At Code.org we create and support computer science curriculum that reaches millions of students, and we prepare tens of thousands of teachers to begin teaching computer science each year. The core function of the Analytics Intern role is to help us:
Analyze the impact of our professional development and curriculum programs
Generate dashboards that can empower internal teams and external partners to make informed decisions
Our Code.org platform has become the most popular coding platform in K-12 education. We’re looking for someone who’s passionate about understanding and using data; someone who wants to ask questions and find answers. The responsibility in this job isn't just to answer analytic questions but ultimately to help the team improve outcomes for students, teachers, and schools. This role will help establish the questions to ask in the first place, figure out how to answer them, and ensure we are measuring and collecting the right data across our education products, services, and processes.
Prior industry experience is not required but experience with SQL and a data visualization tool like Tableau is strongly preferred.
Job responsibilities could include:
Working with teams across Code.org (product management, professional learning, curriculum, outreach, advocacy) to design and create actionable visualizations and dashboards
Writing code/scripts/queries as well as using Tableau to analyze the data and find answers
Analyzing student and teacher data collected through our web-based curriculum to understand how we can improve outcomes, including:
Optimizing courses to be engaging, challenging (but not too challenging) and to increase student learning and coding proficiency outcomes
Recruiting teachers and students, retaining users, and increasing engagement

The ideal candidate has a breadth of experience and qualifications:
A degree (or working towards a degree) in applied math, statistics, engineering, computer science, finance or a related field (coursework in applied maths and/or statistics preferred)
