Job Description

You’ll be responsible for collecting, maintaining, reporting, and analyzing data for our Performance Management Framework (PMF) and the accompanying annual School Quality Reports. You’ll focus on adult public charter schools, working with school leaders and school-based data managers on the PMF.

You’re an essential member of the Financial and Academic Quality (FAQ) team as you prepare for meetings with DC PCSB senior staff and school leaders and developing PMF policy updates. Your analysis of adult public charter schools’ academic performance for charter reviews or renewals supports the entire organization.

You’re more than a data analyst; you’re the one we trust to educate and support school leaders regarding DC PCSB’s practices and policies. You’re great with verbal and written communication, and you’ll work with other Data Analysts to develop easy-to-read dashboards and visualizations to communicate school performance data to the public and school leaders.

Along with the rest of the data team, you’ll continue to help move us from manual analysis towards automation to more efficiently meet the needs of our fast-paced environment. Your SQL skills will help us automate the process of moving data that feeds into our QuickBase and Looker applications, and you’ll share your data visualization skills with a variety of audiences. 

As our go-to person for all adult education data questions, you’ll learn our internal systems and be able to make changes to the processes, provide the team and leadership with strong data analysis. You’ll proactively make recommendations to improve our policies, products, and processes.

COMPETENCIES AND QUALIFICATIONS

You are detail oriented, independent, and able to develop innovative solutions to difficult problems. You’re comfortable with large quantities of data and, technically speaking, you have strong SQL and Excel experience as well as an additional scripting language such as Python or R.  

 

With a strong customer service focus, you see change requests as an opportunity to improve both our products and the quality of education provided to DC students. You have strong writing skills, strong visualization skills, and a strong work ethic.

COMPENSATION

Salary is competitive and commensurate with prior experience in a similar role. DC PCSB offers a comprehensive benefits plan.  The salary band for this position is $70,000 - $80,000.

DC PCSB is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse staff. We strive to foster an environment where everyone feels included. We believe that when people bring their unique identities, backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to our community, we are able to truly achieve excellence in our work.
