ABOUT US | HR&A Advisors, Inc. (HR&A) is an industry-leading real estate, economic development, and public policy consulting firm that helps create more equitable, resilient, and dynamic communities. Our work turns vision into action through rigorous analysis, strategy development, and implementation planning. HR&A professionals come from a variety of backgrounds; we are former city officials, lawyers, planners, architects, and economists. We are passionate about increasing the vitality of urban life.

HR&A is proud to be an employee-owned company and is committed to building a diverse workforce while centering issues of equity and inclusion in the work that we do. In 2020, we convened an Anti-Racism Task Force to lead the development of internal equity initiatives and strategies to incorporate equity more effectively into our client work; this work is ongoing.

THE ROLE | Our analytical staff form the foundation of our team-oriented and collaborative structure and help to drive our data-driven approach to city building.

  • market analysis
  • case study research
  • econometric modeling
  • community engagement
  • preparation of real estate pro formas for a range of uses and public-private structures, and
  • public policy analysis.

Analysts also help prepare written reports, presentations in PowerPoint, and Excel models for clients, as well as firm marketing materials and proposals for new projects.

The positions provide significant opportunities for growth and diversity within the role as individual project portfolios change. HR&A staff are often generalists but have the opportunity to specialize over time. Many of HR&A’s senior staff started as Analysts.

EXPERIENCE REQUIRED | Successful candidates will possess strong skills in both quantitative and qualitative analysis, a passion for urban development and policy, and a deep curiosity about the challenges and opportunities facing cities.

They must possess excellent written and verbal communication skills; proficiency with PowerPoint, Excel, and Word; and the ability to manage multiple assignments at once.

The most successful candidates will show a capacity for leadership, the ability to think critically and creatively, and the potential for professional growth.

Analyst candidates should have a Master’s Degree, or a Bachelor’s Degree, with a focus on economics, urban planning, business, public policy, real estate, or other closely related fields, and two to four years of relevant full-time experience.

COMPENSATION | The starting salary for this position is $77,300. We offer competitive compensation packages, based on qualifications and experience. We are an employee-owned company, meaning you will have the opportunity to benefit from the firm’s growth over time through participation in our Employee Stock Options Plan. Each year, the firm will contribute funds to this long-term wealth-building account, and may make contributions to other retirement accounts.
