About Mongoose

Mongoose is a new consulting firm dedicated to helping organizations understand and unlock the true value of data.

We believe that being “data driven” doesn't mean making decisions in spreadsheets or spending money on predictive models or dashboards. It is an attitude toward decision-making that puts evidence first and is embraced throughout an organization.

Our mission is to teach organizations, from political campaigns to non-profit organizations to large corporations, how to really be data driven. We have advised on building new data systems, creating new data and analytics departments, and have designed and executed data driven programs for our clients.

We also:

  • Do all kinds of research: surveys, analytics, qualitative studies, user interviews, and more.
  • Help organizations develop and implement political strategy.
  • Help hire for technology and data positions, from entry-level to senior leadership.
  • Make awesome presentations that spark new ideas and spur people to take action.

The position

Senior associates are project managers and drivers of our consulting work. You will work directly with clients managing projects and providing advice. You will also help identify and develop new clients, design and deliver incredible presentations, and get plenty of hands on experience with data.

Do you have a background in data management or data engineering and want to help people do data right? You might be the person we are looking for.

You likely have most of the following:

  • An analytical and curious mindset: you love solving problems and figuring out how to solve them better.
  • Strong project management experience with the ability to handle multiple projects at once while meeting deadlines.
  • Deep understanding of relational databases and SQL.
  • A programming language in your toolkit, like python or R.
  • Strong writing and presentation skills, especially delivering technical information to non-technical audiences.
  • Spreadsheet skills, both for building reports and cleaning up data when necessary.
  • Relentless focus on the customer and their needs.
  • Experience using cloud-based platforms to do work (like Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services).
  • Four to five years of experience with progressively increasing responsibilities.

You may have some of these as well:

  • Staff management experience.
  • Consulting experience.
  • Experience with Hadoop and MapReduce or a NoSQL system like MongoDB.
  • Linux system administration chops.
  • Experience developing and automating ETLs.
  • Administrative experience with AWS or GCP.

Don't have all of the above? That's okay. If you check a few of these boxes and are intrigued then we want to hear from you.

If you join Mongoose, you will:

  • Collaborate on business development proposals and presentations.
  • Help lead client projects, including recruiting and directing independent contractors.
  • Write memos and design awesome presentations to communicate our work to clients.
  • Practice and develop project management skills.
  • Dive into the details with client data.
  • Have fun.

We are committed to building a phenomenal and diverse team to deliver the best service to our clients. We also care about your professional development. Whatever your goals are, we will work with you to reach them.
