Careers at Industry Super Australia

Data Analyst/Programmer


Industry Super Australia (ISA) takes a leadership role in policy making and public debate on behalf of Australia’s Industry SuperFunds.

Everything we do is driven by the idea that working people deserve a dignified and comfortable retirement. We believe that a key factor in achieving this is through policy settings that put the interests of members first. ISA plays an important role in the not-for-profit sector, promoting super fund members’ best interests and securing improved regulation of financial services, including superannuation and financial advice, through research and advocacy on public policy.

With a growing demand for in-depth economic research, our economics and financial markets unit has one or two positions for the right graduate or professional to join our Melbourne office team.

The right candidates will hold Honours or higher degrees in Computer Science or Mathematics or a related field of study, and have up to 1-2 years' relevant experience, ideally with some background in programming, academic research or consulting.

Candidates must have experience in R, VBA or Matlab, along with high-level Excel skills.

Experience in any of the following areas will be looked upon favourably:

  • Economy-wide modelling;
  • Econometrics;
  • Economic forecasting;
  • Macroeconomics;
  • Flow-of-funds modelling; and
  • Advanced Excel skills.

You will also need to be a team contributor and have enthusiasm, good communication skills, be highly motivated and member-focused.

An attractive salary package will be commensurate with the applicant's experience and qualifications.
