Position: Data Analyst - Washington, DC or remote

Reports to: Senior Director of Data Services

Organization Description: The Voter Participation Center (VPC) is the nation’s largest non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to registering and mobilizing voters from the New American Majority (NAM) – people of color, unmarried women and young people – who make up the majority of the potential electorate but have been historically underrepresented in political participation and power. Using direct mail, digital and social media outreach, guided by rigorous data science and experimentation, and working closely with a multitude of partner organizations, VPC connects with millions of voters each year, building the foundation for a more representative democracy.

Over 18 years VPC has helped more than 5.7 million people register to vote. In 2020, as COVID-19 shut down most forms of in-person voter contact, VPC helped more than 4.6 million people apply to vote by mail & cast ballots, registered more than 1.6 million people, and assisted millions of voters in voting early and safely to reduce pressures on polling places on Election Day.

VPC programs are flexible, nimble and scalable. VPC is driven by a commitment to constant research, testing, experimentation and evaluation, and thus offers many of the most cost effective, proven, high-impact programs in the civic engagement field.

The Center for Voter Information (CVI) is VPC’s partner organization, and is a separate but affiliated 501(c)4 non-profit that works to engage both the NAM as well as members of the broader electorate who share their values.

Position Overview:  VPC and CVI seek a Data Analyst to provide additional insights and visibility into all aspects of our voter registration and vote-by-mail programs. Your domain expertise and analytic skills will be vital to the success of VPC and CVI’s voter outreach programs; you will be responsible for answering questions about our datasets quickly and accurately, with the ability to communicate where the analysis is incomplete. You recognize that the real world is messy, and know how to clean and organize data to make work easier for your colleagues and the community. You might have some ideas for data sources we have never looked at before or experiments we have not yet conducted -- or never examined at scale. At VPC and CVI, you will have the opportunity to work on projects that reach millions of voters, at a time where mail is more important than ever. We cannot do it without you. This role could be based out of our Washington DC office or remote for the duration of the pandemic.
