strongly encourage women, Black, Indigenous, and people of color, LGBTQ people, veterans, people living with disabilities, and members of other historically disenfranchised populations to apply.
