1. Who we are:

We are a medium-sized, cloud-based consultancy headquartered in Las Vegas, USA but with consultants spread across the globe, from Asia to South America. We primarily handle academic consulting for doctoral-level clients, and we are currently hiring qualitative analysts, methodologists, and statisticians.

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 schedule and preferences.

All applicants will be required to attempt a trial project testing the skills needed to meet the demands of the position they are applying for. All applicants to the same position will receive the same trial project--successful applicants will be paid for the trial project, but unsuccessful applicants will NOT be paid. Please note for the trial project and for all final deliverables, MS Word will be required.

2. Job responsibilities:

2a. Job responsibilities for the Qualitative Analyst position:
Your main responsibility will be to support our clients in 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.

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.

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. It is very important for all applicants to the qualitative analyst position to be comfortable 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.

2b. Job responsibilities for the Qualitative Methodologist position:
The main responsibility will be to support our clients in their dissertation processes, specifically regarding their qualitative methodologies and analyses:

Methodological development--Choosing the optimal qualitative methodology to use for a particular study design, such as grounded theory, case study, 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.

We do not provide training or software necessary for the qualitative methodologist position. The applicant should be familiar with at least one of NVivo or ATLAS.ti, and preferably both, as well as have a working full copy of the software that they wish to attempt the trial project with.

2c. Job responsibilities for the Statistician position:
The main responsibility will be to support our corporate clients with larger, more complex statistical analyses.

All applicants will need to be comfortable designing and drafting a valid statistical methodology (specifying the sample, population, instrumentation, 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. Applicants must have a strong applied mathematics or statistics background; proficiency in applied statistics and hypothesis testing is required. Applicants must be familiar with SPSS, R, and/or Python.

We do not provide training for this position, and as such, any applicant should have high-level statistical consulting experience in a corporate environment.

3. Requirements:
Applicants must possess a meticulous nature and an extremely high attention to detail, as well as excellent command of the English Language.

A bachelor's degree or higher, preferably from a good American university, is required. However, most of our analysts have graduate degrees.

All statisticians must have graduate degrees in biostatistics, statistics, applied math, etc, as well as relevant experience in their field.

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.
