Founded in 2008, R4D has grown rapidly during its first decade, with a diverse set of programs in global health, education, and nutrition and funders that include bilateral donors, multi-lateral development institutions, and private foundations. The current annual budget is $30M and the organization has offices in Washington, DC in the United States (140 staff), Ethiopia, Tanzania and the UK. Outside of the U.S., we employ 21 staff in ten countries.

We have a unique and vibrant culture at R4D and we want to keep it that way. Diversity, equity and inclusion are at the heart of our work environment and help advance our mission. Diversity of ideas, identities, perspectives and backgrounds is vital to who we are and what we do. We seek people who embrace these values and will help reinforce them. Our work culture is collaborative, creative, and entrepreneurial. We operate based on trust and respect. Teams across the organization frequently collaborate on programmatic work and support each other in continuously building a better R4D.


How do we increase access to a cheap, plentiful drug that could save millions of children s lives yet remains widely unavailable in certain markets? This is among the unique and powerful questions you will help R4D s Market Shaping practice answer as a Senior Program Associate. We are a team that has deep experience in helping to catalyze increased access to, and appropriate use of, essential products that help people lead healthier, more productive lives. Using practical and business-driven approaches — from increasing market transparency around the number of potential users, to improving demand forecasting, to developing purchasing and value chain strategies, and to crafting cost-effectiveness and financing gap analyses — our work ensures that the markets for life-improving goods operates with improved efficiency, and that utilization of those goods also increases. We ve previously applied these approaches to achieve more than a billion dollars in savings in countries around the world, improving the availability of high-quality products in health (including for HIV/AIDS, malaria, childhood pneumonia, maternal health, and neglected diseases) as well as in nutrition, education and sanitation.

If that work ignites your imagination, we d love to tell you more and explore how we can work together!

As part of all this work, you will help to manage new and existing stakeholder relationships at both the country and
global levels across the public and private sectors, and effectively communicate our approach and impact.

A successful Senior Program Associate will be highly-motivated; a creative problem solver; have strong analytical, communication, and collaboration skills; and have a commitment to excellence and producing results.
