Good Jobs First, a non-profit research center in Washington, DC seeks a research analyst to work on its Violation Tracker project.
This heavily used resource, produced under the auspices of GJF’s Corporate Research Project, collects data on penalties paid by companies for regulatory violations and other types of misconduct. It contains more than 500,000 entries covering federal, state and local enforcement cases as well as class action lawsuits. Violation Tracker’s users include corporate accountability activists as well as journalists, academics, lawyers and public officials. We have also created a tracker for the United Kingdom and are planning a multi-country version.
The applicant should have at least two years of experience doing corporate research on a variety of companies and industries, preferably at a union, an environmental group or other non-profit organization. Applicants should have experience working with big datasets and preferably have web-scraping and data-cleaning skills.
We are looking for someone with a commitment to economic, social and racial justice who is passionate about documenting corporate misconduct and who does not mind sifting through large amounts of data.
Salary range: $60,000 to $70,000. The Good Jobs First benefit package includes a platinum-level health plan (including dental and vision) with a 100-percent employer-paid premium as well as a 403(b) retirement plan with generous employer contributions.
Good Jobs First is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages applications from women and people of color. Occasion travel may be required (when safe). Vaccination required for in-person interactions.
