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. Strong econometric, data and programming skills (R and Python) are necessary, and experience with SQL and AWS tools 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 in a data intensive and science drive environment and will also collaborate with economists, scientists and business stakeholders. These skills will translate well into writing applied chapters in your dissertation and provide you with work experience that may help you with placement.
