Pilotly is the first self-service insights platform for media content- we make complex research simple, fast and cost effective. Through our interactive video platform, we are able to collect detailed consumer feedback rapidly from specific target audiences, and then process the data using our A.I. algorithms to surface valuable insights to our clients. We’re in a unique position to completely change the consumer insights landscape affecting culture around the world, because, after all, the most influential communications leverage video. Help us become the platform of records for every organization, small to large, that needs to optimize the outcome of their video.

Every day we’re collecting hundreds of thousands of data points from our research studies. Whether it’s a response to a question, a user interaction with our video experience or an implicit activity we derive insight from, there is always data being collected during a Pilotly experience. While we process this data to surface insights for clients, there is a bigger picture opportunity here. We can look at data across industries to surface market trends, identify new performance indicators that leverage our depth of respondent data and match our 1st party with 3rd party data to produce new valuable insights.

Using your background in math, statistics and computer science, we’re excited for you to turn our millions of consumer data points into a playground of valuable information for our clients.
