BlueLabs is a leading provider of analytics services and technology dedicated to helping our partners do the most good with their data. Our team of analysts, scientists, engineers, and strategists hail from diverse backgrounds yet share a passion for using data to solve the world’s greatest social and analytical challenges. Since our inception we’ve worked with more than 400 organizations ranging from government agencies, advocacy groups, unions, political campaigns, and international groups. In addition, we service an ever-expanding portfolio of commercial clients in the automotive, travel, CPG, entertainment, healthcare, media, and telecom industries. Along the way, we’ve developed some of the most innovative tools available in analytics, media optimization, reporting, and influencer outreach.

About The Team:

The Strategic Analytics Team at BlueLabs drives high quality, innovative research and analysis across BlueLabs’ client sectors, including commercial, political, and non-profit clients, to inform data-driven decisions and strategy. Team members analyze and interpret data, provide strategic program insight, drive innovation across sectors, and collaborate closely with both our client and technical teams.  

About The Role:

Fellows will be provided a chance to work directly with data scientists, strategists, analysts, and client leads on meaningful, hands-on work, while being guided and supported by their manager. Fellows will also be expected to complete a capstone project as part of their program with BlueLabs.

The Strategic Analytics Fellow will learn the ins and outs of the progressive analytics consulting space. They will gain exposure to all parts of our analytics process - from collecting and organizing data to using data to analyze trends and patterns that could become useful insights for our clients. Fellows will engage with work that focuses on some of the most important current political issues, all while building professional analytics experience and developing a wide range of technical skills that will be immensely valuable. Fellows will receive strong mentorship by working closely with our staff who have a broad range of knowledge in the analytics space.

The Strategic Analytics Fellow will work with BlueLabs for 12 weeks from June 3, 2024 - August 30, 2024, with the option to be either full-time or part-time based on availability.
