  • Performing job analyses, item development, and test scale and criterion development under the supervision of the Director of Workforce Science.
  • Conducting in-depth statistical research, utility analyses, and technical documentation writing related to the development, validation, and refinement of new workforce science tools, including realistic job previews, job simulations, problem-solving tests, biodata instruments, personality/workstyle/fit assessments, and post-hire data capture tools such as performance and engagement surveys.

2)         Education, aptitude and background

  • Master’s  or PhD in Industrial Psychology, Quantitative Methods/Statistics in Behavioral Science, or closely related field is required (PhD is highly desirable).

  • Understand the importance of changing direction when necessary, and making immediate adjustments to accommodate for a revised focus.


5)         Entrepreneurial

  • Focus on making decisions based on the highest return that can be achieved for the time that you put into solving a problem.
