Happy Friday! We’ve been busy this week, between hiring for not one, but two! new contractor positions at Upwell, planning some exciting projects, and keeping our eyes on #RightsCon
to make sure we have an Internet that values equality, freedom and security for all (because how would we do what we do if that weren’t the case?).

Upwell Seeks An Analyst
You’ve probably gotten the message by now that we’re hiring a Tide Report writer. We’ve got lots of very impressive applications and are moving into the next step in that process. (If you haven’t had a chance to send in an application or spread the word, time’s running out!)
But we’ve got even more news on the hiring front. That’s right, we’re looking for yet another narwhal (like unicorn, but real). This time we’re looking for someone who loves data and wants to dive into the Big Listening work that we do. Specifically, a Social Media Data Analyst.
Help us monitor the success of our distributed campaigns, measure the scale and volatility of issue-based conversations, track down social mentions all over the interwebs, and understand the character of conversations at the movement level. Comfort with statistical analysis is important, as is a knack for visualizing data.
Come play with us!
