We're looking for a data wrangler who is excited to tell
stories through data, independently of whether they come from a coding,
visualization, journalistic or statistical background. You will work on
various datasets, trying to understand them and to tell their story to a
broader audience. You will also be involved in training efforts, creating and
teaching courses in data analysis to technical and non-technical audiences.

  
You'll be working both on independent research for the new data blog and
together with some of our other projects, such as the the School of Data and
the OpenSpending project.

  
Skills we're looking for:

  
Experience in data analysis and statistical methods

Experience with data cleansing, ETL patterns

Good written communication skills

Experience with R/Stata/SPSS

Coding skill in a modern script language, e.g. Python, Javascript.

Basic skills in information/data visualization

Energy, enthusiasm, and a willingness to be creative and flexible

Knowledge of Spanish / Portuguese would be an asset

While we will consider applicants based anywhere in the world, proximity to
one of our clusters in London or Berlin is preferred.

  
This role reports to the Head of Open Knowledge Labs, which is the part of
OKFN Labs dedicated to activities like School of Data, training, handbooks,
and so on.

  
**About the Open Knowledge Foundation**  
The Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN) is a multi-award winning community-based,
not-for-profit organisation. The Foundation now has projects and partnerships
throughout the world and is especially active in Europe. We build tools and
communities to create, use and share open knowledge - content and data that
everyone can use, share and build on. We believe that by creating an open
knowledge commons and developing tools and communities around this we can make
a significant contribution to improving governance, research and the economy.

  
We're changing the world by promoting a global shift towards more open ways of
working in government, arts, sciences and much more. We don't just talk about
ideas, we deliver extraordinary software, events and publications.

  
**About Labs**  
Open Knowledge Labs creates services and tools that unlock the digital commons
for everyone. Under the Labs umbrella fall both civic software and literacy-
building projects which complement each other by filling knowledge gaps to
empower advocacy groups, journalists or the average citizen to use technical
tools speed up, streamline and substantiate their work. At the same time,
Labs' software projects are inspired and guided by the needs identified
through our work with data users, with the constant goal of putting advanced
techniques for information acquisition, processing and analysis at the hands
of those who need them to change the world.

  
The Labs team works as a distributed group, with clusters in Cambridge (GB),
London (GB) and Berlin (DE). If you are in one of these places, we'd hope to
meet you regularly during work hours. We often travel, though, and coordinate
through Skype, IRC and our mailing list.

  
**How to apply**  
If you'd like to apply, please email [log in to unmask] with the subject line "Data
Wrangler (Labs)" before 21st November including a link to a 30 second video
clip in which you pitch yourself as a candidate, or try and condense and
explain a data-wrangling concept into a few simple steps suitable for a layman
via a medium of your choice, together with your CV.
