Our programs provide teachers with powerful tools that help them understand and respond to the needs of all their students. Today, Amplify serves five million students in all 50 states.

We are looking for an experienced Agile Business Analyst to join our team and take internal data analysis and products to the next level. You will both direct a team and act as a data champion.
