This team primarily supports Dimagi’s Executive Committee, Dimagi’s governance body overseeing the company’s financial sustainability goals. The team also works closely with Dimagi’s CEO, Chief of Staff, other top executives and strategic leaders across the company. The Business Strategy team offers the opportunity to rapidly leverage a range of skills across multiple areas – including financial modeling, operations, leadership, research, process implementation and improvement, and strategy development – all while making a real, positive impact in enabling Dimagi’s divisions to deliver critical technology to underserved communities across the world.
