Introduction
MobilizeAmerica is the events management and volunteer recruitment platform that connects mission-driven organizations and their supporters.

In just 2 years, our platform has helped nearly 2,000 advocacy organizations and political campaigns (including Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, and 20 Presidential campaigns) sign up one million supporters for volunteer action and events.

Our team comes from Airbnb, Bain & Company, Condé Nast, Facebook, Hustle, McKinsey, Medium, Mixpanel, The New York Times, Quora, and various political campaigns and governmental organizations.

We’ve just closed a $3.75m Series A round; our investors include Higher Ground Labs, Lowercase Capital (Chris Sacca), 32 Ventures, Meetup co-founder Scott Heiferman, and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman.

We are committed to building a workplace that reflects the diversity of volunteers and organizations that we exist to serve. We especially encourage women, people who identify as LGBTQ, people of color, and others who are underrepresented in the technology and nonprofit industry to apply.

About the role:

We are hiring our first Data Scientist to power insights across the entire company. We aspire to have data underlie all of our business and product decisions, and this position will be key to helping us achieve that by working across teams to transform data into actionable strategies and influence both product direction and corporate strategy.

You will:

  • Develop and maintain data products and analytics infrastructure

  • Create essential performance metrics for our product and internal functions

  • Develop methodologies in sampling, A/B testing, and survey design

  • Apply statistical inference to draw conclusions from data

  • Use a combination of exploratory analysis and data mining techniques to identify and interpret trends and anomalies

  • Work with internal customers to develop optimized models and views for their needs

  • Communicate results and make applicable recommendations to team members in Product, Partnerships, and Success

  • Work with engineering to design and drive implementation of improvements in our product analytics infrastructure

  • Work with product management and design to drive product decisions through high-quality data

Who you are:

  • You care deeply about empowering ordinary people for progressive causes. We’re a mission-driven company, and everything we do is guided by political impact. At the end of the day, we’re here to help progressive candidates and causes win elections

  • You have 3+ years of experience as a data scientist or quantitative researcher

  • You have experience working with BI data tools (our current toolset includes Segment, Amplitude, and Periscope)

  • You are proficient in SQL, and ideally are comfortable getting your hands dirty in code to find answers and build scrappy experiments

  • You have a strong theoretical and practical knowledge of statistics

  • Experience with product analytics and A/B testing

  • You have exceptional communication skills and are able to deftly communicate insights to stakeholders from various backgrounds

  • You can balance thoughtfulness with practicality (i.e., you follow the 80 / 20 rule)

  • You’re not afraid of uncertainty and aim to fail fast. We bring an ethos of experimentation to everything

Benefits

  • Competitive compensation and equity package

  • Full medical coverage including dental benefits

  • Unlimited vacation policy

  • 401K benefits

This position is based in New York City, so candidates should be here or willing to relocate.

We care deeply about our users and the impact they have on our country. We also love working together, and highly value transparency and collaboration. Join us!
