Join Our Team
Maisha Meds is an organization dedicated to improving health care in Africa. We began full-time operations in 2017 and over the past few years has grown to support over 2.5million patient encounters annually across Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, and Zambia with our suite of software products. We are building the financial and technology infrastructure to enable global health funders to pay for health outcomes at the last mile, with a focus on malaria case management (and results from a RCT with UC Berkeley due out later this year), injectable contraceptives, prenatal care, HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, and COVID testing and vaccination.
We use data from our point of sale software to design programs that leverage financial incentives to improve uptake of high impact health products. We measure our success by our ability to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare diagnosis, treatment, and prevention for low-income patients across Africa. And we work with a mix of leading global health funders, pharmaceutical companies, and ministries of health to make this happen.
Who We’re Looking For

Executive-level, strategic communications:

One-off, fast analyses and tasks:
These are analyses and tasks of one week or shorter duration, typically exploring a new strategic direction for the organization. These may include:
New partnership development and support:
As we begin to work with a wider range of government, insurance, and clinical partners, many of them require specific datasets and analyses to help assess the potential of our system for their particular use-case. Because these pilots are still at early stages and we have not committed engineering capabilities to support them, we will require custom analyses to help guide their decision-making. This could include:
We are seeking exceptional professionals with 1-3 years of work experience. We are looking for candidates that will help take our organization to the next level of impact and scale. This is a competitive posting for a career–track role, with a two-year minimum contract. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:
