Operations Analysts

Job Description: 

Øptimus Consulting, a data science and software company, is seeking an Operations Analyst in their Washington D.C. area office. Operations Analysts within the Data Engineering & Ops team will participate in all aspects of work at Øptimus. Our “long-term” projects last one or two weeks, meaning no two days are the same. You'll sit in on meetings and work on multiple projects, pull data used in hundreds of thousands of calls, streamlining our current workflow, and using MacGyver-like skills to munge all kinds of crazy data sets, just to name a few. 

Qualifications:

  • Must be able to learn quickly and juggle multiple projects with moving deadlines.
  • Must have strong analytical skills.
  • Must have some background in using data manipulation tools (i.e. Excel, SQL, R and/or Python) -- you need to know how to do a proper v-lookup in Excel.
  • Having courses or experience in SQL, data warehousing, machine learning, data mining, is especially desired.
  • A passion for politics is strongly preferred.
  • Experience with computer programming is a plus.
  • Experience with political campaigns or similar recruitment efforts is a plus.
  • Knowing how campaigns work, even if you don't think it's relevant – like going door-to-door in a neighborhood or working phone banks – can be very helpful.
  • A mindset that anything can be solved with the right mix of data manipulation tools is a must.  

Compensation:

Internships with Øptimus are paid commensurate with professional and academic experience.

Company:

The Øptimus team has a wealth of diverse life and career experiences that allow us to think outside of the box and ahead of the curve. You'll get the opportunity to work at a firm pushing the boundaries of data-driven decision making; as one client put it, we do “magical things” with computers and math. And have a good time doing it. Life at Øptimus includes lunches on our wrap around patio, debates over who shot first between Han Solo or Greedo, and a nacho cheese machine in the office.
