Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. As a national online force driven by over one million members, we help people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us, moving decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America. We activate our members to take action on crucial issues — from criminal justice to media representations to the social safety net and voter freedom — so that we can build the power necessary to transform the written and unwritten rules of society.
Role Summary & Background
As Color Of Change expands its staff significantly in 2020, we are undertaking a major expansion of our data, analytics, and engineering capabilities to turbocharge our campaigns for change. Our electoral campaigns, grassroots lobbying, and culture change work is generating a flood of data, some of which we are currently using to inform our work. But we’re just scratching the surface -- so much more is possible. That’s why we are making major investments in our data operation to ensure more and more of our data can be analyzed, and then leveraged, to guide our strategic and tactical decisions.
Strong candidates will excel in data analysis that leads to concrete recommendations for our program. By supporting experiments, conducting exploratory analyses, and presenting findings and recommendations in digestible formats, this role powers the organization's innovation in campaigning.
The ideal candidate will have:
Prior experience with CRM tools, particularly those used in the progressive movement, is helpful, but not required (ActionKit, ActionNetwork, NationBuilder,etc.). Similarly, experience with business intelligence tools (Tableau, Periscope) or scripting languages (Python, Ruby, etc.) are both helpful, but not required. We are strong believers that if you have the fundamental technical skills required above but lack domain experience, a hungry desire to learn is a compelling substitute.
