This role would be primarily focused on providing support to schools in the use of the systems and platforms provided by the CMO, troubleshooting issues and identifying solutions to ensure that all DP schools can use data tools effectively. We currently administer and maintain a number of systems, both internally produced and purchased from vendors, most of which are in use daily by school-based staff around the country- so your work will be crucial to the way that principals and teachers use data in the school setting.

What You’ll Do

  • Become an expert in a number of student information systems and data tools
  • Manage and maintain school-based data systems on behalf of multiple Democracy Prep schools, ensuring that data collection is timely and of high quality
  • Provide generalized assistance and data support to members of each school’s operations team both in person and over video and phone calls
  • Help to identify issues and obstacles that affect each school, and work with the rest of the data team to find and implement solutions
  • Act as a crucial part of the network data team, working with school-based staff to ensure network policy is faithfully applied, and to ensure that schools have the resources necessary to use data within the school setting
  • Refine technical documentation to empower staff members with institutional knowledge and best practices in how to enter and use data
  • Find ways to develop and grow your own skillset in a variety of different domains, including data analysis, programming, interface design, data science, and more, with possibilities for expanded responsibilities in the future

  • A customer support mentality to ensure that school-based staff are well-trained in data platforms, and get timely answers to their questions
  • The ability to clearly communicate technical concepts to non-technical users
  • Preference given to those with experience manipulating data in spreadsheets, databases, or some front-end code
  • Must be highly organized and detail-oriented
  • Must be able to juggle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Must be able to meet deadlines, be results-oriented, and thrive in a fast-paced environment

Compensation

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
