  • Full Time
  • Remote

Website Analyst Institute

Analyst Institute is looking for a community manager to join our Partnerships & Community Engagement Team and work closely with our Donor Partnerships Team. Both teams collaborate to ensure over a decade’s worth of research and recommendations are disseminated across the progressive, social justice, and civic engagement community. We work to build and support a community of a broad range of organizers, campaigners, strategists, donors, institutional funders, and their advisors and provide them with the best available evidence to use in their program planning, implementation, and investment decision making.

We’re looking to fill the community manager role as soon as possible. We will be accepting applications through November 18, 2022.

The Role

We are seeking an excellent communicator with strong project management and interpersonal skills to join the team as community manager. You’ll lead efforts to engage the Analyst Group (AG), our community of over 12,000 practitioners, researchers, and donors. You’ll guide and implement programming that fosters a strong community and educates members about our latest research findings and recommendations. You’ll also manage logistics and infrastructure to support such efforts.

You’ll report directly to the lead communications strategist while working closely with fellow Partnerships & Community Engagement Team members and the Donor Partnerships Team (as well as the broader Analyst Institute team).

As a community manager, you’ll:

  • Write, edit, and manage the production of engaging content (e.g., reports, presentations, web pages, training materials) that translates research into actionable lessons and recommendations, including Analyst Institute’s weekly newsletter, the AG Digest.
  • Develop and implement strategies to equitably and inclusively grow the Analyst Group membership base and deepen engagement with practitioner and donor partners (e.g., building out a new member onboarding process).
  • Lead planning and coordination for community events and trainings (virtual and in-person). Present Analyst Institute’s research and recommendations to progressive and civic engagement audiences (possibly one to three times a year with opportunity for more, if wanted).
  • Manage member engagement tools (Mailchimp, Copper, Calendly, WordPress, Zoom, Gmail, etc.), and monitor metrics across platforms to improve communications and identify gaps in membership and outreach efforts.
  • Maintain and make improvements to Analyst Institute’s website. Support the facilitation of internal and external stakeholder processes to improve its functionality and user experience.
  • Help Analyst Group members identify and access resources that answer their strategic and programmatic questions and implement strategies that solicit their input on how to make our resources even more useful and accessible.
