We're a collection of data scientists collaborating with charities, NGOs and social sector leaders to help change society for the better. We joined the worldwide DataKind movement in 2014, as one of the first chapters!
On a project by project basis, we help charities realise the value within their data enabling them to make better decisions about how to run their business more effectively. We have a leadership team with a background in Data Science and a strong history of working within the NGO sector in Dublin.
In the initial stages of our projects we act as independent data consultants, ensuring charities are asking the right questions of the data and that those questions can be answered by what information is currently available. We then assemble a crackpot team of data scientists, Engineers, business Intelligence analysts or anyone who has the passion and drive to help us unlock that piece of insight that can really drive behaviour change for a charity.
Thats where we NEED YOU!
Do you work with data by day, hankering to use your data prowess to find new insights, grapple with the most pressing social issues of our time and rub elbows with inspiring mission-driven organisations?
We are looking for Data Ambassadors (Project Managers) and Data Volunteers (Analysts, Engineers) to help out on our growing list of projects to deliver real value to NGO's. If your employer gives you a number of charity days per year, we would really like to hear from you!
Our projects last between 2-3 months and you will be working on a team of about 8-10. If you are passionate about data, keen to pick up a few new techniques from fellow data scientists all the while supporting worthwhile causes here in Dublin - Then what are you waiting for, SIGN UP!
