Before entering the IMF, Gopinath had a two-decade career as an academic, notably as the John Zwaanstra Professor of International Studies and Economics at Harvard University from 2005 and as an Assistant Professor at the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. She is also a co-director of the National Bureau of Economic Research's, International Finance and Macroeconomics department and formerly served as the Chief Minister of Kerala's Honorary Economic Adviser.

Christine Lagarde, the IMF's Managing Director, named Gopinath as the organization's Chief Economist in October 2018. In a discussion with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show, she called the worldwide recession of 2020 'The Great Lockdown.' Kristalina Georgieva, the IMF's Managing Director, appointed her as the organization's First Managing Director in December 2021.
