Job Description

### **Summary**
American Progress has an immediate opening for a Digital Analytics Associate or Digital Analyst (depending on experience) to join the Digital Advocacy team’s organic social media analytics program to support digital strategies and messaging across the progressive landscape.
With Americans facing an increasing onslaught of news and media content, it has never been more important to amplify progressive policies and build up the necessary communications infrastructure to break through the noise and reach key audiences—and American Progress is committed to leading the way.
A strong candidate for this role will have strong analytical skills, an interest in digital communication, and demonstrated success in team environments. The Advocacy department’s Digital Analytics team is responsible for developing centralized expertise on organic social media to support stakeholders within American Progress and across the progressive space. This team identifies emerging narratives, potential disinformation threats, and best practices on ever-changing platforms, working in close collaboration with the Content Strategy and Partnerships verticals.
This is a full-time position funded for one year—with opportunities for extensions.

### **Responsibilities**
- Work closely with the Senior Director of Analytics and Digital Analyst to help expand the scope of American Progress’ social media analytics program to support partners across the digital landscape and maximize the reach of progressive messaging.
- Develop recurring reports for a wide range of stakeholders—internal and external—that provide clear and actionable insights.
- Create analytics dashboards and data visualizations around specific political moments, partners, or areas of inquiry.
- Conduct analysis on social media data to identify emerging voices, rapid changes in online conversations, and evolving best practices for maximizing reach online.
- Support a growing Digital Analytics team by contributing to documentation, project management, and standardization of systems.
- Perform other duties as assigned.

### **Requirements**
- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience.
- At least two years of professional experience in data analytics, marketing, or other digital media roles for the Associate role, including quantitative responsibilities; at least three years of the same experience for the Analyst role.
- Competency in at least one of SQL, R, or Python (or equivalent data analysis language).
- Excellent verbal and written communications skills, especially in presenting quantitative insights.
- Familiarity with Git or other version control systems is a plus.
- Familiarity with social media and social measurement strategies is a plus.
- Experience with a political campaign or with an advocacy group or nonprofit is a plus.
- Solid understanding of progressive values and policies and how they intersect with the news.
- Detail-oriented and able to juggle multiple projects for different stakeholders, sometimes in rapid-response situations.
- Creative and committed to innovation and experimentation.
- Open to developing new skills as needed.
- A positive team player with a passion for progressive change.
