About Us

Our Story

Experiences are the building blocks of our life’s vocation. Jim Jacobs unwittingly arranged his blocks in a manner that laid the perfect foundation for Focus Insite. Having enjoyed success in the media and real estate industries, Jim was no stranger to the benefits of qualitative research, and initially became involved in the industry as a respondent. Before long, he was helping field studies and finally launched Focus Insite in 2016. 

Today, Focus Insite is a leader in qualitative market research recruitment, specializing in consumer, B2B, medical, patient & caregiver, and technical studies with sights set on being the go-to recruiting company for every industry.

Focus Insite recognizes that great customer experience begins with brand ambassadors—our team of qualified recruiters, project managers, and relationship managers. Because learning is a lifelong endeavor, we invest in our team, offering online courses through a variety of vendors. We want to hire the best, and we want our employees to be better off as a result of their experience at Focus Insite. These efforts are reflected in our positive corporate culture.

Passion for employee development is also one of the main drivers behind Focus Insite’s steady growth, including our unprecedented doubling in size during the 2020 pandemic.

Translation & Transcription are the latest services to be added to the Focus Insite repertoire. Our proprietary brands represent each of our specialty areas.
