BlueLabs is a leading provider of analytics services and technology for government, business, and campaigns. Founded in 2013 by senior members of the Obama for America re-election campaign team, we help our clients optimize their engagements with individual customers, supporters and stakeholders to achieve their goals.
Today, our team counts over 40 data scientists, engineers, and strategists from diverse backgrounds who share a passion for using data to solve the world’s greatest social and analytical challenges. We’ve served more than 400 organizations ranging from political campaigns to advocacy groups, unions, government agencies, and international groups, as well as companies in the automotive, travel, consumer packaged goods, entertainment, healthcare, media, telecom, and other industries. Along the way, we’ve developed some of the most innovative tools available in analytics, media optimization, reporting, and influencer outreach.
The campaigns team at BlueLabs works with political, advocacy, healthcare, and corporate clients to make data driven decisions. This is both a client-facing and data-facing team: we do both analysis and client communications. Team members provide context for our internal data scientists and engineers and explain findings to stakeholders.
What you’ll do:
The Campaigns Director position requires a mix of analysis, leadership and communication. You’ll be responsible for managing a relationship with your clients and leading other staff members in providing the tools and answers that clients need. The Director reports to the VP of Campaigns and will be expected to act largely independently on many projects, particularly in cases where work may be “firewalled” within the company. Directors mange not just their portfolio but the portfolios of their direct reports.
As an advisor and strategist, you’ll be looking at the big picture, but may also need to wrestle with the data itself. As a manager, you are expected to help guide others in project and staff management to help them grow as analysts and leaders toward their career goals.
You’ll be framing the questions our team answers and identifying and communicating trends you and other team members sees in the data using a mix of your own and your team’s analysis, and the solutions and products provided by our analysts, engineers and data scientists.
Who you are:
You are passionate about harnessing data-driven solutions to improve social outcomes
You are familiar with data driven solutions in your field having worked with models or other analytics products before and have a sense for when things are off.
You have strong and broad technical communication skills - you can write for a technical audience, but you can also boil down a model, experiment, or engineering solution to an elevator pitch for a campaign manager or CEO to understand.
You love motivated people, keeping them on track, and helping them succeed.
You’re comfortable being a connector between worlds - you can relate to an analyst focused on the potential academic contribution of her research, and with the head of a department who needs to make time constrained decisions on a budget.
You’ve had experience shepherding a diverse group of people from initial concept to finalized product
You likely have at least 6-8 years of experience as a practitioner in one of the core fields that BlueLabs services including: politics, media analytics, data-driven marketing or market analysis and are familiar with industry terms
