Homelessness Prevention Systems Manager
Computer Systems Manager
The NYC Public Engagement Unit (PEU) is seeking a Homelessness Prevention Systems Manager to support large-scale City initiatives that use proactive outreach strategies and new technology to connect New Yorkers with vital city services. PEU consists of teams of specialists who are trained to effectively engage New Yorkers and connect them with vital resources. The Unit uses data to identify demographics that likely want or need city services; and works with partner agencies, elected officials, community groups, non-profit organizations, and service providers to interact directly with communities and subject matter experts in all five boroughs. The unit is frequently involved in citywide events, special projects in conjunction with multiple city agencies, and targeted days of action, to broaden our base of support in communities and engage more New Yorkers.
The Manager will serve the important role of leveraging data and data-driven tactics to facilitate and improve operations across PEU's homelessness prevention programs in partnership with agencies and organizations across the city. The Manager will oversee systems used by the unit and its partners for outreach, reporting, data collection, analysis, and integration, and be accountable for the quality and applicability of information collected, procured, utilized and reported by the unit.
The Manager will determine the way data is structured to best ensure that staff will be able to interact with the systems in an intuitive way while capturing as much useful information as possible. The Manager also plays a key role in data sharing operations between PEU and its partners, and data acquisition more broadly. This includes researching additional data sets and investigating opportunities to gain more in-depth understanding of factors around housing and homelessness, to better predict those who will be in need of service and the best means to reach them.
