DataKind is looking for a Senior IT Manager based out of our New York (Brooklyn) office.
Named as one of Fast Company's 10 most innovative nonprofits in their 2017 World's Most Innovative Companies List, we're 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 up with the Grameen Foundation to improve their mobile knowledge programs in Uganda, and joined the American 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. See this TEDx video for more about what we do.
We're looking for a Senior IT Manager to provide sound technical leadership in all aspects of our organization. Strategic thinking and strong business acumen are essential in this role. The Senior IT Manager will oversee the assessment and implementation of our information systems, software applications, data infrastructure, data access, and support systems to meet current demands and to lay the foundation for our future. The Senior IT Manager will be supervised by our Director of Product and will manage IT contractors and staff as needed.
You'll receive a competitive salary and benefits package (including unlimited PTO) with room for growth. Generous employment benefits including 100% employer-covered medical and dental benefits for employees. 401K matching. Professional development opportunities to grow in your role. Finally, you'll collaborate with a small team of energetic, smart, and funny people who want to help the world.
Commitment to diversity is one of DataKind's core values as we work to foster an inclusive work environment. We cannot do our work without collaboration between people with diverse skill-sets and backgrounds. That’s why we intentionally recruit staff with varied backgrounds, cultures, histories, and values to create the rich and vibrant team we need to tackle complex problems. We encourage candidates to include and describe parallel or equivalent experience where appropriate. Women and people of color are encouraged to apply.
