Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?
Living Goods works to reinvent how we improve the lives of the under-served. We think big, but operate lean and nimble. We train community health workers to bring life-saving products and health services to families’ doorsteps. Services like prenatal assessments and well baby visits. Products like medicines, fortified foods, and modern contraceptives.
We also empower community health workers through mobile phones. We teach them how to detect and treat common illnesses like pneumonia, malaria, malnutrition, and diarrhea. We develop smart phone apps to guide home visits and create predictive algorithms to make the best use of community health workers' time. And we test new cool tools like paperless referrals to clinics and biosensors to monitor infant and child growth.
At Living Goods, you will have the chance to apply your ideas and creativity at work every day. If you work well in a dynamic collaborative culture, set high standards, and meet challenges with determination and a sense of humor, you’ll thrive here at Living Goods.
mHealth is the biggest health transformation of our lifetime. All around the globe, mobile phones make a difference between life and death. They allow families to call for medical help in emergencies. Help rural pharmacists locate lifesaving drugs during stockouts. Enable health workers to track potential pandemics. In developing countries, mobile phones have also transformed community health at the grassroots level.
Living Goods is rapidly transforming into a digitally-led business in order to better serve our communities and other stakeholders. Our belief in the power of technology, mobile phones and phone apps is not unique. These days, everywhere you look healthcare executives and MOH leaders are talking about mobile health. But at Living Goods, we’ve done more than talk. We have created tools, fine-tuned them, and used them to equip over 6000 Community Health Workers and hundreds of supervisors to deliver high impact, low-cost community health services.
We now want to take it a notch higher by strengthening our engineering team to enable us to customise and build high performance and scalable mHealth systems. As such, this is an excellent opportunity for a driven candidate to take on a leadership role where you would be committed to building and maintaining highly productive software engineering teams instilled with the ethos of delivering quality solutions. In return, you will enjoy an exciting, innovative environment that supports flexible and agile working. You would be driving the overarching software engineering strategy and setting the direction for all software engineers within the organization.
