Dinsight is hiring a full-time data visualization and dashboard specialist (2 to 4 years of relevant experience) to grow our dashboarding and broader data presentation capabilities. In this role the specialist will work with project teams and clients to build dashboards that facilitate data-driven decision making leading to social impact. This could include, for example, building interfaces to help manage on-the-ground efforts to locate out of school children, to introduce greater accountability and effectiveness into social safety net programs, or to deliver socioeconomic data to high level decision-makers in the social sector.
We are a social-impact oriented organization, so can guarantee meaningful work tackling some of the world’s most complex international development challenges around the world.
Grow as a data professional while doing meaningful work
We are working to build IDinsight into a global leader in the use of innovative data tools to solve some of the world’s most urgent problems.
You’ll be joining a growing data science and engineering team and working on highly impactful and innovative projects with our partners. You’ll be joining an entrepreneurial team where you have a strong voice in how the team functions and grows. To be effective, dashboards need to be contextually relevant and build on subject-matter expertise. You will get to work closely with our partners, our team of economists, social-sector experts, and public health specialists to build and test solutions.
Learning is a key part of being an effective data professional. 10% of your time would be dedicated to learning new skills and side projects of your choice. You’ll have strong mentorship to guide your career and you’ll make interesting and valuable connections.
We amplify social impact by partnering with leaders to develop tailored solutions. Our mission is to use data and evidence to help leaders combat poverty worldwide.

Our work spans a wide range of sectors, including agriculture, education, health, governance, sanitation, financial inclusion, and other areas.
We have expertise in a variety of rigorous approaches and methodologies, which we tailor to each client depending on their needs and constraints. To achieve a positive social impact we:
Support clients’ use of data and evidence for routine and major decision-making.
