Position Summary

About Datapraxis

Datapraxis is a strategy analytics startup dedicated to helping democracy and progressive politics flourish in Europe. We work in partnership with national political parties and top civic society organisations and foundations across the continent to provide data-driven insights for their most important decisions. 

Our approach uses hands-on connections to national political contexts, comparative insights from cross-country research, and cutting edge methodologies from around the world to help our partners deeply understand and navigate the new political landscape. We get under the surface to research the voter tribes that make up emerging political coalitions, develop unifying narratives, and constantly reassess what we know with message testing and analytics. On any given day, we might be learning how to encourage greater political participation among Roma people, helping oppositions fight a far right or autocratic ruler, or learning what messages engage people to demand action on climate.

Datapraxis is looking for a polling and/or analytics lead to own and run the polling engine that sits at the heart of Datapraxis’ work. We are looking for someone who is excited by the opportunity to build and own a team, processes, and methodologies, and to get projects right in a high impact political insights startup. This position reports to the Chief Analytics Officer.

About the Senior Polling and/or Analytics Manager Role

Your work will incorporate a combination of the following responsibilities. Depending on your strengths and experience, you will:

  • Hire, develop, and manage a talented team of emerging survey and insights analysts, in partnership with the Chief Analytics Officer.
  • Shepherd research projects to completion, from questionnaire drafting through vendor management, data analysis, and the distillation of insights for partners in presentations.
  • Steward the management of Datapraxis’ internal survey processes including our data environment and tooling.
  • Own our methodological approach to survey design, sampling, fielding and weighting. You will have opinions on the measurement of important political and social questions, and you’ll be a champion for the accuracy of our survey numbers.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional leaders, including some or more of: our vendors, to get the most out of surveys and data in the countries we work in; our partners, to communicate results of research and manage engagements; and with Datapraxis’ principals and network of collaborators, to absorb cutting edge methodologies, local political expertise, and insights from around the world into our offering.

We are however keen to meet with promising candidates with a variety of profiles, backgrounds and experience in polling and/or analytics; and we have flexibility to shape the precise remit of the role to the successful candidate’s strengths. 

Datapraxis works both in countries with well established polling vendors we can partner with, as well as in contexts where polling is much more challenging to procure. You should be excited by the cross-country nature of our work, and the laboratories this provides for testing and honing methodologies. We have consulting partnerships with extremely experienced methodologists and the same for engineering, and you can draw on support and advice from these partners to push the frontier and develop Datapraxis’ approaches to polling and non-polling data collection and analytics. 

About You

  • Management–you have experience managing analysts and an aptitude and passion for coaching and developing high-potential team members. You are a strong project manager, and you likely have experience managing vendors.
  • Detail and process orientation–you have strong attention to detail when executing tasks, and a well-tuned sense for helping teams streamline their processes, organisation, and collaboration. You enjoy and have experience working in environments providing support to dynamic political contexts and turning around a high volume of client-facing projects with fast turnaround times.
  • Survey methodology–you can analyse a poll, read crosstabs, and estimate treatment effects and their standard errors; you would be excited by the opportunity to absorb best practices from global industry leaders and implement them, as well as coach analysts to do the same. You might be a passionate emerging methodologist, capable of bottom lining our sampling and weighting approaches in novel and challenging contexts yourself, but this is not essential–the role will be primarily leading the polling team in execution.
  • Insights and politics–you are at home gleaning actionable insight from data and making connections between data science, research, and strategic decision making. You may also be practised at bringing insights to life in visualisations and presentations for non-technical audiences. You are particularly excited about the chance to solve actionable problems for progressive movements seeking to flourish in the face of new challenges, political realignment, and disconnection.  
  • Coding and tech–you likely have at least intermediate proficiency conducting analysis in a statistical programming language such as python, R, or Stata as well as proficiency in SQL. If relational databases and industry best practice tech and data stacks are not a specific expertise you bring to the table, you would nonetheless be excited for the opportunity to build up data assets within those environments.
  • Kindness and team focus–we are building a team that is kind, warm, collaborative, and solutions focused. You share our belief that empathy and inclusivity creates the conditions for great work.

At Datapraxis, we believe that our greatest resource is the analytical talent and domain expertise of our team members, and that a diversity of perspectives makes us collectively stronger. We don’t expect every applicant to have expertise in every area listed above and encourage you to apply even if you don’t feel your resume is a perfect fit. We are also a remote-first organisation–we are open to applicants across Europe and beyond and take regular opportunities for in-person collaboration at our London HQ.

To meet the measure of the challenges we face, we are building a sustainable company for the long term, and we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive team. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with partners who are global experts in polling, political data science, and political tech and grow to your professional potential. You will have access to rich multi-country and longitudinal polling datasets and the ability to answer the political science questions you are curious about. Finally, you will be part of a team that is committed to sustainability and long term impact–we offer generous pension and holiday benefits, including national holidays in your home country, so that you can be your whole self at work and have the energy to solve hard and enduring political problems.  

Our team values inform how we conduct our work every day:

  1. We are honest about what we know, humble about what we don’t.
  2. We connect with others through empathy, openness and respect.
  3. We work together because diversity makes us stronger.
  4. We solve problems rather than admiring them.
  5. We are committed to excellence and impact in all we do.
  6. We find the courage to do what’s right, including when it’s hard.
  7. We do our best to serve the citizens and the common good.

Salary: We offer competitive salary, benefits, and pension packages, commensurate with experience. We are an international team, including team members across timezones ranging from GMT-4 to GMT+4. We offer packages that best suit your country of residence; the base salary range is likely between €80k and €105k, plus pensions and benefits.
