ABOUT US | HR&A Advisors, Inc. (HR&A) is an employee-owned company advising public, private, non-profit, and philanthropic clients on how to increase opportunity and advance quality of life in cities.
We believe in creating vital places, building more equitable and resilient communities, and improving people’s lives.
From Brooklyn to London, Medellin to Hong Kong, we have guided hundreds of clients in transforming real estate and economic development concepts, and public infrastructure, first into actionable plans and then into job-producing, community-strengthening assets.
Our clients include real estate owners and investors, hospitals and universities, cultural institutions and philanthropies, community development organizations, and governments.
HR&A has offices in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Raleigh, and Washington D.C. We come from diverse backgrounds, have a breadth of lived experience, and share a passion for cities. We are former city officials, executive directors, planners, lawyers, architects, and economists.
THE ROLE | We are seeking candidates for a Senior Analyst position based in an HR&A office in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Raleigh, or Washington D.C. which serve clients nationally. Our analytical staff form the foundation of our team-oriented and collaborative structure and help to drive our data-driven approach to city building.
Senior Analysts are mid-level professionals with 5 – 8 years of professional experience and own the substance of our client work products. They are responsible for complex modeling and analysis, program design, coordination with partner firms, and preparation of client deliverables and proposals.

Senior 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. Senior Analysts often play a managerial role, directing Research Analysts and Analysts on task assignments and even providing training.
The position provides 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. Candidates for this role will be given opportunities to work on a range of projects, with an initial emphasis on Broadband & Digital Equity work. Our Broadband & Digital Equity team serves as an extension of state and local governments’ broadband and digital equity efforts to design and manage large-scale programs to close the digital divide, funded largely by historic investments from the federal government and collaborations with philanthropy.

Our new team members will learn quickly, possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, be hyper-organized, and be able to manage multiple assignments at once. They will think independently, act entrepreneurially, and pay attention to the details. Ideal Senior Analysts will bring a demonstrated capacity for leadership, critical thinking, and creativity.
COMPENSATION | Senior Analyst candidates should have a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree preferred, and 5 – 8 years professional experience.
The base salary range for this position is $101,000 – $114,500. Where an offer falls inside the pay range is dependent on experience.
