Why is banking so complicated?
Can a bank exist to help people, not confuse them?
What if banks didn’t charge so many ridiculous fees?
What if your bank taught you to feel confident with money?

The answer to each question was Simple.


We've recently hired junior data analysts, so students with an analytics background would be great. Our current searches have been for creative folks too, so students with marketing / design backgrounds would be fantastic too!

But to turn opportunities into reality, people need the power of data at their fingertips. Tableau is building software to deliver exactly that. Our products are transforming the way people use data to solve problems. We make analyzing data fast and easy, beautiful and useful. It's software for anyone and everyone.


Our great friend, Andrew Barker, purveyor of Winter Shadows and boundless enthusiasm for hiring Reedies, is making a solo trip, so your time with him will be at the table in Kaul.

The Cadmus Group

Rachel Waterman & Joan Wang
Energy Sector Recruiter/Senior Analyst


The Cadmus Group, Inc. opened for business in Watertown, Massachusetts, on May 1, 1983. The company’s name came from the Greek myth of a Phoenician prince who brought the alphabet to Greece, founded one of the great city-states, and became renowned for his wisdom and advice. “There was a lot more to the myth,” Gene once wrote, “but that was enough for us: a wise man who founded his own city and gave advice. ‘Cadmus’ it was to be.”

Cadmus engages in a broad array of services for clients including consulting, risk evaluation, sustainability consulting, strategic communications, and much more. 


Overall, we have a preference towards meeting students who meet any of these criteria:

  • Experience conducting online or internet surveys, market research, or experience conducting focus groups
  • Economic or statistical research/academic work, particularly using large datasets for analysis
  • Any energy efficiency, utility, or renewable energy exposure, through classes, independent research, internships etc. (or a strong interest in this field)
  • Students interested in or pursuing the dual programs in Engineering or the program with Duke (in addition hiring many Reed Alumni, Cadmus frequently hires out of the Nicholas school as well)
  • Students with Junior or Senior standing

Also, while most students may interested in opportunities in Portland, Cadmus also frequently hires in Massachusetts, Colorado, DC, Wisconsin, and California.
