Manager - Real Estate Economist

Job Locations US-IL-Chicago | US-NY


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 economist to join our Research & Analytics team. LivCor Research & Analytics uses advanced analytics and statistical methods to make us better real estate investors and business operators. We focus on data-driven questions that matter to our business and 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.


In other words, we sit at the intersection of quantitative and investment analysis. You will have the opportunity to work with directly with our fellow portfolio companies and Blackstone. If you enjoy fast-paced, stimulating, quantitative work with a tangible business impact, we may be a good fit for you.

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 even includes things like paid parental leave.


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.


The LivCorian Values:

  1. Be you. Be Real. Be Open. You do you. Together, we will do something amazing.
  2. Care, Always. We don’t want to let anyone down.
  3. Courageously Curious. We love to learn, even when it hurts.
  4. Help Others Win, Be A Good Neighbor. This is about ‘We, not Me.’
  5. Relentless Hustle, Heart & Humility. Work hard. Be Kind. Make Better.
