Locus Analytics is pioneering a systems approach to economics. Our patented Functional Information System (FIS) is an industry classification system that provides a structured, integrated approach to capturing the relationships that drive economies. We unify industry, labor, and product data with multi-attribute tags that highlight relationships beyond conventional industry boundaries and across traditional barriers between these data types. Our data structures power enhanced peer, competitor, and supply chain analysis, and highlight the dynamics between workforce and industry trends.
For this summer’s internship, we are looking for curious, creative, team-oriented undergraduates from a variety of academic disciplines. A background in economics is neither necessary nor expected; successful interns have studied fields ranging from engineering and comparative literature to mathematics and philosophy. The only prerequisites are intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and a strong interest in learning how our economy functions.
- Utilize our Functional Information System to create custom taxonomies that structure economic data for a variety of use cases, including investment, insurance, B2B search, and community analysis
- Develop and refine methodologies for tagging economic entities with related attributes
Relevant backgrounds may include:
- Library sciences
- Information sciences
- Computational linguistics
- Database management
- Copy editing
Interns are not required to have any specific technical experience
