Job Description

**About the Race**
As one of the nation’s key swing states, Pennsylvania is familiar with the perennial influx of out of state organizers and single-cycle organizing programs. These programs are designed to maximize voter participation, but often fall short of truly empowering Pennsylvanians to take the lead on civic engagement in our state. Young voters, too, are used to hearing that their votes will save us. At Project 26, we have proven that with the right support, young people are ready to do more than deliver key votes–they are ready to lead.

With over 600,000 college students in Pennsylvania, young voters have the numbers and the power to shape the future of our Commonwealth through leadership in the electoral process.

We’re building a scrappy and innovative operation to protect and expand democracy by elevating youth leadership across the state in order to empower thousands of college students to take control of their futures, get organized, and vote in the 2024 elections.

**What Will You Do?**
Project 26 is looking for a Data Director who knows that conventional campaign data systems often fall short of reaching young voters. We seek someone who is passionate about reaching young voters wherever they are, with the creativity and discipline to adapt conventional campaign data best practices for a universe built by and for young people.

The Data Director will be responsible for managing the Data Department and cross-departmental reporting for Project 26’s 2024 campaign. This senior level position will work closely with the State Director to:
- Work collaboratively across departments to develop metrics, effective reporting, and data tools
- Oversee the planning, development, and maintenance of automated and manual reports and dashboards that assist with tracking program metrics and progress
- Work with campaign leadership and table partners to develop voter contact universes
- Work to develop, maintain, and improve the campaign’s data infrastructure
- Administer and support VAN and other voter contact tools
- All other duties as assigned

**Who Are You?**
A successful candidate for this role will have:
- At least two cycles of campaign experience, at least one in a data role
- Strong organizational and communication skills, attention to detail, responsiveness, and a passion for the work
- Proficiency with VAN, including experience with VAN as an administrator (e.g., managing user profiles and scripts, creating targets, and utilizing and interpreting scores)
- Intermediate or advanced experience with Excel and/or Google Sheets is required
- Proficiency with SQL strongly preferred
- Proficiency with Google Data Studios, Tableau, and/or other data visualization platforms is a plus
- Prior staff management experience is a plus

**Job Details: **Compensation for this role is $7,250 per month and includes health benefits, 401K, and a technology stipend. This is a full time role with a target start date of January 22nd.
