What is Crisis Text Line (CTL)?

Millions of teens are quietly suffering every day. They struggle with bullying, homophobia, suicidal thoughts and more. The solution is beautifully simple. We’ll provide crisis intervention services to teens via a medium they already use and trust: text. And we use insights from our work to develop and share innovations in prevention, treatment, and long-term care.

CTL is a not-for-profit tech start-up, born from the rib of DoSomething.org. We launched in select cities across the U.S. starting in August 2013 and aim to be nationwide in 2014.

 

Responsibilities:

The Data Analyst’s role at Crisis Text Line is to be the smartest person in the room – not because he/she always know the answers – but because he/she know how to find the answers. At its core, Crisis Text Line is a data-informed organization. Every strategy conversation begins with what does the data say, whether from competitive analysis, academic or industry research, or our own data.

The Data Analyst’s day-to-day role is to analyze large and fast moving data sets and detect changes in our users’ behavior. His/her goal is to inform (1) product iterations and pivots, (2) organizational strategy, (3) how CTL shares data. A successful candidate will possess strong skills in analytics, statistical programming, and/or qualitative research, and a steadfast sense of curiosity. Finally he/she should have passion for sharing insights with staff, institutions, and the public. Ultimately, our data must drive behavioral change.
