Compass Lexecon is seeking Analyst candidates for its San Francisco Bay Area office in Oakland, California, a twelve minute subway ride from downtown San Francisco. As part of our team-oriented approach, Analysts work closely with staff economists to provide in-depth economic analysis of relevant issues in each matter. While each project presents a different set of challenges, Analysts can generally expect to perform extensive data analyses, conduct industry research, and review case evidence.
The data and research skills gained at Compass Lexecon serve as highly effective preparation for graduate studies, particularly in the fields of economics, business, law, and public policy. Compass Lexecon Analysts have gone on to pursue graduate studies at programs such as:
– Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Management, MBA
– Harvard Law School, JD
– UC Berkeley, Economics, PhD
– New York University, MPP
Compass alumni have also gone on to positions at Google, Facebook, Pandora, and Hotwire.
Ideal candidates will have or be working towards a bachelor’s degree in economics or a related field (e.g., math, business, public policy, statistics), a strong quantitative background, research experience, proven teamwork skills, exemplary organizational abilities, and excellent oral and written communication skills.
Analysts are responsible for assisting in the creation of expert reports and white papers authored in the context of litigation or policy decisions. Key responsibilities include conducting research and summarizing evidence; cleaning and compiling raw data; conducting analysis with Stata, Excel, and QGIS mapping software; and creating charts and graphs that illustrate the economics behind each case.
