Senior Analyst

At Success Academy, we are redefining what’s possible in public education. Since opening our first school in Harlem in 2006, we have swiftly grown to 41 high-performing schools, from Bed-Stuy to the Bronx, serving approximately 14,000 kids. We are scaling to 100 great schools serving 50,000 children across New York City, bringing transformational change here and across the country. We believe all children, regardless of zip code or family income, deserve the life-changing opportunities that a world-class education brings.

To achieve exceptional results for children, we hire the best, and the brightest. We value excellence, ethics, and celebrate diversity, and are relentlessly committed to improving ourselves and our work to enhance the lives of our scholars.

We are seeking a Senior Analyst to join our Data Science and Information Systems (DSIS) department, which provides the software, analysis, and technical infrastructure needed to provide our scholars, teachers, and school leaders the support they need. DSIS’s purpose is to help everyone at Success work better, more efficiently, and with access to all available sources of information.

- Can produce analytic reports and presentations on demand, based on changing and sometimes ambiguous instructions, for consumption/use by senior stakeholders;
