In this role, you will spearhead Medley’s coverage of the 2024 election – producing short but thoroughly researched reports, podcasts, and webinars – to provide our clients with a predictive edge.

Beyond the election, you will be the go-to person in our US team for intelligence and analysis in economic, budgetary, and trade policy.

Media appearances and guest columns are encouraged.

  • A genuine interest in politics and policy and, ideally, granular knowledge of polling and skill in political data analysis. 
  • The ability to write clearly and boil down complexity into a forward-looking and tradeable market “call”. 
  • The confidence and knowledge to guide clients in financial markets through policy and politics.

Job Duties

  • Develop and maintain a source network inside the administration, Congress, agencies, business organizations, and presidential campaigns.
  • Analyze national and swing-state polling and work with a data specialist to develop new products for our clients.   
  • Write or record snappy, market-relevant reports, podcasts, and webinars.
