SUMC is looking for a Research and Evaluation Analyst to join the Los Angeles Office. SUMC is expanding its Los Angeles Office to serve a growing set of programs that include program evaluation and learning components. These capacity-building programs disseminate knowledge and resources throughout a rapidly-growing mobility ecosystem of public agencies, community-based organizations, Native American tribes, and private sector mobility providers.
Foremost among these programs is California Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program (CMO). CMO is a partnership with the California Air Resources Board to support zero-emission shared mobility pilots in the State’s disadvantaged communities. SUMC works in partnership with CALSTART as the CMO Program Administrator, delivering funding and capacity-building resources to underserved and low-income communities across California in pursuit of mobility equity goals.
The Research and Evaluation Analyst will work closely with the Strategic Lead for California and Western Programs and SUMC’s California and Chicago-based teams to support the organization’s growing capacity-building programs. The position presents a rare opportunity to work across the public and private sectors to shape equity indicators, metrics, and data collection processes to impact the future of mobility around climate and social equity goals.

Depending on the needs at the time, the Research and Evaluation Analyst will primarily be responsible for coordinating research efforts for program evaluation, facilitating data collection management tasks, analyzing data, and delivering technical assistance around data collection specific to transportation equity projects.
As the Research and Evaluation Analyst you will gain a deep understanding of topical areas of research and methods of analysis and have the opportunity to become a subject matter expert on a number of wide-ranging topics that could include transportation planning, community engagement, procurement, public-private partnerships, accessibility, data management, and innovative transportation technology.
