Living Goods (LG) seeks to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved customers by revolutionizing the way community health is delivered in the developing world. To do this, Living Goods not only grows its own business operations, but also dramatically magnifies its impact through large-scale partnerships. Living Goods works with many of the world’s leading visionary organizations across the corporate, social and government sectors. Current partners include the governments of Kenya and Uganda, plus Care International, BRAC and PSI. Living Goods’ future success increasingly depends on the state of the art mHealth, communications, the latest mobile tools, apps and technologies to drive impact.
We have created a Community Health Innovation Network to research, test and demonstrate the viability of community based technical innovations. The Network will house and explore a wide range of initiatives that will integrate traditional public health interventions with technology and diagnostic software and hardware. We are seeking an innovative and dynamic research professional to join LG as the Senior Researcher and to lead a strong, multi-faceted, and diverse research, measurement, evaluation, and learning team. This team will design the research methodology and approach for each new initiative being tested, set the baseline and target metrics for all initiatives, and implement appropriate monitoring tools to ensure that we are adequately measuring progress and results. The Senior Researcher will collect qualitative and quantitative data, audit progress, and measure success as well as continuously use data to generate key reports and learnings related to LG’s performance and impact.
