Senior Data Architect

GiveDirectly (GD) is seeking a Senior Data Architect to play a leadership role in architecting GD’s central cloud data operations and analytics.. This is a unique opportunity to apply your expertise in the fastest growing non-profit of this century, by leading an infrastructure scaling strategy to keep pace with its growth. 

GiveDirectly has quintupled in scale over the last five years, distributing nearly a billion dollars to recipients living in extreme poverty in 11 countries (soon to be 14). As the organization has scaled, the breadth and depth of its data has become unwieldy. The current data architecture spans multiple systems, including two instances of SalesForce (which contain data on the donors who fund GD programs and the recipients we send payments to) and a Finance system of record in Sage Intacct. 

To reach the next billion recipients, GD is looking for a leader to design, build, and maintain GiveDirectly’s integrated cloud data architecture, including:

  • Design: Solidify GD’s cloud data architecture and visualization vision, gather cross-functional requirements, and align  internal and external stakeholders.
  • Build: Define the data flows, data relationships & data management across various applications and platforms, and build GD’s enterprise data model, ingestion and database infrastructure.
  • Manage: GD's new data stack, and deliver combined, transformed, tested, documented data sets to GD’s internal teams; these transformations & datasets will be the foundation of new fundraising products which are expected to raise millions in funding for recipients each year.
