About this job
The Partnership is seeking a full-time Manager of Data & Impact. The Manager of Data & Impact is a member of our small-but-mighty Data & Impact team, and reports to the Senior Director of Data & Impact. This position will have the opportunity to collaborate to produce reports and projects that have real-time impact on our schools, students, and staff. The Manager of Data & Impact will be responsible for building and managing org-wide data systems, and will focus their time and energy on developing and maintaining dashboards and data for students within our network, including academic, attendance, and college data. The Manager of Data & Impact works closely with team members in the organization – including school-facing staff, Partnership executive team, school administrations, counselors, and teachers – to build out reports that are accessible and able to be maintained by Partnership staff members. The Manager of Data & Impact will also work to provide in-depth and accessible analysis on key metrics to Partnership teams. This is a full-time, year-round position.
The Partnership is committed to continuously building an anti-racist culture that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in classrooms and in our home office. The Manager of Data & Impact will be someone who is committed to implementing these values in creative ways when executing day-to-day tasks and responsibilities.
COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
The starting salary range for the Manager of Data & Impact position is $78,481-$84,799. Starting salaries are dependent on experience, skills, market rates, and pay equity among current staff members. The Partnership also offers a robust benefits package including employer-paid health, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their dependents; a 403(b) retirement program with employee match and vesting; parental and sabbatical leaves; a professional development allowance; and generous paid time off.
The Partnership’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to our compensation practices. Our goal is to ensure that pay is fair for all staff members who hold many intersectional identities – new and tenured alike. When we set salaries for new team members, we consider market rates, pay equity among staff in similar roles across the organization, skills and experiences required for the role, and organizational budget. Because of all of these factors, the majority of new team members do not begin at the top of the salary range provided.
