Job Description

LivCor, a Blackstone portfolio company, is a real estate asset management business specializing in multi-family housing. Formed in 2013 and headquartered in Chicago, LivCor is currently responsible for a portfolio of over 400 Class A and B properties comprising more than 150,000 units in markets across the United States.

Our business is focused on making real estate more valuable. But for us, it’s more than that. It’s people first, community always. It’s a life-filled career, not just a career-filled life. It’s doing good work, with good humans, and making a difference. It’s excellence in all its forms. Ultimately, we create great places to work, live, and grow. We do that by focusing on leaving people – and places – better than we found them. Whew! Still with us? Cool. Let’s talk about where you’d fit in.

We are looking for a passionate and curious Quantitative Research Analyst to join our Research & Analytics team. LivCor Research & Analytics uses advanced analytics to make us better real estate investors and operators. We focus on data-driven questions that matter to our business that can be solved through the application of data analysis, statistics, and computer programming. We develop insights through alternative datasets and analytical methods to help fill in gaps in our understanding of specific assets, markets, and macroeconomic themes. We leverage geospatial, demographic, and economic data, as well as advanced analytics to evaluate live real estate deals across sectors and geographies.

The ideal candidate has experience and interest in the entire data lifecycle—from working with diverse sets of structured and unstructured datasets to developing front-end visualization applications to showcase data findings. The individual needs to be passionate about the application of data to drive business impact, and intellectually curious about solving real-world questions. Working for one of the world’s largest owners of real estate, you will have the opportunity to raise the bar for physical asset investing.

Only read further if you are:

  • Kind
  • Humble
  • Honest
  • Relentless
  • Smart with Heart

You should be:

  • Authentic. You do you. Together, we’ll do something amazing.
  • A passionate person with a love for real estate and investing; and believes that helping others win is a noble cause, essential to our success.
  • An excellent team player who enjoys working with others and has strong interpersonal skills.
  • Highly motivated, energetic, and organized.

What you will do:

  • Analyze the drivers of asset performance to help the firm make better investment decisions.
  • Build analytical models to help us understand and forecast relevant metrics for our portfolio.
  • Craft and execute queries as needed for data.
  • Identify and study macroeconomic themes and understand what they mean for our business.
  • Prepare and present visualizations that effectively communicate trends and predictions.
  • Draft opinions on data-driven conclusions that will be shared with executive leadership.
  • Develop a deep understanding of multifamily investment, finance, and operations.
  • Design, develop, and maintain business intelligence solutions and applications.

What you should have:

  • 2+ years in a data-driven professional setting analyzing complex datasets.
  • 2+ years with object-oriented programming languages (Python, etc.).
  • 2+ years developing front-end visualizations using HTML, CSS, JS, React, or similar.
  • 2+ years using SQL to query data, create views and build reports.
  • 3+ years using Excel, Power BI and/or Tableau to create visuals and executive-level presentations.
  • A love for solving problems.
  • Bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Strong foundation in statistics and mathematics.
  • Demonstrated ability to conduct independent research and analysis.
  • Experience in geospatial analysis, economic research, or real estate data analysis.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

What we offer:

We know that if we take care of our team everything else will fall into place. We aren’t perfect, but we will try to set very clear expectations, always let you know where you stand, and do everything in our power to help you get where you want to go.

Our culture and values matter to us. A lot. We’re definitely not serious but we take this stuff seriously, if you get what we mean. We want a place that is an ego-free zone. A place where good people do good things together. It shouldn’t be rocket science in workplaces, but for some reason it still is. We’re absolutely determined to be different, and we think we’re doing a pretty good job at it. We have a CEO who makes fun of himself, and who will encourage you to tell him when he is wrong. In fact, he needs people to – we all do. Supportive challenge is good, it’s how we get better. We like getting better. We also love diversity, of all kinds. We need people who look, sound, speak, love, and exist differently from one another. This isn’t at the end of this paragraph because it’s an afterthought. It’s SO important to us we want it to stand out.

Right. On to the technical stuff that we know matters to you. We offer competitive pay that is commensurate with the market and relevant experience, and a full slate of benefits that includes a generous 401(k) matching plan.

If any of this sounds interesting, then maybe we are a fit. Life is too short to work with people you don’t like. So, whatever you do, don’t make that mistake.
