Product Manager Job, Engineering Jobs In Kenya February,
Ilara Health is participating in a maternal health project run jointly with the Kisumu Ministry of Health and funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation aimed at improving antenatal care (ANC) and postnatal care (PNC). Maternal mortality remains a significant public health problem in Kenya; especially in Kisumu County, where the maternal mortality ratio is nearly double the national average. COVID-19 has made provision of ANC/PNC services more difficult and resulted in an increase in negative maternal health outcomes.This is exacerbated by the heightened stigma and fear existing during the pandemic, as patients view health centers as high-risk hot spots for infection. This project aims to improve ANC/PNC services through a decentralized model that leverages Ilara’s diagnostic and telemedicine capabilities to deliver improved care.
Ilara was founded to bring diagnostic support and essential tests to patients and providers who currently are unable to access these basic life-saving tools. We partner with companies that are disrupting the diagnostic device landscape, integrate their devices into our tech platform, and offer this diagnostic package plus smart financing to health facilities in peri-urban areas across Africa. As a result, our facilities are now able to offer their patients essential tests through our affordable, tech-enabled, point of care (POC) diagnostic suite.
You’ll be joining a fast-paced startup environment and contribute to projects that will have a real impact on health outcomes.
We’re all super passionate about the work we do, and are looking for people with a drive to make real change in the world.
About the role
In this role, you’ll be focused on delivering software products for our maternal health project to ensure that thousands of mothers receive essential services at a time when access to health is limited due to COVID-19. You will be responsible for working with Ilara’s management team, stakeholders from the Gates Foundation and MOH and third parties to develop, and execute on, the product vision for the project – you will own the project’s software components. You’ll work with two dedicated engineers to translate project requirements into technical specifications and be responsible for setting and meeting project milestones.
While this project is separate from Ilara’s core commercial development, you’ll be a full member of Ilara’s team, work closely with the rest of the team, and have the option to be involved in other projects, time and interest permitting. When the maternal project concludes, you’ll be integrated fully into the rest of the team.
