Position title

Consultants at Coherent Economics will have the opportunity to use their accumulated skills and expertise on a daily basis to help our clients solve their most pressing economic and financial challenges. They will also learn how to collaborate with experts and clients, and how to manage projects and teams.

We take great pride in our culture. The entire Coherent Economics team worked together to develop our Values, and each new team member must agree to uphold them. Our Core Values guide the firm's philosophy, vision, and strategy, and our Workplace Values guide our daily actions. Together, these values define who we are as a firm and as professionals.

Among our Workplace Values, you will find critical behaviors such as "challenge, celebrate, and support each other," "every challenge is an opportunity to learn," and "offer candid, timely, and actionable feedback." As a Consultant at Coherent, you will be a beneficiary of these values—and you will learn how to help pay it forward as you train and mentor your team members.
