Helping people connect, communicate and stay in contact with the simplest of technologies.

The Opportunity

Does the idea of making technology work well for people excite you? Are you curious about the role of technology and innovation in supporting community and eradicating poverty? Could you see yourself bringing people from different disciplines and experiences together to discuss, define and deliver technology solutions that support Dignity’s mission as defined above? If so, this is a brilliant opportunity for you to join our team of volunteers and lead one of our Tech Networks. We are not necessarily looking for a seasoned technologist for this role, but we need someone with a passion for people and community, who is able to motivate and justify when and why we use technology for solving community challenges.

The role of Tech Network Coordinator for SMS and Inclusive Communications is focused on developing, coordinating and motivating a team (i.e., a network) of other volunteers with interest, experience and skills in developing and integrating mobile messaging technologies. You will be guided and supported by the Dignity Digital and Operations team. We are initially focused on integrating SMS (Short Message Service) solutions into our comms, as it is a common and pervasive mode of communications throughout sub-Saharan Africa, one of our main community and mission hubs. There is also the opportunity to help us develop and contribute to our technology principle called Least First Design, through publication, practical demonstration, talks and podcasts. Your time and skills will result in people knowing the good news of Jesus and partnering with them against poverty in all of its forms.

·        Maintain and push forward the SMS and Inclusive Communications delivery roadmap, developed together with the Digital and Operations Team
