It also involves partnering with our Researchers to help them understand how to use technology well in their jobs.  This latter responsibility demands a person with sufficient conceptual and intellectual abilities to engage effectively with some of the world’s most sophisticated thinkers in the areas of macroeconomics, econometrics and investment management.  The technology you will support is a highly specialized mix of custom and off-the-shelf systems designed to manage, analyze and visualize large quantities of economic, financial, and market data.  Our researchers are continuously expanding the breadth and depth of their work – and their technology needs are continuously advancing to support them. For that reason, this position requires a person with a high level of learning agility coupled with an insatiable desire to learn new things.

• An undergraduate degree in a technology-related discipline (such as Computer Science or Engineering) coupled with experience in business or economics; or a degree in a business-related field plus professional experience in a technologyspecific job
