Are you interested in being part of the energy transition? Do you love making connections and solving puzzles or problems? Are you detailed and focused yet you also have broad interests and ideas and excellent communication skills? Do you enjoy analytical research work but also thrive on client interaction?

If so, please apply to be a Project Analyst in IPA’s Latin America office! The Project Analyst will lead evaluations and consulting for major energy players, to help them improve the effectiveness of their capital projects as they transition to a zero-carbon environment.


Independent Project Analysis (IPA) has an opening in our Latin America office (located in Curitiba/PR, Brazil) for a Project Analyst. The candidate should have a proven track record working on capital projects or analyzing project feasibility in the upstream oil & gas market. Candidates are required to have strong analytical skills, intellectual curiosity, and a desire to contribute as a thought leader. Aptitude for and demonstrated skills to be a successful analyst include your ability to connect real life with the data and vice versa, to know when to ask more questions and when to just listen, and how to back yourself as you learn and thrive.

IPA’s client portfolio includes world-leading companies in both heavy and light industries around the world. IPA has offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Australia, Brazil, and Singapore; as such, major industry leaders globally rely on us to assess the health of their capital project systems and provide recommendations to improve their performance. IPA evaluates hundreds of capital projects every year, developing very complete technical, business, and people histories from their front-end through early operation. These histories become the data we use to find what works and what does not work in capital projects. The IPA project databases are unique and the most comprehensive sources of capital project experience in existence. IPA also takes a leading role in empirical research into the drivers of better projects and project systems, using our extensive databases of past project performance.


General responsibilities of the role include:

  • Working directly with capital project teams and project organizations of major E&P companies to improve business competitiveness
  • Interfacing with clients to collect and analyze technical, cost, schedule, and project management data
  • Writing reports with insight and a customer focus
  • Delivering verbal feedback and public presentations
  • Conducting research on drivers of project success or failure using proprietary databases and statistics

Project Analysts must have excellent written and oral communication skills, display the interpersonal skills needed to develop and maintain relationships at senior levels with client companies, and have a demonstrated aptitude for learning new concepts and applying them quickly. This position requires fluency in Portuguese and English; fluency in Spanish is an advantage.
