Project Manager



Blue Heron Research Partners is looking to hire a project manager in New York (with the opportunity to work remotely) who has a natural intellectual curiosity, strong communication skills, attention to detail, and the ability to lead small research teams.


Who we are:

Blue Heron is rapidly growing research firm that conducts qualitative due diligence on behalf of institutional investors and corporate clients. We apply the fundamentals of investigative and business journalism -- detailed interviews and meticulous public records searches -- to uncover insights into executives, corporate strategy, competitive landscape, and customer experience.


Who you are:

  • Experience in journalism, business intelligence, technical writing, and/or research.
  • 7+ years experience managing small groups.
  • Comfortable assertively and proactively leading small teams to a project's completion.
  • Adept at giving constructive feedback to colleagues.
  • Skilled editor and writer with ability to deliver well-written clear business reports.
  • Keen attention to detail while working on a deadline.
  • Capable and quick study of computer systems and basic project management software.


What you'll do:

  • Oversee primary research due diligence projects -- directing an investigative team as it gathers business intelligence for institutional investors and corporate clients.
  • Manage project team, including associates, editors, researchers, and client contact.
  • Monitor researchers to ensure delivery on project goals, scope of work, and areas of inquiry.
  • Guide and assist associates as they gather background research and collect sources.
  • Liaise with research and database teams to increase the depth of due diligence and adjust to changing client directions.
  • Problem solve when a project has stalled to find creative solutions and remain on track.
  • Assertively and proactively manage projects, rather than passively wait for client prompts.  
  • Review/edit researcher interviews and write executive summaries. Deliver constructive feedback regarding lines of inquiry.
  • Serve as secondary client contact when necessary, including written and oral communication.
  • Comfortable and effective when communicating with clients surrounding project launch, midstream and completion.
  • Ability to enforce all compliance guidelines, including those specific to individual clients, throughout the process.
  • Safeguard against poor source integrity and related research information.



  • Approximately $75,000+ base, dependent on experience, plus bonus.
  • 401k matching
  • Health Care
