This is an expression of interest (EOI) process, rather than recruitment for a position we've formally opened yet. Submissions will be assessed on a rolling basis. If we see a potential match, and when a position becomes available, identified candidates through this process who meet the selection criteria will be contacted. Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to specific EOI inquiries.

Our vision is to end information poverty by delivering personalized information to households via mobile phones. By providing actionable information and advice to the right people, in the right way and at the right time, we enable poor people in low- and middle-income countries to make better-informed decisions to enhance their livelihoods and well-being. PxD mainly provides customized digital advice to smallholder farmers, but we are expanding into new informational fields, including environmental sustainability education, financial services, and nutrition. We collaborate with partners to achieve scale, and continuously experiment, iterate, and gather evidence to improve our services and demonstrate value. As of Q1 of 2022, PxD reached 6.1 million users across ten countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We are rapidly expanding as governments and organizations look for innovative ways to use technology to provide services at scale and at a very low cost per person.
