DEPUTY DATA DIRECTOR OF REPORTING

DEPUTY DATA DIRECTOR OF REPORTING, FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY

The Florida Democratic Party (FDP) is expanding our data and analytics team in advance of 2020 and are currently seeking a Deputy Data Director of Reporting. The candidate is tasked with development of working and collaborating with the senior executive team, the data team, County and Party officials, and the field team to develop easy-to-read reports that allow the Party to communicate department metrics, field targeting and voter contact as well as progress to goal with Party officials, candidates, elected leaders and donors.


At the Florida Democratic Party we view the data department’s core competency as solving problems that involve data and information. As part of this core competency, we administer the Voter Activation Network (VAN, our CRM) in partnership with county parties and campaigns. We create reports to support the work that staff and volunteers are doing throughout the state of Florida. Our team is responsible for targeting, using maps and statistical analysis to ensure we are speaking to the voters who most need to hear from us, that we are tracking progress-to-goals across all departments and ultimately that we are using data and analytics to ensure Democrats win.


While a broad skill set is always a plus, what we are really looking for is someone who can specialize and take ownership over a few aspects of our departmental work. So whether you are an experienced campaign staffer who is new to data, or a technical guru who is new to campaigns, or something in between, we want to hear from you. If you are interested in politics and want to join a team that is all about problem solving, we hope you will apply.


DESCRIPTION OF DUTIES

    • Develop informative, accurate, and easy to understand reports that allow us to track our organization’s progress across departments.
    • Regularly provide contextual analysis of those reports to senior leadership.
    • Train and mentor volunteer data captains across the state.
    • Craft reports in conjunction with multiple stakeholders outside of FDP staff including Party officials, candidates, elected leaders and donors.
    • Use of SQL (BigQuery and Postgres) to manipulate data needed for reporting.
    • Regular communications with Party stakeholders to identify what data and reports are needed to make decisions regarding elections, infrastructure building, growing the Party and improving our core competencies.
    • Creative thinking and ability to proactively understand purpose of reports and offer suggestions to improve a report.
    • Catalogue all current reports and address improvements, evaluate redundancies and identify reports that would be useful moving forward.
    • Develop a reporting catalogue for the FDP that includes detailed documentation of what each report measures specifically, including any notable caveats.
    • Experience with organizing tools including Hustle, Spoke, Organizer, Mobilize America and Relay dialer (to name a few) and willingness to learn and incorporate new digital and tech organizing tools into FDP’s data infrastructure.
    • Clean and import large datasets for loading into VAN or a SQL database.

    • Good Listener: many of our colleagues don't come from a technical background. They won't always know what's possible or even what to ask us for. Part of your job is to listen closely, use common sense, and discern their true needs so that we can solve real problems.
    • Positive Attitude: Even on tough days, our team needs to remain optimistic and upbeat. This will make us more productive, and, to an extent, positive attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
    • Share Democratic Values: Our mission is to elect all of our Florida Democratic candidates. You need to share a passion for this mission. If you are inclined to support Republicans, to split your ticket, or are disengaged from politics, then this isn't the job for you.
    • Regular interaction with County Parties, elected officials and volunteer data teams across the state.
    • Prior experience as staff on a campaign (field experience preferred).
    • At least two campaign cycles in data or analytics or 2 years experience in creating data driven reports for a large organization.

    • Knowledge of SQL  (BigQuery and Postgres).
    • Ability to create GIS maps with data layers.
    • Past use of scripting or macros to automate tasks or manage large datasets in Excel and/or Python.
    • Experience writing and designing software, particularly if it integrates with APIs.
    • Familiarity with challenges that relate to campaign field programs involving turf, literature, capacity, etc.
    • Ability to create reports using Tableau and/or Google Data Studio.
    • Creativity!
