SkillSurvey seeks to add another full-time I/O Psychologist to
its Research & Development team. Our team works with the
world’s largest database of job reference feedback, and in close
collaboration with other SkillSurvey teams, in order to meet the
company’s business goals and product development
requirements. The nature of the company, and the products,
provide a great opportunity to make significant contributions not
only to the business, but also to the field of assessment.
Although the position is based in Princeton, NJ,
attendance is expected at weekly meetings in our headquarters just
west of Philadelphia, in Wayne, PA.
There is both a quantitative and a qualitative aspect to this
role. Specifically, quantitative data analysis and
interpretation will be critical to conduct validity studies in the
applied [client] setting, to support business development efforts,
and to drive product development activities. The successful
candidate will also be expected to engage in job analysis,
competency modeling and mapping, and item development.
In addition to research activities designed to attract and
retain customers, you will also be expected to represent
SkillSurvey to customers (both internal and external), prospects,
and other industry professionals. These types of activities
would be those that increase the exposure of our products and
services to the market, such as publications [white papers,
marketing-oriented summaries, journal articles] and presentations
to a wide variety of audiences [e.g., SIOP, IPAC, relevant industry
conferences, and customer groups].
