About DataKind

Named as one of Fast Company's 10 most innovative nonprofits in their 2017 World's Most Innovative Companies List, we are a global organization that harnesses the power of data science in the service of humanity. We bring pro bono data scientists together with organizations that are dedicated to solving the world’s most pressing challenges. Every day, mission driven organizations apply to us with their data science needs.  We then work to understand their pain points, how their organization works and, most importantly, how their data and other data sources can be used to make the biggest impact on the world.

We’ve helped the World Bank estimate poverty from satellite imagery, teamed with the Grameen Foundation to improve their mobile knowledge programs in Uganda, and joined the Red Cross in using fire data and open city data to understand where fires are most likely to occur. We’ve gained a prominent voice in both the data sector and the social entrepreneurship world and you can find word of us in The Guardian, The Economist, Mashable, and the Stanford Social Innovation Review.  

 

About the Role - Financial Analyst & Accountant

We're looking for a great Financial Analyst & Accountant who is going to keep our accounting systems in line. We're growing so fast that we need someone who can be our go-to bookkeeping, grant management, and financial reporting whiz to support our Director of Operations and Finance. You are obsessively detail-oriented with a background in accounting and can manage our restricted funds flawlessly and down to the penny.  But you’re also wired to see a process, find its gaps, and make it more efficient. This skill set will come in handy when you help us create streamlined solutions to manage departmental budgets, time and expense reporting, and grant compliance and management. Equal parts painstaking precision and results-focused, we’re looking for someone excited to help run the day-to-day with us while always looking to the future.

Reports to: Director of Operations and Finance
