BEworks is a purpose-driven organization. Behavioral science insights and the scientific method provide a powerful means of reasoning. We believe that this will lead policy makers and business leaders to better decision-making processes that are beneficial to society. Our projects provide innovative solutions to complex problems. We tackle classic marketing challenges such as product development, acquisition, retention, pricing, loyalty, brand and value proposition development, and up/cross-selling; we optimize processes such as client onboarding, collection, and risk management; and we help with employee decision-making and motivation (compensation models).
BEworks is seeking an Associate who subscribes to the vision of the importance of scientific thinking and is keen to apply it to real-world challenges.
