Who We Are

At Networked Insights, we help brands answer interesting questions about their audiences. We use our custom & predictive audience data, and our audience research capabilities to help solve real problems that others cannot. Many clients use our data to influence content strategy, develop new products, or to activate our audiences in digital and offline channels, delivering outstanding results.

And this is not your typical data – Networked Insights’ custom built & proprietary technology analyzes millions of conversations a day, all in real-time, to tell us what people really care about, how they feel about different topics, and how they think. Whether it’s helping one of the top cell phone manufacturers choose what features they should build for their next phone, or building custom media campaigns that speak to what individuals care about…we can help.

An Insider's view of Networked Insights

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Networked Insights offers flexibility – and they do it in the right way. Colleagues are in the position to do what they need to do - Flexibility to work from home, flexible time off. Networked Insights wants to make sure our people are taken care of so they’re doing their best work.

Sebastian

Senior Architect

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

DevOps without broad inter-departmental buy-in would be toothless and silly, like an old tyrannosaurus without its dentures. We work closely with our developers to streamline every part of our development and deployment processes. So much company culture is wrapped up in even our most technical practices and inspiring when we can refine together.

DevOps Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

The part I love most about working at Networked Insights is the great combination of collaboration and the entrepreneurial spirit. I enjoy working with brilliant colleagues on strategic initiatives that make an impact on our business. At the same time, to be highly supported in "Thinking Big" is truly inspiring.
