Dimagi is looking for exceptional software developers to join our team. We are a small and growing social enterprise based in Boston but our systems are deployed primarily in rural Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We offer a fun and stimulating environment, a chance to see the world, and to make a difference in places that need it most. At Dimagi, you can do right by coding well.
What We Do
We work on a broad range of issues, including strengthening community health programs, electronic medical records, care coordination, and remote data collection. We have projects in over 25 countries including Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, Ethiopia, India, Bangladesh, Senegal, Mexico, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Kenya, Afghanistan and the United States.
What We Are Looking For
We are seeking a full-time programmer to join our core team in Boston and lead or support development on multiple projects. The ideal candidate prefers small organizations to large ones, multi-tasking to single-project assignments, significant international travel, and a highly social atmosphere. Our developers share a passion for rapid prototyping, new technologies, making things work in challenging environments, and seeing the impact of our work first-hand. We view our culture as one of our greatest assets, and culture fit is as important to us as technical expertise.
We are highly collaborative with partner organizations, strong advocates for open source, and believers in building local software capacity in the countries where we work through our “Coded in Country” initiative. Love your work. At Dimagi, you will have tremendous freedom to pursue your own interests and grow your skill set as well as make a real impact across the world. Our developers are a tight knit group and do things like convince the CEO to let everyone go to Brazil for a month because Boston’s weather sucks in February.
Our team has traveled to over 20 countries in the last 5 years. The position is available immediately. Please send your resume and cover letter to jobs [at] dimagi [dot] com.
