Description

Monitor 360 is the Narrative Analytics+Strategy company based in Washington, DC.  We help organizations understand, analyze, and shape the narratives that are most impacting their work. Narrative Analytics™ is a listening-oriented approach; it combines the depth of social science with the scale of data science, leveraging large data sets to surface "beliefs at scale." We are looking for an talented Associate who can help design and deliver high quality materials for our clients.

Monitor 360 combines social science and data science to surface "beliefs at scale" – synthesizing massive data sets from news media, blogs, social media, and other sources – and allow leaders to harness narratives to their advantage to manage brand reputations, launch new products, fuel advocacy campaigns, and create breakthrough strategic plans. We’ve worked with the Gates Foundation to conduct research and devise strategies for managing the complex debate over education reform; the Omidyar Network on social impact investing; and major government agencies on countering narratives prompted by violent extremists. If it’s a hard, fast-moving narrative problem, we’re probably working on it (in 40+ countries) whether it’s for a major corporation, foundation, or the White House.  To learn more go to: http://www.monitor-360.com/
