Data-driven decision-making is tremendously important in the education industry. Schools and districts have complex goals extending from ambitious strategic plans, and making measurable progress requires gathering and analyzing large amounts of data. For some, data analytics is primarily a means to improving pedagogy, curriculum, and student performance. While the core academic program should indeed benefit from data analysis, this is only the beginning.
YouthTruth was developed on the simple premise that giving students a greater voice – and truly listening to their feedback – can fundamentally improve educational planning, strategy, and decision-making. Launched in 2008 by The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP), YouthTruth is a national survey project that gathers feedback from students and other stakeholders. YouthTruth then empowers administrators and education funders to make better decisions affecting those students. Put simply, YouthTruth gives students a voice through data and analytics, and then guides administrators to harness key insights to ultimately serve students and families even better.
Having enjoyed tremendous success over the last decade, YouthTruth now boasts more than one dozen employees distributed onto three teams: partnerships and external relations, client services and operations, and data systems and analytics. The data systems and analytics team comprises five professionals in roles that include analyst, developer, and software architect. For the last several years the YouthTruth executive director herself has led this team, but with more growth on the horizon, YouthTruth now seeks a full-time manager of data systems and analytics to assume responsibility for this mission-critical functional unit. One component of the job is people-focused: guiding a team and providing growth opportunities for a talented staff. Another equally important component involves product and project management.
As a part of CEP, a nonprofit with about 50 employees that includes the YouthTruth team, both YouthTruth and CEP collaboratively manage in-house enterprise applications while also leveraging best-in-class third-party data systems. The manager of data systems and analytics will be part of a shared technology team that includes other YouthTruth and CEP staff in charge of workflow improvements, system migrations, and application developments. YouthTruth seeks a manager of data systems and analytics that can work on-site at the San Francisco headquarters three days per week. The manager of data systems and analytics reports to the executive director and serves on the YouthTruth leadership team.
