Accounting/Finance Specialist

Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own? 

Living Goods works to reinvent how we improve the lives of the under-served. We think big, but operate lean and nimble. We train community health workers to bring life-saving products and health services to families’ doorsteps.   Services like prenatal assessments and well baby visits. Products like medicines, fortified foods, and modern contraceptives.  

We also empower community health workers through mobile phones. We teach them how to detect and treat common illnesses like pneumonia, malaria, malnutrition, and diarrhea. We develop smart phone apps to guide home visits and create predictive algorithms to make the best use of community health workers' time.  And we test new cool tools like paperless referrals to clinics and biosensors to monitor infant and child growth.

At Living Goods, you will have the chance to apply your ideas and creativity at work every day.  If you work well in a dynamic collaborative culture, set high standards, and meet challenges with determination and a sense of humor, you’ll thrive here at Living Goods.
