    We are dscout. At our core, we are People Nerds. We empower our customers to meet the people who matter to them in the moments that matter most. Customer-obsessed companies like Lyft, Nike, IDEO, and REI use dscout to build better products and services because of people like you. We are building a smart and driven team in our Chicago HQ, and we would love for you to join us.

    We were founded in 2011 as an internal tool for the researchers at GravityTank. The team quickly realized the power behind conducting mobile in-context research. From this moment, dscout was internally incubated at GT's office until 2014 when dscout was officially incorporated and become a stand alone company. Since then, our growth has been astronomical. We have developed a base of fanatical users and that group grows month-after-month.

    Today, we stare down the challenge of scaling dscout - our products, our services, and our business. We are looking for team members who see the power behind our tools and want to help more companies become fanatical about their users. Now halfway through 2019, we stand at 80 employees excited about taking on this challenge.
