Looking for a fun, fast-paced, and challenging work environment? Collaborative? Energetic? Self-starter? We have the job for you.

Who are we and what do we do?

We are a growing business of about 85 dedicated employees, located in San Diego near Old Town and Mission Bay. At TrendSource, we create an environment which encourages people to take initiative and pursue the experiences they need in order to grow in their careers. While we take our roles seriously, humor is welcomed, and a casual dress code is permitted. Check us out on Instagram #lifeattrendsource.


From humble beginnings in 1989 as a mystery shopping company, TrendSource has grown into a full-service market research, data collection and strategic consulting firm for companies in multiple industries, including manufacturing, food service, and retail, both local and nationwide. Additionally, TrendSource offers compliance audits for risk management. We have a network of Independent Contractors (Field Agents) that collect this data through various methodologies such as mystery shopping, survey collection, and onsite inspections.


What is a Project Coordinator?

Project Coordinators work on teams of 5-12 people, and are responsible for the execution of data collection through the use of Independent Contractors (Field Agents). This is achieved by recruiting (calling, emailing, and texting current and potential agents), scheduling and prioritizing projects, and coordinating Field Agents for individual projects. This includes providing follow-up and coaching, and ensuring completion of programs by the set deadline.  Project Coordinators manage multiple projects at once and adhering to strict deadlines.


Is this you?

We are looking for candidates who will embrace our core values of diligence, passion, openness, integrity, innovation, teamwork, and accountability. This means:

  • We are all responsible to deliver the best possible product to our clients
  • We communicate with our co-workers, Field Agents, and clients clearly and respectfully
  • When we see something is wrong, we speak up, and try to solve the problem
  • We admit our mistakes but don’t dwell on them; instead we use them as growth opportunities
  • We embrace change and view it as an opportunity to improve and grow
  • We actively pursue personal and professional growth through self-directed or formal education

A background in any of the following is helpful, but not required:

  • Customer Service
  • Project Management
  • Recruiting
  • Compliance and Auditing
  • Marketing or Market Research


What's in it for you....

  • New Hire Training: We will train you on our internal systems to ensure that you will be successful when it’s time to work on your own. You will be supported by both your team and our Organizational Development group.
  • Servant Leadership: Your manager will collaborate with you to help you succeed by providing regular check-ins and feedback.
