The primary responsibility of this role is to further MSI’s Goal: The Prevention of Unwanted Births and its mission of ensuring the individual’s right to**: children by choice, not chance.**

The Role:

Marie Stopes International has initiated a programme to radically transform the health systems used by its clinics, outreach teams, franchisees and support offices around the world. MSI are looking for an Applications Analyst to help expand and improve these systems.

We are rolling out a new open source health system to our franchisees around the world (DHIS2), for which you will be trained to provide configuration and maintenance support to the roll out. You will also help to maintain our existing CRM system in use across our clinics and outreach teams globally. For this, experience in databases, mySQL, Java, Javascript would be an advantage, but most importantly a keen interest in systems and an ability to quickly assimilate with new technologies.

This is a great role for an experienced systems analyst, or a recent information systems graduate looking to expand their knowledge base.

About you:

You’ll probably have a Computing or Maths related degree, or similar qualification or experience. Knowledge and experience of basic networking, development methodologies such as AGILE and Waterfall, and administering and configuring virtual machines will be useful but above all, you should be someone who enjoys problem solving and be able to research and learn what is needed. You’ll be supporting all our country programmes worldwide and will need to communicate clearly and effectively at all levels.

Prior knowledge / experience of DHIS2 is not a prerequisite. We work in a friendly collaborative environment, so you’ll receive great support, but you should be comfortable investigating and solving problems on your own.
