EveryDay Labs

About the organization

EveryDay Labs improves student outcomes through the power of behavioral science. We are partnering with school districts across the country to reduce absenteeism because we believe every student deserves the opportunity to learn every day. COVID-19 has made this work even more critical. Every day we strive to live our values: Student-Centered… at Scale, Stronger Together, Behavioral Science at the Core, Innovation Grounded by Evidence and Research, and Fearless about Learning.

Duties

As Data Engineer at EveryDay Labs, your work will immediately improve student outcomes by helping districts across the country to reduce absenteeism and increase learning time for students who need it most -- in the classroom and in remote learning. Your primary responsibilities will be building and automating systems that will analyze student attendance data for our school district partners in order to deliver our programs, write code to configure new district programs and automate processes, and to help our partners make data-informed decisions about their broader portfolio of attendance strategies. As an early member of our Engineering & Data Science team at EveryDay Labs, you will work across a variety of projects, products, and services.

As a team, our goal is to produce software and insights that are proactive, guiding our stakeholders—both internally and in schools—towards the right thing to do next, rather than taking a reactive view or simply describing what has already happened.

Bonus Points for:
Understanding how data is used in K-12 education and the challenges faced by the classroom teacher, principal, and administrator.
Experience working remotely or as part of a geographically distributed team.
