The Research Department at Dimensional is integral both in the successful day-to-day functioning of the firm and in developing Dimensional’s long-term strategy. The team produces high-quality, thought-leadership research on investments and financial markets that is of interest to clients. The team also leads the development of the firm’s investment approach, the application of that approach through portfolio management and trading, and the implementation of technology solutions that make the investment process more efficient.
Investment Analytics and Data (IAD) is part of the Research Department within Dimensional. Data and data analysis are at the underpinnings of how Dimensional constructs and manages portfolios and works to provide the best investment experience possible for our clients.

The Data Distribution team seeks analysts or associates (role and compensation will depend on relevant experience) capable of supporting key initiatives underpinning our daily implementation process. The work is team-based and involves architecting systems, building systems and processes, manual and automated testing of data services, and performing and explaining ad hoc analysis around portfolio construction and explanation of portfolio performance. Success in this role, including career progression, will be driven by successfully developing and maintaining the analytical investment data tools and processes for internal and external users, and by enhancing operational efficiencies at Dimensional to deliver value-added investment solutions to our clients.
