  • You are energized when your work is due on a tight turn-around because it is needed to inform timely decisions that will help make classrooms better for students and teachers

The impact you'll have:

  • You’ll use SQL to create datasets to be used for internal and external applied educational research and psychometric projects.

  • Maintain and update code to query data and conduct analyses in a centralized location, such as a code repository or network drive.
  • Conduct a range of basic data analysis and reporting projects, as well as assist with high level data analysis for applied education research and psychometric projects.
  • Contribute to quality control processes to ensure accuracy of data sets and analyses for applied educational research and psychometric projects.

Who we’re looking for:

  • Bachelor’s degree (Master's preferred) in Mathematics, Information Systems, Data Analytics, Education, Social Sciences or related areas.
  • 1-3 years of experience in a similar role.
  • Comfort when independently writing complex and efficient SQL queries and joining multiple tables within large relational databases.
  • Experience working with SAS, R, or similar coding language for manipulating data and conducting statistical analyses.
  • Curiosity and initiative to learn new technologies and skills, and to procure information using available resources.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, ideally with experience communicating complex technical topics to lay audiences.
  • Proven ability to manage multiple complex projects while maintaining a high level of attention to detail.
  • Ability to work in a self-directed way.
  • Ability to use critical thinking skills to identify issues with data accuracy and data integrity.
