Global Senior Analyst

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 believe community health is critical to deliver universal health coverage and that community health workers are essential because they bring health services to people’s doorsteps.

We also help governments transform community health through mobile phones.  Using the disruptive power of mobile technology, we’ve equipped and deployed 7,500 community health workers across Africa. These community health workers treat common illnesses like pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria focusing on children and mothers.  They also provide primary healthcare to 6 million people at a fraction of the cost of doctors and nurses.  And they’ve reduced child mortality by 27 percent.

The secret to our success is a winning team.  One that enables people to bring their ideas and creativity to work every day.  If you work well in a dynamic collaborative culture, set high standards, meet challenges with determination and a have a sense of humor, come work for Living Goods!

Committed to Evidence

Living Goods is growing!  We’ve grown 30 percent every year for the past 5 years. We now have over 400 Living Goods staff and over 8000 community health workers working in Uganda and Kenya. In three years, we will have 1,000 staff across Africa and work with 30,000 community health workers.

We are growing because we have a winning model and mission: to ensure that every family has high quality health care in their community.  No matter how dense the neighborhood or how remote the village.

We’re also growing because we measure what matters. We continuously analyze community health data and use it to hone programs and protocols. Four years ago, researchers conducted a randomized control trial of our work, validating our impact on child mortality reduction and helping us recalibrate programs to better achieve health targets.
