Is this the right position for me?
Our Field Manager program is designed for adventurous, adaptable, self-motivated people who are seeking field experience. They are public health experts, project managers, software engineers, consultants, researchers, former lawyers, and students. While we require a 24-month commitment for this position, employment at Dimagi is open ended. This makes it a great position for someone seeking to build a career in international development.
All first-year Field Managers receive a salary that covers their living expenses for the year, including food, housing, travel, and leisure activities, encouraging a ‘frugal but comfortable’ lifestyle. All project travel is also reimbursed. Field Managers will receive a significant salary increase in their second year, as well as have the option to take on increased responsibility in their long-term careers. Dimagi is very flexible in terms of growth and career progression, and is often able to accommodate people’s interests in defining their current and future roles.

- Do you like travel? You will get significant travel experiences, often to very off-the-beaten-path locations (where the real work happens). You will also get unique opportunities to travel internationally within your first two years, either to a different country for project travel, to a different country office, or both.
- Extensive onboarding. This includes 1 – 2 weeks of training, followed by shadowing on existing projects, location depending on project availability.
- Team Summits. The entire team will get together at least annually to meet each other, discuss goals, debate strategy, and have some fun. Read about two field managers’ takes on summits in Cape Town and Dakar.
- If you are asked to move to a country that is not where you are from, you are eligible for one roundtrip flight home per year, paid for by Dimagi.
- ‘Personal Initiative Days’. This is blocked off time, outside of work responsibilities, to come up with tangible outputs of impactful ideas that align with your job.
- Each year, you will get 30 days paid time off.
