About the Role

Dimagi is hiring a Partnerships Manager to join our sales team in South Africa. This position is open to remote employment within South Africa, but can also be based out of our office in Cape Town. 

The Partnerships Manager is someone who gets excited by helping communities in need, ranging from communities in Sub-Saharan Africa to rural India, and making an impact through their work and advocating for the use of digital technologies to serve populations in need. The Partnerships Manager will work closely with all departments of the SaaS Division, as well as with team members across the U.S., Africa and India.

Our product, CommCare, is used around the globe in some of the world's most underserved communities, and the Partnerships Manager will be one of the key members of our team ensuring more people in need gain access to our product. The Partnerships Manager will drive the inbound sales process and engage with leads (users that have confirmed their interest in using our software) and outbound leads (based on research) to help determine if CommCare can assist the community with their needs. The Partnerships Manager will leverage various sales enablement tools to convert them to subscribers.

We are seeking someone who is highly organized, exudes a positive attitude, loves to connect with users and to solve their problems, and enjoys the power of software technologies.

As the SaaS Division grows its sales team and keeps iterating on its go to market strategy, there is significant room for innovation, problem solving, creativity, hands-on experience and learning.
