Meet Julie Norvaisas, VP of Research at dscout

February 28, 2024

We are lucky to have so many wonderful sponsors of this year’s Advancing Research conference–and we thought you might like to get to know them better! We’ve asked all of them some questions that get at the heart of why they’re passionate about user research and ResearchOps, what it’s like to work with them, and what makes their products and services special to research professionals.

Rosenfeld Media: Why are you sponsoring this year’s Advancing Research?

Julie Norvaisas:
dscout was founded with the idea of advancing research at its core, and this idea is at the heart of how we build our products and our business. We want to support and contribute to the spaces where candid, forward-thinking conversations are taking place, as we co-create our future.

Rosenfeld Media: What excites you about research and/or research operations?

Julie Narvaisas:
Everything! We are People Nerds above all – your partner in scaling human insights to make a more human tomorrow , both through our products and through our People Nerds platform, where so many from our community come to share their ideas and learn from each other. What excites us most right now is our industry’s evolution into new territories and technologies.

Rosenfeld Media: What types of value and benefits do you/your product bring to the practice and our community?

Julie Narvaisas:
dscout is where companies come to see why. See why people make the decisions they do. Why they buy what they buy or click what they click. Our experience research platform helps you capture high-quality human insights from in-context, media-rich moments with flexible and powerful research tools. Across the entire lifecycle of research – from recruitment and fielding, to participant management, analysis and ensuring the impact of your work – dscout simplifies and streamlines the whole process end-to-end to help you focus on what matters: running meaningful, trustworthy research. We now have products that include Diary for deep, longitudinal studies, Live for moderated interviews, Media Surveys for quick-turn media-rich studies, and Usability for robust evaluative studies. We are also well known for our quality Scouts and sophisticated recruitment tools.

Rosenfeld Media: What else should our community know about you?

Julie Narvaisas:
We’re in it together and are focused on being way more than a tool in a toolstack. The community building and human service component of dscout is a unique part of our value. Customers know our people by name. It’s about a relationship that spans years. It’s a mindset. It’s how we show up. It’s how we, as both a team and a product, work with fellow People Nerds to help them do the best research they can.
