Lexicon Branding develops category-defining names for the world's biggest and most innovative brands. Swiffer, Sonos, Pentium, Dasani, and Impossible Foods are just a few of the hundreds of successful product and company names we have created over the past 39 years.
We pride ourselves on an environment of creativity, problem solving, and thought leadership. Three qualities that we insist upon: curiosity, never settling for anything other than excellence, and a healthy dose of ambition.
As Director of Research you will lead Lexicon's research programs, develop methodologies to build on our category-leading approach, and deliver insights to clients. You will work closely with other departments at Lexicon including Creative, Account, and Linguistics, to help inform project strategy. And, ultimately, you will help inform critical decisions around branding and naming for the Fortune 100 companies and world class startups we work with.
