Data Analyst

Job description

Community Tech Alliance is looking for a Data Analyst to drive partner solutions, develop partner resources, lead technical training efforts, and grow CTA’s contributions to the progressive ecosystem. Reporting to our Director of Partnerships and working alongside our product and engineering teams, you will lead efforts to make CTA’s technical offerings valuable to and actionable for partners. As a Data Analyst, you will be a key collaborator to both the CTA team and to our partners, ensuring our tools and technology enable progressive organizations to do their best work. You’ll work alongside the product and engineering teams to shape and maintain our data strategy and governance. You will develop resources CTA provides to partners – be it code, reporting templates, documentation, or other how-to’s – and will serve as a front-line technical advisor. You will recommend best practices to help partners speed their migration to CTA and will continually focus on how to help partners leverage our tools to meet their program objectives.

About Us

Community Tech Alliance is a group of progressive technologists and strategists formed to provide data infrastructure building blocks to the progressive ecosystem at a low cost.

Community Tech Alliance believes strongly that:

  • Inclusive teams are strongest, and supportive work environments take investment, intentionality, and openness

  • Empathy is the cornerstone of building smart technology solutions

  • All team members should take ownership of the project and team’s development

  • Nothing great has been built without making mistakes and learning from them

  • Experience with technical writing; experience designing, contributing to, or managing a documentation platform or knowledge base
