Stand Up America is seeking proposals to optimize their 2020 electoral program by adding bandwidth to the data & analytics team, with specific focus on dashboards around electoral data, and utilizing API calls to best integrate different organizing tools Stand Up America is currently using.

About Stand Up America

Stand Up America is a political advocacy organization focused on resisting Trump’s corrupt agenda and strengthening our democracy. We’re working to increase voter participation, combat racist voter suppression, and unrig our corrupt political system. This year, we’re focused on protecting and expanding access to the ballot box during the COVID-19 pandemic, enacting bold reforms that will strengthen our democracy at the state and national level, and defeating Trump and his enablers in Congress.

The Data Consultant will join a mission-driven, fast-paced, and energetic team that is currently remote.

Stand Up America celebrates diversity in gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, class, ability, life experiences, and background. We’re an Equal Opportunity Employer — women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

Scope of Work

We are seeking a consultant to build, update, and maintain the following projects:

Voter File Data Pulls

  1. Pull voter file data for a 10-state voter contact operation in target states, and then QA voter file data to help plan out our voter registration, absentee ballot request, early vote, and GOTV programs 
  2. Implement a solution to ensure names that are first seen in ActionKit but have opted-in to MobileCommons can receive opt-in paths over SMS that are both sent within an hour of opting in to the email list and can be customized for the way they were acquired over ActionKit. 

Dashboarding

  1. Creation, maintenance, and upkeep of an voter registration and absentee ballot request dashboards that cross-references the records of people contacted by Stand Up America by a variety of methods (broadcast text, peer-to-peer text, phonebanking, relational organizing, paid acquisition, and email) against a white-labeled absentee ballot request database hosted by Rock the Vote  and VoteAmerica and the voter files provided by TargetSmart and Catalist, hosted in Civis Platform.
  2. Creation, maintenance and upkeep of additional Periscope dashboards as needed to give further insight into our paid acquisition and electoral programs.

Sprints and check-ins will be held weekly, with some of the projects above needing to be started from the beginning, with others in some stage of development that may need to be updated or revamped based on the organization’s needs. 

Goals and Objectives

The goals and objectives of the projects outlined above are the following:

  1. Use the built and updated voter registration and absentee ballot request dashboards to ascertain the efficacy of our voter registration and absentee ballot request programs, with the ability to make adjustments as the programs are still running.
  2. Ensure voter file data and absentee ballot program is being run efficiently and quality is being controlled before voter contact.

Evaluation Guidelines

The success of these projects will be evaluated based on the following guidelines: 

  • Data Integrity – The data that will be displayed in these dashboards could be critical to making programmatic decisions for Stand Up America in the 2020 electoral cycle. It’s incredibly important that the data shown are accurate, even if it means taking more time to produce.
  • Efficiency – Put simply, we’re looking to get this information so we can make programmatic decisions quickly and effectively. We want to build these solutions quickly and effectively, but we don’t want to sacrifice quality or integrity to make that happen. 
  • Scalability – The dashboards and API calls are chiefly important for Stand Up America’s work in the 2020 electoral cycle, but we don’t want to build out data infrastructure to be used once. Ideally, the dashboards and API work could be built in a way that scaling them out to be used for Stand Up America’s advocacy work or for future electoral work could be easily done.

Applications:

A resume and a brief description of the qualifications that would enable you to complete the outlined projects should be sent to the contact below no later than Friday, September 18. Priority will be given to those who could start immediately.
