ATLAS is seeking a Data Analyst to contribute to data analysis and dissemination across multiple projects.
The Data Analyst will collaborate closely with senior staff to conduct quantitative data analyses and summarize findings in tables and graphics. Responsibilities include applying programming expertise to write efficient, reusable, and easily maintainable code to access, analyze and report descriptive statistics and results. Critical to the role is the ability to communicate effectively, work collaboratively with colleagues and be responsive to project needs. The Data Analyst will work on complex assignments and show independence in management of workload and production of quality output. The successful candidate has a proven ability for attention to detail and to independently manage multiple tasks and projects with competing priorities and deadlines.
Our team is focused on ensuring that all students have access to engaging academic assessments that provide actionable feedback to teachers and parents/guardians. A few of the current projects we are working on include analyzing trends over time in teacher perceptions and student performance using survey and assessment data, and creating indicators of students' opportunity to learn from teacher survey data.
Most current team members use R for conducting data analyses and generating reports, but we do have some team members that primarily use SAS and SPSS. The ideal candidate would have experience with R, the tidyverse, R Markdown, and GitHub for version control.
This is a full time, 40 hours per week position. Our staff is predominantly working remotely at this time but may work on-site as needed or desired. We will consider an exclusively remote staff person outside of the Lawrence, KS area for this position.
