About Color of Change:

Color Of Change is one of the largest Black-led racial justice organizations in the country with millions of email and SMS subscribers. We specialize in providing our members with easy, strategic actions to take in response to racial injustices—that, when added with the voices of others—create the leverage for winning real-world change for Black people.

From challenging injustice to pushing back against Silicon Valley enablers of white supremacists, Color Of Change has a track record of holding decision-makers — corporate and political —  accountable to Black people.

Role Summary:

We utilize our data and analytics capabilities to turbocharge our campaigns for change. Our electoral campaigns, grassroots lobbying, and representation work generate a flood of data, some of which we are currently using to inform our work. So much more is possible. That’s why we are making additional investments in our data and analytics operation to ensure more and more of our data can be organized, analyzed, and leveraged to guide our strategic decisions.

In this role, you’ll work on improving program performance, which includes increasing member growth and engagement, optimizing tactics, and increasing fundraising. You’ll be working in a leadership role, focusing on coaching others to use data-informed strategies across the organization.

Improve list hygiene and deliverability, including developing data-informed approaches for retention, data quality, and matches to external platforms such as Facebook/Google ads manager, SMS tools, etc.

The ideal candidate will have:

A track record of fostering a data-driven culture by building relationships with stakeholders and showing the value of data for making decisions

Experience analyzing multiple data sources in a SQL database, including well-documented, testable code demonstrating best practices for data integrity

A background managing a team to achieve target outcomes through coaching, prioritization, and delegation

A love for communicating analytics in a simple way to empower non-technical users

A strong racial justice analysis with the ability to effectively integrate this analysis in your data work, including identifying moments where racial justice may affect the collection, analysis, and presentation of our data

Hands-on experience developing reports and/or dashboards that tell a clear story in Looker, Tableau, or similar business intelligence tools

Familiarity with common electoral and advocacy tech tools like ActionKit, NGP/VAN, calling & texting tools helpful, but not required

Exposure to Python, R, Google Analytics, DBT, and/or cloud engineering tools helpful, but not required
