Description

Alloy is a nonprofit building data and technology for the Progressive Movement. 

At Alloy we’re doing our part to help slow the spread of the current Coronavirus pandemic, following guidelines from public health officials to ensure the safety of our employees and the health of everyone we work with. We have instituted a policy that allows our staff to work remotely during this time, even as we continue our important work building better data and technology for progressive organizations. Although our team is working remote at this time, we are looking to continue hiring in DC. 

As part of our commitment to protecting the right to vote and helping mobilize voters, we are continuing to recruit and hire talented professionals dedicated to the ideals at the heart of the progressive movement. 

All over the progressive community, people have mobilized to build power and protect democracy. We equip them with data and technology tools to help them win. 

Our diverse team of designers, data scientists, engineers, and product managers spend their days understanding the needs of people on the front lines of our movement, assembling data, and building infrastructure that progressive causes and campaigns can depend on, long into the future. Join us!

Partnership Success Analysts at Alloy are responsible for understanding and responding to the needs of the organizations we serve, providing analysis, recommendations, and support through onboarding for Alloy products, and providing ongoing support. 

Responsibilities range from data analysis, to technical support and troubleshooting.  Depending on the project, execution responsibilities may include: analyzing the needs of a partner and adapting them to written SQL queries, evaluating how products and data available can best serve partner needs, and evaluating trends and changes in a variety of datasets. 

In addition, the Partnership Success Analyst must engage all relevant team members, manage stakeholders, and communicate broadly to ensure all relevant parts of the company are aligned and have shared expectations. Given the space within which Alloy operates, Alloy Partnerships Success Analysts are expected to be able to work on projects requiring significant knowledge of electoral politics, data science, data engineering, and/or database-heavy products. As with all Alloy staff, they are expected to be strong team members who lead with empathy, communicate profusely, foster a supportive team spirit, and have a bias toward action.

Data Analysis:
Perform data processing and analysis tasks as requested to support teams across Alloy. This may include:
  • Writing SQL queries and working with a variety of outputs to combine and analyze raw data
  • Analyzing data sets to provide answers to questions like cell phone number coverage, or numbers of unregistered potential voters in specific geographies
  • Integrating multiple data sources and creating application-specific views using tools built by Data Science and Engineering

Quality Assurance + Control:

Ensure that Alloy has the highest quality data possible, both in incoming data and in our customer-facing products
  • Adhere to quality metrics to measure both coverage and accuracy of diverse data sets
  • Evaluate QA and QC processes on incoming data, customer-facing databases, and internal data processing systems to measure and monitor quality metrics
  • Coordinate with and support the Data Science and Engineering teams to build the models and tools necessary to measure and monitor quality metrics and perform above processes
  • Perform these tasks on an ongoing basis to proactively measure and monitor data quality
  • Identify process, tool, and data improvements to increase the quality of Alloy’s data
  • Define metrics to measure the overall progress of Alloy’s data acquisition efforts and report on them
  • Respond to specific data quality problems/questions

Data Acquisition:

Provide recommendations on the acquisition of data required by the company for its products as observed and gathered from work with Partners.

Process Management:

In all of the above work, Partner Success Analysts are expected to work together to build and support replicable, predictable frameworks and documentation to ensure the team can operate quickly and efficiently, and to adapt as necessary to meet Partner needs.

Nonprofit

This means that we don’t have shareholders to return profits to -- but we do aim to offer salaries competitive with for-profit companies. You may want to know, however, that we are a DC nonprofit, and not a 501(c)3 or 501(c)4 federal nonprofit, and are not eligible for the programs those federal nonprofit organizations enjoy.
