Job Title: Economist/Associate
Practice Area: Macroeconomics
Location: Washington, D.C.
Founded in 2001, Keybridge is a boutique economics and public policy consulting firm based in Washington, DC. We serve as economists, policy experts, and strategic advisers to a diverse clientele that includes Fortune 500 companies, global financial firms, federal government agencies, leading trade associations, non-profit organizations, and institutions that operate at the intersection of economics and public policy. Often our work is presented directly to business and government leaders, including CEOs, state governors, and organization leaders.
Our business is comprised of three practice areas: Macroeconomics, Public Policy, and Social Responsibility & Accountability. Within each of these workstreams, we provide our clients with a suite of analytical and advisory services, including economic modeling and data analytics, policy design and analysis, and strategic planning. We are known for our creative thinking and data-driven approach to addressing complex problems, as well as our ability to convert complex information into clear, accessible, and actionable insights. Keybridge takes pride in developing long-term relationships with clients that position us to operate as a natural extension of their organization and serve as trusted advisers on issues related to economics and public policy.
Keybridge benefits from the diversity of our staff's personal and professional experiences. At Keybridge you will find an active culture that engages in "lunch and learn" sessions on a broad range of topics and regularly holds robust firm-wide discussions about macroeconomic policy issues and public policy developments. We foster a supportive social network in which staff enjoy one another's company, and we regularly organize non-work social events and participate in group volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Keybridge also engages in pro bono work for deserving charities and organizations.
As an Economist/Associate, you will work with other members of the Macroeconomics Practice to manage and deliver analytical and consulting services to a variety of clients, including private companies, trade associations, non-profit organizations, and government entities.
