VP - Research & Analytics

Job Locations US-Chicago

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’re looking for someone to join our team as SVP of Research & Insights. You will lead our Research and Data Insights teams who combine external macro data with our extensive operational and financial data to identify, prioritize, and influence LivCor’s investment strategy, market selection, resource allocation, and operational priorities. Our scale and resources give us a significant competitive advantage. Unlocking that advantage requires a leader who inspires their team to solve complex problems and drive value. The over-arching goal as a team is to move LivCor from descriptive to prescriptive analysis.


Specifically, you will lead two teams:

Data Insights: Focus on asset level data. Using demographic, migration, financial, operational, and other datasets to understand and predict investment and operational performance.


Research: Focus on market level data. Using external datasets to understand market demand drivers, migration patterns, investor preferences, and economic realities to drive market selection and asset preference.

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 motivatedenergetic, and organized
  • Gumby. Things change.

What you should have:

  • A love for solving problems.
  • Kindness, humility, honesty, and resilience. Growing quickly is hard. We want to do hard things with good people.
  • 15+ years of progressive, relevant experience leading data and analytic initiatives within a highly sophisticated organization. Real estate experience is helpful but not required.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills; able to adjust style depending on the audience, and distill complex concepts into simple, actionable insights.
  • Deep knowledge and demonstrated application of predictive modeling, natural language processing, time-series, and spatial analysis using common programming languages.
  • Experience with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques.
  • Demonstrated history of sourcing and combining disparate and esoteric datasets to create value.
  • Track record of building high performing teams

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 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.
