Remote Work:
Job Number:
Regulatory Economist

The Opportunity:

Critical decisions are made every single day in our government. What if you could use your skills to help them make informed decisions? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to know how to find and interpret the best data to give their clients the right answers. As a Regulatory Economist, you use your specialized technical and functional experience, and your attention to detail to develop insights, understanding, recommendations, and reports to give your client the actionable information and context they need. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to protect our national security and inform our nation's leaders.

As a Regulatory Economist on our team, you will leverage your understanding of international money laundering, threat finance, sanctions evasion, corruption and kleptocracy, and other illicit finance typologies to guide our clients’ regulatory and rulemaking processes to protect the U.S. financial system from illicit use. You will evaluate proposed regulations, develop economic impact assessment and data analysis processes, and contribute to public-facing rulemaking and notices of proposed rulemaking to communicate the potential impacts of financial regulations on the financial sector and small business community. To provide valuable regulatory impact insights, you will build economic models, identify appropriate government and non-government datasets, run statistical analyses, and serve as a subject matter expert on economic impacts of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations. You will also engage with government and private sector stakeholders, collaborate with Federal agencies, and work alongside fellow economists, Federal government attorneys, and senior client leadership to understand unique perspectives and communicate your specialized expertise.

As the authority in your area of expertise, your client will look to you for critical expertise in critical areas impacting the safety and stability of the U.S. financial system. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills in data analytics, research and analysis, analytical writing, briefing senior decision makers, sharing your methodologies with peers, and working throughout the interagency environment to address illicit finance risks to the United States.

We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you will have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our nation’s leaders and policymakers. 

Empower change with us.
