Are you a change maker who wants to play a pivotal role in restoring vision for millions of people in frontier and emerging markets? Would you like to work for an organization that is a pioneer in social impact practices?

We are seeking a highly motivated, dynamic, and self-driven candidate who would like to have a challenging and meaningful career path in AI deployment in a social enterprise. The candidate should be dedicated and sincere towards her/his work and should always be open to learning new things. The candidate should have in-depth subject matter knowledge, expertise, and experience. Timely and high-quality delivery of goals would be essential and will be a key performance measurement criterion.

About You

  • You are passionate about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it can benefit a social enterprise.
  • You’re up to taking on new responsibilities and challenges as your role evolves with your personal and professional growth.
  • You are motivated to take on new projects as your role evolves with your personal and professional growth.
  • You have great follow through, are deliverable and deadline oriented, and have an eye for detail.
  • You are interested in working in a global fast-paced and dynamic environment.
  • You’re a team-player, ready to work alongside a vibrant global team.

About Us

  • We are creating access to affordable eyewear, everywhere. Clear vision creates opportunities for increased learning, work, safety, civic participation, and quality of life.
  • As a social enterprise, social change motivates us first. Our focus on sales and revenue targets serves and advances our mission objective – to increase functioning, productivity, and income earning potential for our low-income consumers by correcting refractive error with eyeglasses.
  • We are working to transform the systemic dysfunction of an optical market that has failed to deliver eyeglasses – a 700-year-old technology – to 2.5 billion consumers in need of vision correction, most of whom live on less than $4 a day.
  • We serve low-income consumers, not as beneficiaries but as customers. Our customers expect a high quality and affordable product, and they will spend limited discretionary income for the immediate and tangible benefits of vision correction.
  • We run our operations on metrics and social impact measures. We leverage a range of processes and practices to get the work done.
  • We believe in scaling our impact, not our organization. We are a lean team of doers.
