About Us:

Narrative is innovating the monetization and acquisition of data. Data acquisition historically has been opaque and cumbersome to both acquire and normalize in a way that is usable for all use cases/needs a company might have for the data; at Narrative, we’re making the most useful, most specific, deduplicated data relevant to buyers available in the preferred data format.

About You:

You are a quick-minded, solutions-oriented problem-solver who wants to be surrounded by similar minded people and build a transformative product and business. You don’t like coming into work and dealing with the same problems over and over...nor being told exactly what to do and exactly how to do it. You embrace ambiguity and love the thought of what you do today might not be what you do tomorrow.
