Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for a motivated & diligent Data Associate with a strong passion for completing data projects properly, including best practices on data quality, data management, and data analysis. Our team is challenged every day to sift through reams of data and public documents relating to cites across the U.S. and Canada. We need to extract and understand the key narratives that are important to our clients, while still capturing the adjacent supporting metadata with impeccable attention to detail.

The position will be fully remote with optional access to our Toronto or Milwaukee offices as desired.

Requirements

The ideal candidate has a passion for high quality data, a thirst for knowledge, an impeccable attention to detail, and ability to juggle multiple deadlines in a fast paced environment. They will be able to work independently while also collaborate effectively with the Product and Data Engineering Teams on data that we need to add to our Data Roadmap. They will then work to clean and standardize data; follow our specs and schemas, and use our data ingestion tools to ensure timely and accurate uploads to our Data Warehouse.
The interview process will include data tests that must be completed in order to be considered for this position.

 

What You Will Accomplish

  • Own and manage data collection & cleaning tasks as part of our Data Roadmap and client-specific data projects.
  • Maintain the quality and integrity of Citylitics’s data. Provide insights into the causes of data issues, remedying data inaccuracies, pointing out anomalies in our data, creating dashboards and building custom data quality reports.
  • Maintain our inventory of data sources and complete projects to expand our Data Universe as defined in our Data Roadmap
  • Identify and propose ways to streamline our data collection processes
  • Create and document a repeatable and successful data collection process that will be incorporated in our data ingestion tools and have significant impact on how intelligence gets delivered within the water industry.
  • Monitor and QA the output of our data pipelines ensuring we are achieving our data coverage, quality, and efficiency metrics

 

Requirements

• Undergraduate or graduate degree in Environmental Studies, Journalism, Information Studies, Market Research, or similar.

• Conscientious attention to detail, exceptional project organization skills, complete accountability for your assigned research goals, capable of driving projects independently and an impressive track record on previous projects

• Noteworthy oral and written communication skills; well-articulated in written form and able to present insights concisely and effectively

• Advanced skills in Microsoft Excel and exposure to data modelling and database design is a plus (mySQL, MongoDB)

• A willingness to fail and find dead ends, but learn fast and make immediate adjustments

• Prior experience as a data analyst in capital markets, energy or other industry is ideal, but not necessary

Benefits

Why Citylitics?

  • This is a rare opportunity to influence positive change within one of the biggest societal challenges of our generation (infrastructure).
  • You get to support a disruptive solution with a compelling value proposition into an industry that is eager to hear from you and in a market with no direct competition.
  • We live at the cross section of infrastructure, startup and data science. There is no other team like us in Toronto.
  • There is no corporate bureaucracy here. You will accomplish more here in a few months than what you would in a few years at a large, entrenched technology company.
  • Perks include health & fitness benefits, a training budget and work-from-wherever days in addition to your competitive salary and incentive plan.
  • Receive direct exposure to Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Tech Entrepreneurship and Infrastructure Markets from our in-house subject matter experts and industry titans.
  • We work hard. We play hard. We are on a mission to solve infrastructure. We enjoy happy-hour patios and social events (though virtually these days)!
