Project Details


Description and Impact

We are a startup company which has largely bootstrapped our way to a global reputation. We have systems in place for shipping, fulfillment, distribution, tracking and quality control. However, as we grow, and specifically, as we take on more complex products like pharmaceuticals, all of our operations and systems need continuous improvement, linked to a system for accurately measuring impact. The impact of a successful project will be measured in a reduction in the number of years it takes for life-saving innovations to reach procurement agencies and frontline providers.  This can be translated into hundreds of thousands of lives saved.  

We are seeking an Experteer to help support our ability to build out systems for scaling. 

Deliverables

At the end of this project, we hope to accomplish the below:

  • A robust plan for operations scale-up over the next three years
  • A clear linkage between this plan and proposed social, economic, environmental and health impact of the company
  • Clear job descriptions for new operations roles to hire 
  • Clear and linked systems for operations, shipping, fulfillment and quality control

Other requirements

We seek someone with an impeccable work history who is interested in bringing state of the art operations planning and executions to a startup team in a pioneering social business. Experience with international trade, medical device distribution or pharmaceutical distribution is a plus.

Our team is fast-paced, mutually respectful and driven by the mission to reduce the number of women and infants dying from preventable causes.
