Data Scientist

Job Description

FreeWorld seeks an experienced, innovative, and get-stuff-done Data Scientist. The ideal candidate would be a self-starter; bring expertise in data science, dashboard development, and program evaluation; is passionate about doing  mission-driven work; and who will be able to work effectively with FreeWorld’s leadership and external partners. This position requires you to both see the big picture - helping us define a strategic approach to data management, analysis, and learning - as well as someone who can get in the weeds and develop approaches to ingestion, data management and governance, and data quality. 

The Data Scientist will be a key strategic member of the FreeWorld team. This is the first position of its kind at FreeWorld and you will report directly to the Chief Operating Officer. You will work with internal stakeholders to understand their needs and help develop approaches to solving key organizational problems. 

FreeWorld is a data- and results-driven organization and your work will be at the core of everything that we do. We are excited to work with someone who can help us understand exactly how we are doing at executing against our mission and help us prioritize where we can do better.

Above all, you are incredibly passionate about our mission and believe that everyone deserves a legitimate second chance.
