ANALYST: AUCTION DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT


Job Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with outstanding academic performance and demonstrated analytical skills available to start immediately.


Specific Responsibilities

  • Analyzing complex auction rules; understanding auction design
  • Collaborating with game theorists in the elaboration of a strategy playbook and supporting analysis
  • Creating modeling tools for real-time bid analysis
  • Setting up the war room and performing live bid entry during an auction
  • Meeting and presenting models to client senior management


Sample projects include designing and managing spectrum auctions, electricity procurement auctions, and advertising auctions. For example, current Analysts played a key role as part of the bidding strategy teams advising two large telecoms in recent Indian 3G and German 4G spectrum auctions.

Although the Analyst may work remotely, the role requires a large amount of travel, as many projects typically take place abroad. We work in small teams, on-site, with clients so we seek team-players with good interpersonal skills.


Qualifications

  • Excellent grades required.
  • Some familiarity with Visual Basic and databases is helpful.
  • Willingness and ability to travel domestically and internationally

  2. The names of two or three references (and their contact information). At least one reference must be someone whom you have worked for as a research assistant or someone who has supervised your empirical work.
