With well over seven million members, MoveOn.org is uniquely situated to organize for real progressive change. Since its beginning, MoveOn has been a pioneer in using the internet to empower members to create political change. Good analytics has always been a big part of that. From large-scale online petitions to pioneering small dollar donations and distributed events to the things that will change tomorrow's politics — our team is all about connecting with and serving of our members, including through smart, data-driven innovation.
Our team works to build analytical capacity across MoveOn's different initiatives, advise on data and statistics help ensure MoveOn projects are driven by a good use of data. Our team also undertakes industry-leading research to find new ways of listening to our members, ensuring that they're getting what they want from MoveOn, and optimizing action for volume and impact.
The Senior Data Analyst and Researcher role is a key position on a small, collaborative team. You'll be working on a range of projects that may include optimizing conversion rates on petition pages, figuring out how to measure the spread of content, or modeling what makes individual members more active online over time.
That means that above all you should have a strong ability to translate real world problems into analytic questions and an abiding curiosity about how experimentation and data can be used to solve organizing problems. You need to have a close attention to detail while being comfortable in an environment in which implementable solutions and hard deadlines are de rigueur. You should enjoy working in a team and communicating with others.
