Data Manager

At Inciter, we know that nonprofits are overwhelmed by data and reporting. We use cutting-edge data analytics tools to create effortless and accurate reporting for them so they can improve their programs, focus on their mission, and get back to making the world a better place. 

When you make data easy and accessible for nonprofits, you elevate social change all over the world. 

At Inciter, we don’t hold you accountable for simply showing up, but rather for the results you create. You’ll always know whether you are winning or not. 

In this position, your main responsibility is to manage data technology projects, ensuring clients are satisfied and that the projects are profitable. 

To create this result you will:

  • Manage and coordinate multiple projects to ensure they are completed on time and within budget, and at least 20% profitable
  • Organize and plan project tasks and schedules
  • Manage tasks in accordance with the project management standards at Inciter
  • Communicate project status to stakeholders and key project participants

  • Optimize project deliverables, schedule, and budgeting
  • Work with proposal teams to develop cost estimates and project plans
  • Update project management tools on a regular basis
  • Keep the project team focused on the end goal

In addition, you will specialize in an area of technical expertise related to either data analytics or data visualization.

  • Are able to build visualizations (for your projects and others) in the BI tool that you specialize in. 

At Inciter, our people are:

  1. Good Communicators - We communicate with each other and with our clients in a way that is responsive, clear,  and helpful.
  2. Analytical - We think through things logically and help others to use data in an objective and yet powerful manner.
  3. Profit Minded - While we are passionate about social change, we keep an eye on the bottom line, because if we aren’t profitable, it’s probably because we aren’t solving problems for our clients. 

We look for people who:

  • Listen for Needs: We ask each other and our clients how we can be of assistance. We support each other and those we work with. 
  • Review Processes/Results: We review our processes quarterly to see if they can be improved or automated. We conduct quarterly reviews of projects to see what has changed and if we need to bring new processes to the work to make it more helpful or more efficient. 
  • Respond but Don’t React: When clients contact us we respond within 24 hours, even if only to tell them when we will have a result for them. But we don’t engage in firefighting, internally or externally. 

You may be required to attend monthly on-site team meetings in Washington, DC . You will attend meetings related to projects. Most of our projects are in the Mid-Atlantic region. 

At Inciter, we believe that every person brings unique skills, perspectives, and experiences to the table. We recognize that diversity drives innovation, and we strive to create and maintain working and learning environments that are inclusive, equitable, and welcoming. If you feel you’re a good match for this position and for Inciter’s culture, please apply even if you don’t meet every requirement.
