The Opportunity

CEO is currently seeking a highly organized and detail-focused Data and Contracts Analyst (DCA) who will create process flow organization for all contracts; coordinate and complete reporting for all of CEO’s contracts; and partner on audit processes and submissions for all contracts for our Northern California program. The DCA will ensure all aspects of enrollment, eligibility, performance tracking, and reporting on a contract are planned out in coordination with the site leadership. The DCA will play a vitally important role in helping to kick off contracts and meet contract deliverables and better fulfill our mission of providing comprehensive employment services to individuals who have recently returned home from incarceration. The DCA is integral to CEO in that they organize contract requirements, eligibility documents, audit submissions and serve as the in-house expert on reporting into local and statewide data systems.  

This role will work closely with the California leadership team composed of the Deputy Executive Director, Program Director, Regional Directors, and Site Directors as well as the Business Development team. The offices in the region (Oakland, Marin, Sacramento, San Jose, Solano) have a range of contracts and grants, including but not limited to city, county, and state government contracts as well as philanthropic grants. This role requires a high level of organization, planning, and attention to detail to manage the analysis, reporting, invoicing, compliance, audit, and data entry related to the contracts. The DCA will also coordinate closely with the CA leadership team and Business Development to support with relationship management, performance tracking, meetings, and calls related to the contracts. 

As part of our mission, we strongly encourage individuals who have lived experience of incarceration or involvement in the justice system to apply for this role.
