Who We Are

SPINS is the leading provider of retail consumer insights, analytics, and consulting for the Natural, Organic and Specialty Products Industry. We transform raw data into intelligent and actionable business solutions that enable consumers to pursue wellness. At SPINS, we believe data is important, but our people are the real differentiator. That’s why we maintain a culture that is focused on collaboration, flexibility, and open communication.

A key part of our approach to data is our Product Intelligence platform. Product Intelligence deconstructs on-and-off-label product information, translates the data into a common industry language, and outputs relevant insights in the form of clear product attributes well recognized by shoppers (for ex. plant-based, heart-healthy, keto, low sugar, diabetes-friendly, minority-owned business, no milk, etc.). This creates a source of truth dataset that documents everything that's meaningful about a product to both consumers and to retail/brand teams. Retailers and CPG brands use Product Intelligence for all sorts of use cases, including to analyze the market, spot trends, power personalization and next-gen merchandising strategies, help their shoppers find the best products for their health and lifestyle needs, and relay the detailed product information that today's shoppers rely on when making purchasing decisions. We are searching for a Senior Data Analyst to join our Product intelligence team.
