Innovation Consultant

New York

Fahrenheit 212, now in partnership with frog, is a global innovation, strategy and design firm. We work to define innovation strategies and develop products, services, and experiences that create sustainable, profitable growth for our clients. During normal circumstances, we have a team of sixty working out of our bright and modern office in downtown Manhattan; due to the pandemic, we’re temporarily working remotely from all over the US. Through this transition, we’ve managed to preserve the fast-paced, creative, and collaborative nature of our working culture.

  • Writing and optimizing concise and compelling research concepts,
  • Stimulating and inspiring cross-functional teams – both internally and externally,
