Why We Need This Position
We want our clients to be happy. And our clients are happy if the people who use their products are happy. The best way to bring about all that happiness is to find out exactly what those people really want in the first place, so that we can innovate to meet their needs. To do that, we need to talk to them and gather information about what they want. That's where you come in. 
 
Who Were Looking For
You are insatiably curious, and your working motto is knowledge is power. You love the prospect of gathering relevant data and organizing it in such a way that it informs the creative process and helps bring about innovative solutions to complex problems. At TEAGUE, the Research Intern serves as a crucial link, doing rigorous exploration and analysis and then communicating that to designers. On any typical day, you may find yourself working to define answerable research questions and developing protocols; using a variety of qualitative methods to come up with actionable insight; and collecting, analyzing, and preparing research findings to present to various audiences. You're not only a crack researcher, but a solution-oriented type who's equally capable of fruitful collaboration and working effectively on your own. You don't shy away from ambiguity indeed, you relish it as an opportunity to think critically and creatively. If the idea of contributing your talents to a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, designers, and strategists helping to build a brighter future appeals to you and you've got the kind of sensationally organized mind we need we'd like to hear what you've got to say.
