About Intent HQ

Intent HQ's mission is to help organisations have more genuine relationships with their customers by using data and machine learning to understand them on a human level. We're a well-funded scale-up business, having raised £30m from several notable PE investors.

We've had an initial focus in the telecommunications sector, landing some of the world's leading telecommunications brands including O2 in the UK, and Verizon in the US.

Our clients typically have tens of millions of customers and billions of interaction events each day. We developed our customer analytics platform to make it quick and simple for analysts to interact with this data, even at such enormous scale, and integrate the insights into their sales, marketing and customer care teams. One client has seen £26m additional annual revenue growth as a result of Intent HQ.

The Intent HQ platform is unique because we've focused on understanding and processing this interaction data. We do the hard-specialised work leaving our clients free to focus on integrating the insight into their business.

The Opportunity

Intent HQ is an exciting place to work. We are 75-people strong, and growing, with offices in London, Barcelona and New York. You will have the opportunity to be part of a fast-growing element of our business in the US region, and work with global leaders in the telecoms industry.
