<div> <div> <div>Global Data Developer</div> <div>April 11, 2024</div> </div> <div> <p>PEAS is a fast-growing charity with a mission to ‘expand access to sustainably delivered quality secondary education across Africa’. We run the fastest growing network of sustainably financed secondary schools in Africa. At PEAS, we are passionate about delivering quality education at a low cost, so that we are able to educate the poorest rural communities and replicate our model across other communities.</p> <p><strong>Here at PEAS, we place a huge emphasis on regularly analysing data to make decisions</strong> – which means we collect a huge amount of data, such as enrolment and attendance, annual inspections and assessments, regular student and teacher surveys, exam results, demographic data and reports from our school support teams. This has allowed us to shape brilliant programmes and make regular adjustments, to drive the best outcomes for our students.</p> <p>But we know we can do more. Our different data sets are collected via different methods, and currently sit in different places. We want to build a data platform that brings together and visualises this rich set of data to unlock real-time insights for the organisation – so our teams and school staff can drive better outcomes for every student. This will involve working with our experienced Technology Consultant, our Senior Manager of Operational Excellence and our Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning team to grow our new data platform. There will be lots of opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge in a dynamic organisation.</p> <p><strong>We’re looking for a driven individual who is early in their career and passionate about using technology to make education accessible to all.</strong> If you’re committed and quick to learn with a firm grasp of the basics, we’re keen to hear from you. We’re interested to hear about any experience candidates have in software development, database engineering or statistical analysis – but are open-minded and don’t have any mandatory requirements about exact technologies.</p> <p>As part of PEAS’ strategy, we are increasingly looking to make use of context relevant technology to support school improvement, students’ learning and operational effectiveness. Alongside managing and growing our data platform, depending on your capacity and interests there could also be opportunities to work on other technology projects. Examples could include software development of our flagship SchoolTool+ school information system, developing a mobile app to support teacher development, or building online libraries of PEAS’ tools and materials. At PEAS, we want to work with individuals who are keen to learn and innovative, and be entrepreneurial in how we use technology to solve the biggest challenges in delivering a quality education in Africa.</p> <p>This role will be part of the PEAS Global team – who are located across our UK, Uganda and Zambia offices. <strong>We are keen for this role to be hired into our Kampala or Lusaka offices</strong>.</p> <p>The ideal candidate will have a strong passion for, and some experience with, data management and software development, with an interest in user experience and system design. Experience working in the NGO sector is preferable, but not essential. No matter the role, we are looking for people who believe in what we do and how we do it; is passionate about transforming lives through education and aligned to our values.</p> </div> <div> <div> <a href="https://www.peas.org.uk/app/uploads/2024/04/202403-PEAS-Data-Developer-Job-Pack_Final.pdf">CANDIDATE PACK</a> </div> <div> <a href="https://forms.office.com/pages/responsepage.aspx?id=j9XCzckIxES76fHxNkKFMg4JjaUDv_VMna98w26TdMtUQTVQWDMzOUtISDg0S0FLVTBHODg4VEZIUy4u">APPLY HERE</a> </div> </div> </div>
