Data and Development Assistant

Position Overview


Found in Translation was founded in 2011 in order to create opportunity at the intersection of two social problems: health access disparities and economic inequality across race, gender, and ethnicity. Through education and supportive services, we connect top talent in low-income communities with well-paying jobs in one of the fastest-growing fields in the US. Our Medical Interpreter Certificate training and job placement program supports our two-fold mission:

  • To give low-income bilingual women an opportunity to achieve economic security through the use of their language skills

  • To unleash bilingual talent into the workforce to fight racial, ethnic, and linguistic disparities in health care


The Data and Development Assistant will provide administrative and logistical support to Found in Translation’s fundraising and data management efforts. This is a part time, hourly position (​20 hours a week) reporting to the Impact Director, and working closely with the Data Manager. The position is currently primarily remote due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, though in-person work opportunities at our office in Dorchester are available for interested staff, and are occasionally required depending on position responsibilities.  We will continue to monitor the virus to determine when it is safe to have all staff return to the office in some capacity, but will continue to support hybrid schedules.  The work environment is a small, collaborative team that values a diversity of experience and background, and a strong commitment to racial and gender justice.
