Engagement Manager

Your role
Are you an analytic thinker? Do you know how to develop innovative solutions? UBS Evidence Lab is looking to hire a junior engagement manager to join our highly specialized group within Global Research. Applicants should be comfortable with a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment and should enjoy the challenge of working on a high-performance team. Candidates should have a background in financial markets or investment banking, with preferred prior experience in investment research whether on the buy-side or sell-side.

The successful candidate will work closely with internal and external analyst teams across all sectors, to understand the key debates and information needs for individual companies. The engagement manager will also work closely with various teams within Evidence Lab to design and implement unique customized projects and solutions, including but not limited to geospatial analysis, social media tracking, app analytics, pricing strategy, shipping and customs data analysis, data science and advanced modeling techniques, quantitative market research, focus groups, and many more. The engagement manager will be responsible for analyzing and interpreting the results of the individual studies and coaching investment analysts on the interpretation of the findings.

The role will also include liaising with external clients on their use and needs for Evidence Lab content.

It is a unique opportunity to get a breadth of exposure to not only a spectrum of investment debates across sectors and regions, but also cutting edge alternative analytics increasingly being used to evaluate the markets.

Your team
You'll be working in UBS Evidence Lab in New York. We are a highly specialized primary research team within the Global Research Department who work closely together to ensure the effective development of an internal capability across UBS's offices in Europe, Asia, and North America. The group works closely with the global publishing analyst teams to understand the debates and themes that are central to their markets, sectors, and companies within their coverage, and design highly differentiated and in-depth analytical projects to further the investment debates and answer pivotal questions for use in published research content.
