FreeWorld seeks an experienced, innovative, and get-stuff-done Data Scientist. The ideal candidate would be a self-starter; bring expertise in data science, dashboard development, and program evaluation; is passionate about doing mission-driven work; and will be able to work effectively with FreeWorld’s leadership and external partners. This position requires you to both see the big picture – helping us define a strategic approach to data management, analysis, and learning – as well as someone who can get in the weeds and develop approaches to ingestion, data management and governance, and data quality.

You will work with internal stakeholders to understand their needs and help develop approaches to solving key organizational problems.

FreeWorld is a data- and results-driven organization and your work will be at the core of everything we do. We are excited to work with someone who can help us understand exactly how we are doing at executing our mission and help us prioritize where we can do better.

Above all, you are incredibly passionate about our mission and believe everyone deserves a legitimate second chance.

Lead the design and implementation of FreeWorld data and evaluation, encompassing shared metrics across the organizations.
Collaborate with our program and development teams to gather requirements and deliver analytics solutions that provide reporting to internal and external stakeholders.
Work cross-functionally to identify and develop data collection gaps, goals, and processes.

Build visualizations in PowerBI, Kibana, Tableau, QuickSight, or similar business intelligence reporting solutions to enhance existing ways of working.
Make recommendations for new metrics, techniques, and projects to improve students’ experience, and operational efficiencies and build a best-in-class product.
