Dig Insights is an innovative and award-winning consumer insights and technology company. Started 10 years ago, Dig continues to be one of the fastest growing companies in Canada and has been listed as one of the most innovative insights companies globally for the past four years. Our success is due to our strong commitment to our clients, and the creativity and dedication of our entire team. Since the beginning, we have been focused on building the best consumer insights company and that means hiring people who are smart, creative, resourceful, and genuine. People who succeed at Dig question established practices and are passionate about helping our clients to move their businesses forward. They either bring a wealth of knowledge or are willing to learn. They are comfortable working in a fast moving, flat organization.

As we continue to grow, both geographically (with offices in Toronto and Chicago), and in our expertise (having launched our own SaaS platform called Upsiide) we are looking for people who want to join a high-growth and highly collaborative company.
