About District Public:

District Public is a small and growing business looking for a Senior Analyst to join our team! We were founded in 2014 with a mission to help K-12 public schools in New York City analyze and make more effective use of their data. We think of ourselves as data coaches for school leaders and educators, helping them to organize, interpret, and take action on their data. Our passion is for helping school leaders use data to strengthen teaching and learning and increase education equity. Currently, we work with about 60 NYC district K-12 schools across all boroughs of the city.

We work collaboratively with school teams to understand their challenges, build tools and analyses, and facilitate professional development that is tailored to their needs.  We help schools improve instruction, make better decisions, save time, and instill a culture of continuous learning and improvement anchored in data. We aim to know our schools and their teams so we can help them tackle their most pressing problems. We’re looking for someone special to join our team to help us provide better support to more schools. 

Responsibilities and areas of need:

We’re searching for an agile, creative problem-solver with significant analytical experience and strong communication skills to help put those skills to use supporting public K-12 schools in New York City.  We have built up a range of standardized and customized offerings with tools to provide those quickly and efficiently. Our primary need with this role is to streamline and improve those tools so that other members of our team (who are also skilled in working with spreadsheets) can more efficiently and accurately run standardized analyses and customize those analyses where needed.

You must be comfortable juggling multiple projects simultaneously, and be flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances. We frequently work under tight deadlines, so you must be organized, efficient, and able to carefully prioritize your work.

The job has two main parts, with the primary responsibilities of: 

1. Updating, streamlining, and applying existing analytical models in spreadsheets. Building new models where needed.

  • Work with, modify, and occasionally build new analytical models used to analyze data from schools, working primarily in Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets
  • Clean data, run reports, error check results, troubleshoot problems, and support team members in customizing analyses for their schools’ particular needs
  • Document updates and processes to enable other members of the team to run analyses efficiently and accurately.

2. Collaboration:

  • Work directly and closely with senior data coaches by taking their requirements taken from school leaders and building analyses to meet their needs
  • Directly train, coach, and support other team members on using analytical models 
  • Offer suggestions and ideas to improve both the process for creating existing offerings, improving the quality of existing offerings, and suggesting new offerings.
  • Occasionally meet with school leaders alongside senior data coaches to understand needs and provide coaching and support

In most cases, you will work from the direction of a District Public partner or senior data coach. In some cases, you will be working directly with school teams and must be comfortable working directly with school leaders and staff. 

You will also help District Public itself continuously improve, providing input on others’ projects, helping streamline and standardize our internal operations and approaches, and lending your content knowledge and expertise to improve how we work and what we deliver to clients. We are a growing business and this role includes opportunities for growth and advancement.

Skills that will enable you to thrive:

  • You are quick to pick up new tech and tools and have advanced skills in Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, and VBA with an interest in deepening skills.
  • You have an internal drive and strong organization and prioritization skills so you can exceed expectations with very limited supervision.
  • You excel at being thorough and efficient in a 100% remote work environment with multiple projects at various stages.
  • You are attentive and detail-oriented and have your own personal organizational habits and systems.
  • You love collaborating with others, while working together to find creative solutions. 
  • You have an interest in and passion for K-12 public education.

Extra bonus if you have one or more of these skills or experiences:

  • You have worked in or around K-12 public education.
  • You have directly supported schools and school teams with data analysis and management.
  • You have data visualization and/or graphic design skills.
  • You have skills in Airtable, MS Access, MySQL, Python, Tableau, Google App scripting, R, or other database, data visualization, or analysis programs.
  • You have a knowledge of improvement science or action research.
  • You have worked in or around New York City public schools.

The Role Logistics:

District Public is a small company (currently seven team members) and all employees work remotely.  As such, you will be comfortable working both individually and in collaboration with team members, as well as communicating remotely via phone, email, videoconference, and other communication channels.  You will primarily work remotely, but must reside in the New York City area and be able to travel to New York City occasionally for in-person company meetings and to visit schools. School visits may be in any borough.

This is a full-time, overtime-exempt position with competitive salary and benefits. The salary range is $95,000-$105,000 per annum.

You will report to Luke Davenport and Som Pati, Partners, District Public, and will work collaboratively with other members of the District Public team.   

Due to New York City conflict of interest rules, former NYC Department of Education (NYC DOE) employees may not interact with current NYC DOE employees for one year from their last date of employment. Because this position requires frequent interaction with current NYC DOE employees, you must not have been employed by the NYC DOE within the past twelve months.
