IDinsight is hiring a full-time associate or senior associate (0 to 5 years of relevant experience) to grow our Data Science, Engineering, and Monitoring Systems (DSEM) team. In this role, the DSEM Associate will work closely with senior leaders of the DSEM team to help grow critical business functions and help deliver on projects alongside data scientists and data engineering professionals. This role is ideal for technically minded young professionals interested in the social impact potential of data science and data systems work, but who are less interested in (or not currently equipped to) spend 75%+ of their day coding. This role is excellent training for a young professional interested in growing into a product management role, a more technical data science role, or in playing a technology translator role in the social sector.
We are a social-impact oriented organization, so can guarantee incredibly meaningful work tackling some of the world’s most complex international development challenges around the world.
In this role the DSEM Associate will spend 50% of their time helping senior leadership to develop high impact new projects and drive progress on important internal initiatives. In the morning, the DSEM Associate may attend meetings and co-author proposals for a new partnership with the Indian government and then spend the afternoon researching agile project management frameworks to improve team performance. The remaining 50% of the time, the DSEM Associate will support project work for the broader DSEM team – helping design dashboards for a community health worker organization, conducting a literature review on how to combat misinformation spread over WhatsApp, or mining IDinsight survey results for additional value.
We expect a minimum two-year commitment, with regular professional development conversations and potential for a long-term career at IDinsight. The application asks various questions in order for us to get to know you. You will be asked to fill in information including research topics, relevant coursework, geographic preferences and submit relevant documents (resume, brief cover letter, and writing sample). Applications are rolling and considered as they are submitted.
Please note, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. More information, including spotlights of current and past IDinsighters, can be found online at IDinsight Careers. Any questions should be directed to careers@IDinsight.org. IDinsight is an equal opportunity employer and strives to create a diverse and supportive workplace.
