The City of Syracuse’s Office of Accountability, Performance, and Innovation (API) strives to help the city make data-informed decisions by helping departments access the data they need, building dashboards to show progress toward goals, taking on advanced analytics projects, and publishing data publicly to better engage residents. In the past several years, the City of Syracuse has launched an open data portal – DataCuse, hosted multiple hackathons, worked to predict water main breaks, and more.

Reporting to the Chief Data Officer, the Data Analyst will work to formalize the process for releasing data to the public, build dashboards that track progress toward city-wide performance metrics, and assist on other data and analytics projects. The Data Analyst will be expected to develop good relationships with key personnel while providing and communicating in a confidential capacity regarding program performance.
