Murmuration transforms how advocates and organizers identify, engage, and mobilize people and communities. Our focus is on driving change and accelerating progress toward a future where every child in America has the opportunity to benefit from a high-quality public education.
What We Do
We provide sophisticated data and analytics, proprietary technology, strategic guidance, and programmatic support to help our partners increase civic engagement and marshal support so necessary changes are made to improve our public schools. Our precise, predictive intelligence and easy-to-use tools are used by practitioners and funders, on their own and working together, to make informed decisions about who they need to reach and how to achieve and sustain impact.
Who We Are
Our team includes experts and innovators in data, analytics, and strategy. We are former teachers, organizers, data scientists, and campaign veterans, and we are looking for people whose passion and expertise can help improve our work and realize our vision.
Since 2014, Murmuration has established itself as a trusted resource for our partners who include the leading practitioners and funders who believe our public schools should be safe, learner-centered, and well-resourced, so they can serve the needs of future generations, irrespective of background or circumstance. We have demonstrated that our data, analytics, and technology can improve advocacy and organizing outcomes. We have also made early contact with key players across the sector, notably funders and vendors, already working on these and related efforts. Through our work, we have confirmed that to be successful, and to achieve our long-term goals, everyone committed to massively improving public schools and ensuring every child across this country has equal access to quality education must be aligned. Our collective efforts must be focused, disciplined, and the work must be collaborative and wide-ranging. At the same time, we recognize that it will take more than our current offerings – and particularly how and where they are being used, and by whom – to drive sustainable change.
We believe that Murmuration is uniquely positioned to facilitate more coordinated decision-making and collective action among practitioners and funders. We enable and promote collaboration and learning among partners. Our work expands and diversifies the political activities in support of quality public education, and, by sharing our insights so others can learn, we help to advance individual and collective efforts that align with and accelerate progress towards our vision. In short, we believe our perspective on the critical role of politics in transforming public education, the processes to engage in during the journey, and the belief system that underlies the importance of traveling in a particular way, should be broadly understood and embraced by others.

Excellent product design fundamentals, including visual design, UI design, interaction design, and information architecture

Comfort strategizing at a high level then breaking down and targeting the tactical pieces to realize the vision in a phased approach
Ability to use and contribute to our design component library to drive consistency and reusability throughout our suite of products
Understanding of accessibility and responsive/adaptive design to accommodate different form factors
A bias for action and the ability to thrive working in fast-paced climates (e.g., start-up or similar)
A strong commitment to data-driven decision making: welcoming both qualitative and quantitative data on the impact of our products to enrich the iterative design process
Proficiency with industry-standard design and collaboration tools such as Figma, Adobe Creative Suite, Jira, and Miro (or equivalent)
A portfolio that showcases how you designed real world solutions and the role you played in bringing them to life (online is preferred)
What you could have:
Experience with CRMs, political or advocacy campaigns, and/or civic organizing products
Experience with analytics tools such as Pendo, Mixpanel, Fullstory, Google Analytics, or similar
Design expertise in data visualization
Visual identity branding experience
