About The Role

This role collaborates across several teams to guide work that targets the drivers of incarceration.

They delve into questions as diverse as: which interventions and programs lead to positive outcomes and for who, how policy and practice impact the outcomes of incarcerated and supervised people, which portions of the justice system reverberate the most profound bias, and which avenues for impact show the most promise. Our Data Analysts also play a key role in contextualizing and presenting their analyses to key stakeholders, both internal and external. Travel is encouraged approximately once a quarter, but not required.

Core responsibilities

  • Exploring our datasets and those of other organizations to find new insights about the state of the criminal justice system
