WebsiteNew Story Charity

New Story is looking for a detail oriented Research Associate to help gather data for special projects. As a dynamic researcher you’ll work across departments on research projects ranging from a quantitative dive into the global housing market to a qualitative inquiry into organizations building housing for the world’s poor to an ongoing focus on advancements in home design and materials. You’ll work closely with multiple members of our team on a variety of interesting research topics. You’ll be helping us impact more families and homes that we could ever do alone and deepen our understanding of how best to tackle global homelessness. This is tedious detail-oriented work but will yield a substantial impact.
