About Murmuration/What We Do

Murmuration is a political strategy organization that is transforming the politics of education so that every child can benefit from equal access to equitable and high-quality public schools.  

We empower campaigns, advocates, and organizers to better engage and mobilize communities to demand improvements to the public education system. We advise and support our partners in their efforts to plan and execute successful, data-driven electoral, organizing, and advocacy campaigns so that together we can transform the politics of education. And, we build political influence, craft strategies, leverage data and develop technology that enable our partners to accelerate progress, particularly those in traditionally marginalized communities. 


Who We Are

Our team includes experts and innovators in data, analytics, and strategy. We are former teachers, organizers, data scientists, nonprofit executives, political campaign veterans, and more -- and we are looking for people whose passion and expertise can help improve our work and realize our vision. 



Murmuration’s role is to support organizations and communities through our political systems, to raise the profile of the issue of public education such that more Americans will prioritize the needs of our students, and to leverage politics to help to create the broader context in which those on the front lines with our children can thrive. We are focused on transforming the politics of education -- partnering with organizations across the country committed to organizing parents and communities around the issues of public education and educational equity, electing to office and holding accountable local leaders who will make improving public K-12 schools a priority, and advocating for policy changes with the goal of improving outcomes for children. To do this, we believe that it is critical that all of the political stakeholders-- electoral organizations, advocacy and organizing groups, charter associations, networks of schools, districts, elected officials, and voters -- contribute to a strong and politically savvy education sector that works together toward a common vision of improving public education.

About the Position

We are looking for an innovative Machine Learning Ops Engineer who would work with the Data Engineering Team and Data Science Team to design and implement the Machine Learning infrastructure that would allow us to deploy Machine Learning models in production effectively, quickly and at scale. Within Murmuration we use a variety of leading database technologies (AWS Redshift, Snowflake, mongoDB, Redis) and tools (AWS EC2, AWS S3, Python, Airflow) to process and store our existing data.

The Data Team is a highly collaborative, friendly, and hard-working group, and we are looking for team members that embody those values. The Machine Learning Ops Engineer will report to the Lead Data Engineer. 

Note: At Murmuration, we are committed to becoming an even more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
