• Statistician Freelancer

  • Overview

    Are you an expert in consumer choice modeling and market experiments? Are you a genius at statistically analyzing and interpreting data from surveys, data warehouses, and server logs? Can you predict the future statistically, and get it right most of the time? And can you explain important results to fast-moving executives in such a way that they know what to do – and want to do it? If so, we should talk. This is a freelance position with the ability to work remotely.




    First Law: Objects at rest tend to remain at rest. The same is true of people. At DRUM, our job is to get people to move. But random movement is pointless. Movement in rhythm with the goals of our clients, on the other hand, is the most valuable thing in the world. There’s an irresistible beat that gets brands noticed, gets people talking and, above all, gets results. No wonder so many great brands — like AT&T, Aflac, Carhartt, PayPal, March of Dimes and more — trust us to help take them where they want to go. We’re DRUM. Let’s dance




    If you’re not having any fun at work, you’re doing it wrong. Whether you’re in our Atlanta, Chicago or New York office, you’ll see for yourself: At DRUM, we love what we do. We’re focused, but not funless. Aggressive, but not ad-holes. After all, we believe in harmony. It’s there in everything we do, from our award-winning campaigns to our slightly less decorated bowling team. And it’s the reason our agency is recognized time and again, from Chief Marketer’s Top 200 Agencies to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplaces.
