Who We Are:

data.org is building a better future with data, and is looking for creative, results-driven professionals passionate about the potential of data and technology to achieve social impact to join our team.

Launched in January 2020 and building on an initial five-year, $50M commitment from The Rockefeller Foundation and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, data.org envisions a world that uses the power of data science to help solve society’s greatest challenges and improve lives across the globe. As a platform for partnerships, data.org works alongside social impact organizations, philanthropy, technology firms, and academia to build the field of data science for social impact.

About this Role:

As data.org, we put a high premium on clear, analytically rigorous data insights for the social sector. Within data.org, this role will play an important part in providing that clarity, rigor, and creativity to both the Marketing / Product team as well as to the Initiative teams. As a senior individual contributor, this role will help build the new analyst function within data.org, initially deploying contract resources, then hiring junior analyst staff when there is sufficient demand and the necessary funding to do so. This role will report to the Chief Marketing Officer.

Marketing & Product

This role will lead on analytics and reporting for the newly- launched Resource Library and associated Data Maturity Assessment Tool. These products serve the broader data science for social impact community, and this person will be charged with ensuring that the digital products are providing the best experience — and that the insights derived about the social sector can inform data.org investment and provide the evidence base for data.org’s biannual State of the Data Science for Social Impact Sector report. In addition, this role will review marketing analytics data for the marketing site, email products, and social data. This person will work closely with team members, particularly the Digital Content Lead, to interpret this data, derive relevant and actionable insights, and make clear recommendations for next steps.

Initiatives

Today, data.org has three initiatives in flight: Epiverse, the Capacity Accelerator Network (CAN), and the Inclusive Growth and Recovery Challenge. Each of these initiatives has programs that make use of and produce data, from mapping global programs to creating and distributing open curricula. The Senior Data Analyst will analyze, interpret, and convey insights to inform the work of each Initiative team.
