The Harambee Software Development team is looking for an exceptional midlevel

objective of the role of Data Analyst is to deep dive into our data, helping to

problems, provide insights and in so doing, enable your colleagues to track
progress and make decisions. This role is about solving problems with fit-forpurpose
data and analytics techniques.
Doing this at Harambee will mean doing all that in an organisation that changes
lives and has a culture of teamwork, openness, and collaboration. If this
prospect excites you, then you may be the person we are looking for.
