Data Analyst facilitator (f/d/m)

We are looking for talented people to join a dynamic team of 20+ members working on a wide range of projects. Our umbrella covers most projects at the European level of Volt that involve machine learning, data science, data engineering, natural language processing, social media analytics, survey and visual analytics, election debriefs, and campaign/geo-analytics.

About the position

You will work closely with other members of the Data team, managing projects that are valuable for Volt Europa, with a focus on analysing data and creating dashboards and reports. Technical experience is helpful - certain skills are also required - but we do not expect you to be an expert in each of the fields involved. If in doubt, contact us!

Time commitment

Our members’ availability comes in all sorts of patterns. Some only join once every six months and put in 10h all at once, some join only for the team meeting for 1h a week, and some others choose a more regular commitment. The key rule here is: it’s up to you! 

In the position of facilitator we do expect a certain level of commitment, as other people will be counting on you, but if you can make time for us for at least 4 hours per week it should already be enough! We would love for you to contact us, so we can show you around. After that, we can have a chat on the most realistic scenario for the future, and - if you’d like - we can link you to projects. The only thing we ask for is good expectation management. If we are all truthful about our commitment expectations, then collaborations will be way more likely to succeed.

You will

  • Join team meetings for ~1h a week
  • Manage some of our coolest projects that involve data analysis
  • Spend any additional time you choose to commit…
    • Connecting with our team members and joining a project group, or… 
    • Making a project proposal of your own and starting a project group, or…
    • Managing our relationships with other functional teams (internal liaison), or…
    • Managing our relationships with national chapters (international liaison), or…
    • Any combination of the above!
  • Gain lots of experience in a company-like environment
  • Get in contact with many people that have all kinds of expertise within the field of IT (and outside, most of our projects are collaborations with other non-tech teams)
  • Help build and maintain the data infrastructure of Volt Europa

You are

  • A data analyst with some experience in analysing data, creating dashboards and managing projects
  • A dynamic learner, with an open mindset and willing to work within the ever-changing framework of a volunteer organization
  • Good at finding patterns and exploring trends
  • Willing to research the right narrative to frame our analyses, so that it is accessible to everybody

Here is a list of the most relevant skills for this position:

  • An undying love for clean and useful visualization that always convey the message properly
  • Experience with SQL is recommended
  • Experience with Python (or R) - although not strictly necessary, it is highly recommended as Python is our main language
  • Experience with Looker Data Studio is a plus
  • Experience with website analytics is a plus

We know those are highly sought after skills and quite hard to come by, so if in doubt, apply!

If you are interested in applying, please send an email to, and with the subject "Data Analyst facilitator”.
