Description

CGRSS is where innovation meets market research. We enable people to find, plan, and do by providing them key information and tools on the markets of their choice from apps to services on a single platform.

If you know anything about starting up a company, you know the importance of backing your idea with key information on the market you wish to enter or disrupt. We simplify the process for you, defragmenting the web and its array of information. We customize our research to our customers’ needs.

Let us together re-invent what it means to do market research. Rather than spending days if not weeks sifting through websites, hopping from apps to apps, we bring you a one-stop solution, tailored research just for your industry or company.

CGRSS has a fast paced work environment and we seek talented employees who crave learning new skills and aren't afraid to tackle big projects. As an intern you will get to work with a variety of our staff, while working on real projects that will help us grow.

Our ideal candidate is someone who walks into a room of people and can’t leave without making a few friends. Someone who is obsessed with social media and is creative and thoughtful when interacting with online communities and building relationships.
