Washington D.C. | February 10 – HIT Strategies, the nation’s leading millennial and minority-owned public opinion research company, has attracted eight new hires across its research and communications departments.  

Senior Data Manager Jake Rubinstein is among the fresh faces who will use his campaign and polling expertise to lead HIT’s data department. The team also added two research managers: John Rodriguez, an experienced data researcher, community organizer, and campaign leader, and Evan Welty, who has made his career working for progressive organizations and campaigns.  

Courtney Jemison and Ross Miletich joined the growing research team as senior analysts. Courtney’s role with HIT will focus on the political behaviors and attitudes of people of color. Ross, a campaign stalwart, will use his background as a political consultant to assist with HIT’s public opinion research. The research team also added two recent graduates: Erica Tebbs of the University of Florida and Audrey Egler of North Carolina State University. Both will assist the team with document creation and focus group support. Finally, HIT’s Communications expanded as well, adding recent Vanderbilt University alumnus Daniel Gulotta to help with earned media outreach.  

 “We are securing some of the brightest political minds, all of whom are incredibly motivated to fulfill HIT’s mission to uplift the voices of people underrepresented in public opinion research, said Terrance Woodbury and Roshni Nedungadi. “We are quickly approaching a consequential mid-term election in which young voters and voters of color will decide the margin of victory. HIT’s diverse team with proven experience and cultural understanding of these communities make them especially prepared to meet this challenge.”
