Research and Analytics Analyst

Datapraxis is hiring at both senior and entry level roles on our growing team. We are looking for both established political researchers, analysts and data scientists, as well as people looking for their first role in this field.

At Datapraxis, we value a T-shaped skillset, where our analysts have strong foundations across a breadth of skills and a depth of experience in particular areas. Our core competencies are: Data management; Engineering & technology; Data science & methods; Analysis & Insights; Insights Communication; and Management.


Our work is cross-functional and high impact. A typical project might combine polling and research, data science, and insights generation and presentation. Analysts will have the opportunity to play both junior and senior roles on project teams across core functions and to grow professionally.

As an analyst at Datapraxis, your work will incorporate a combination of the following responsibilities. 


Depending on your experience you may contribute to or lead: 

  • The delivery of polling research projects that dig under the surface of enduring political strategy questions–from questionnaire drafting through vendor management, survey mechanics execution, survey data management and quality control, and data analysis. 

  • The conceptualisation and execution of statistical modelling projects, including with GDPR-compliant strategies that meet the needs of strategic and tactical decision making in novel contexts–from data preparation and management, quality assurance, exploratory analysis, model building (for example cluster modelling or MRP), and analysis of model findings and results.

  • The distillation of actionable political insights from research and data, as well as to the preparation of client-facing deliverables–including through visualisations and presentations. 

  • Datapraxis’ management and development of internal survey and open data processes–including our database, polling data pipelines and processes, and data assets.

  • Collaborate with data science leads, analytics leads, research leads, and political domain experts to create outputs that are locally relevant, strategically actionable, and serve our greater mission.


Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
