Kudalira is seeking a Technical Development Officer to build the data analysis capacity of workers as it pertains to software tools throughout Malawi. This officer will support Kudalira initiatives which aim to help Malawians gain information technology skills in within private sector development, community outreach, and monitoring and evaluation initiatives.
Kudalira recognizes that many schemes in Malawi still are not as technically effident as they could be. In addition, many types of monitoring and evaluation are done intermittently, and without proper statistical framing. Though the tools to increase technically proficiency within Malawi exist, they are used haphazardly, and without a set schema or program. Kudalira as part of its strategy will be developing solutions to address the weaknesses in this area of Information Technology with the hiring of a Quantum IT Development Officer. This officer will develop curricula, and provide counseling to a variety of projects which Kudalira is associated with, and help staff from various organizations to learn different software skills, and the corresponding frameworks associated with them. Examples of this are: statistical data cleaning and visualization in R, map creation in QGIS, and survey development in CommCare and ODK. A key aspect of the position is utilizing opensource tools, such that any level of organization will have the ability to deploy them effectively, regardless of financial constraints. In addition to this, as a significant component of engagement will be spread across the private sector, experience in working with projects or programs which involved the private sector as clients, partners or implementing agencies would be an added advantage.
