About The Position


Intensity is a vibrant professional services firm that applies expertise in economics, accounting, finance, and statistics to solve complex problems that organizations face in both the courtroom and the marketplace.  As we continue to expand our team, we are looking to add self-motivated professionals seeking an opportunity that offers flexible roles under a flat operating structure and promotes growth in a merit-based environment.  Each team member is given as much responsibility as they are willing to take on.  You will not be restricted to a set development track—rather, your ambitions and capabilities will determine how you grow and advance.  Our projects involve high-stakes litigation matters that provide an opportunity to work closely with prestigious law firms, Fortune 500 companies, and high-growth corporations.

Intensity offers generous compensation along with a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance, disability coverage, paid holidays, flexible paid time off, and a 401(k)/profit sharing plan.

As a talent-driven company, we welcome economists to work in a hybrid structure at any of our offices located in San Diego, Dallas, and New York City, as well as fully remote in a U.S. location, if preferred.
