Data and Analytics Manager Job Description


Now more than ever, the states have a critical role to play in driving our country forward. The Impact Project (TIP) does this by: 1) winning progressive economic and democracy policies, and 2) shaping the issue environment so that the states become more progressive over time. 


The Data and Analytics Manager plays a central role in determining how and where TIP invests our education and outreach dollars. They analyze demographic and economic data, assess the opportunities and challenges presented by new district lines, and recommend criteria for selecting -- and metrics for assessing -- our issue persuasion campaigns. They also help design and implement experiments that show the impact of the nonpartisan Get Out The Vote campaigns we fund. This position reports to the Analytics Director and is full time and considered exempt for federal overtime purposes. 


Our Culture


Our culture is fast-paced and we push for results. We love data, experimentation, and learning from both successes and failures (instead of fearing them). And along the way, we strive to be less Eeyore and more Tigger in our approach. We seek team members who are creative, communicative self-starters who enjoy collaboration. The core values we live by include:


  • Agile – We move quickly and easily. We adapt.
  • Bold – We take risks. We are fearless in the face of big challenges.
  • Curious – We have a thirst for data and question assumptions.
  • Creative Disruptors – We stretch beyond the norm. We bring new ideas, new partners, and new strategies. 
  • Dig Deep – We aren’t looking for surface wins, but fundamental shifts in power.


What You’ll Do 


Conduct research and analysis to inform targeting decisions

  • Analyze data (demographic, electoral, economic) about communities, districts, and states to evaluate their potential for engagement investment
  • Organize data and create dashboards that make the data easily-accessible to program teams and state directors 
  • Follow polling and political trends to identify gaps in research and programming 


Support implementation of voter engagement programs

  • Work with state teams to implement nonpartisan voter contact programs, giving trainings on tools and providing technical support
  • Ensure that our team members (staff and grantees) are taking advantage of our membership with The Movement Cooperative
  • Navigate data sets in VAN, MyTargetSmart, Civis platform, Periscope, excel, and a statistics package of your choice
  • Advise on whether proposed projects in the states are utilizing the smartest mix of tactics and content 


Analyze program impact

  • With the Analytics Director, design experiments that test the impact of GOTV programs. Set up control and treatment groups for grantees to best evaluate the impact of their projects
  • Where grantees don’t have the in-house expertise to run their own experiments (but want to build it), coach them and provide technical expertise
  • Work with the Engagement and Impact teams to track progress against our topline metrics for advocacy, organizing, and communications. Coach our staff on developing metrics for grants and contracts that feed into those
  • Help analyze data sets from grantee phone, digital, mail, etc. programs. We want to assess audience reach across multiple partner groups, whether different audience segments are performing as forecast, and which audiences are responding to which tactics and issues
  • Package lessons learned and how they can be applied to ongoing programs


Who You Are


You will bring familiarity with campaign tactics, data, and targeting, and an understanding of pros and cons of different approaches. In addition, to be successful at this job you will excel in these areas:

  • Aptitude for finding the lessons hidden in the data and showing others how to apply it to campaigns 
  • A team player who believes the best answer is the one that includes multiple perspectives
  • Detail-oriented, but not so precise we miss the imagination and innovation 
  • A commitment to progressive successes in the states
  • Strong written and verbal communicator who is able to efficiently and compellingly package information and data
  • Familiarity with the inner workings of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations.
