Department Summary

The goal of the Research department is to fundamentally understand how the global economy works. Embedded within the Research department is a uniquely talented team that builds the tools that allow our macro economists to conduct their research and understand the world’s economies at a level we believe no other firm is capable of. These tools tackle problems from data ingestion and storage, to data visualization to signal creation.  To achieve this goal, we require a first-rate development ecosystem as part of our hybrid cloud platform.  Thus, we’re investing in building an AWS-specific engineering team.
