Director of Insights


Our partners globally recognize the power of our insights, Captify’s actionable insights play a crucial role for our clients on a daily basis. To support this, we have dedicated insights teams in each market (Sight) whose vision is to provide our clients with high-value insights that genuinely enable them to increase their customers, the understanding of their marketing effectiveness, and therefore refine their strategies for success. Captify achieves this by uniquely being able to explore dimensions including intent signals, consumer interests, product perception, inner life moments and direct and indirect influences.

They will be responsible for leadership and direction that drives both retention and revenue growth through the delivery of high-quality insights to our clients.

A proportion of this is automated via our platform, however, there is a significant opportunity to conduct exploratory analysis, develop and test hypotheses and continually innovate through curiosity as no one client is the same. Visualization is critical, we are firm believers of being able to story tell and inspire clients.
