Company Information

The Economist Group is a global media and information-services company that exists to champion progress. Our brands areThe Economist, Economist Impact, Economist Intelligence and Economist Education. We provide individuals and organisations with the expertise, insights and perspective to press forward.

The Economist makes sense of a changing world. With rigorous reporting, in-depth analysis and global perspective, we explain today’s most important events and seek to discern the trends that will shape tomorrow. At the core of everything we do is our independence.

Economist Impact combines the rigour of a think-tank with the creativity of a global media brand to inform discourse and drive change. Our partnerships enable solutions across many areas including sustainability, health and new globalisation. We work with NGOs, businesses, governments and international institutions to design partnerships that drive value across the organisation and impact in the world.

Economist Intelligence uses data, analysis and forecasting to guide informed decisions by businesses and policymakers. Country, industry and risk analyses enable clients to navigate political and economic developments while data-driven analysis of medical-technology markets identifies growth opportunities.

Economist Education equips current and future leaders with a fluent understanding of the shifts impacting their world and the skills to navigate them. Offering online courses led by expert practitioners and written by The Economist’s team of correspondents and editors, we enable individual learning and development in a globalised world.

At The Economist Group we combine cutting edge technology with our dedication to provide leading source analysis on international business and world affairs. We are heavily invested in technology and committed to developing a culture where employees can be their authentic self. Equally, we’re focused on bringing the best out of you to achieve a thriving career from the moment you join The Economist Group.

We operate 100% in the Cloud, with a varied tech stack including TypeScript, NodeJS, Graphql, React& React Native, .Net, ElasticSearch, Serverless, No-SQL& SQL DB, Salesforce, Zuora, Snowflake, CircleCI, NewRelic, Firebase and AWS. We value automated testing, a culture of DevOps and observability, and infrastructure-as-code. We encourage our engineers to learn and share their skills together, and teams frequently pair or mob on tasks.

We deliver world-class, thought provoking content through a range of formats, from web and app, to newspapers and magazines, conferences, film and audio. What ties us together is the objectivity of our opinion, the originality of our insight and our advocacy of economic and political freedom around the world.
