Why Dragonfly

Roles

Before you contact us, it is important to understand that we are a boutique consumer insights firm with qualitative research at the core of what we do. We are NOT into quantitative research, and definitely NOT into equity/industry research. For better understanding of what we do, we suggest you  review sample projects that we have worked on.

 

In letter as well as spirit, Dragonfly is a flat organisation structure. From Managing partner to junior most employee, whatever titles they carry, everyone is a passionate hands on researcher to begin with.  Everyone's primary responsibility is to deliver sharp research and insights, and then there are some  additional responsibilities depending on role. 

 

Broadly there are 3 levels levels of hierarchy. Yet due to nature of organisation and work, even a fresher will not only interact but work on a day to day basis with partners at topmost level. 

  • Leadership (Partners)  - responsible for guiding strategic projects & generating business. 

  • Management (Managers)  - responsible for delivering end to end projects for multiple clients. 

  • Researcher- responsible for specific deliverables through the lifecycle of the project.
