Job Description

The Amazon Economics Team is hiring Interns in Economics. We are looking for detail-oriented, organized, and responsible individuals who are eager to learn how to work with large and complicated data sets. Some knowledge of econometrics, as well as basic familiarity with Stata or R is necessary, and experience with SQL, UNIX, and Sawtooth would be a plus.

These are full-time positions at 40 hours per week, with compensation being awarded on an hourly basis. You will learn how to build data sets and perform applied econometric analysis at Internet speed collaborating with economists, data scientists and MBAʼs. These skills will translate well into writing applied chapters in your dissertation and provide you with work experience that may help you with placement.

Roughly 50% of research assistants from previous cohorts have converted to full time data science or economics employment at Amazon. If you are interested, send your CV, transcripts, and a cover letter to our mailing list at econ-internship@amazon.com.
