The Global Health Program Manager will manage the execution of macro-eyes global health programs. You will work closely with the macro-eyes Machine Learning team, led by a professor of machine learning at MIT, and partners including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, UNICEF, and USAID.

You will create transformative solutions the world has never seen. You will be a champion for bringing cutting edge machine learning technology to challenging real-world environments to solve foundational health problems: the first predictive supply chain for health, groundbreaking machine learning to understand demand for immunization, the ability to audit critical supply chains by simply taking a picture with a mobile phone. You will execute complex innovative projects and manage partnerships with governments and some of the most influential organizations in the world. You will have the full support of the macro-eyes leadership team and the most advanced AI in the world at your fingertips. You will be able to leverage our network of advisers that include renowned scientists and experts in AI (MIT, UCL, Imperial) and global healthcare leaders.

This is an entrepreneurial role. You must be able to compel a variety of partners (governments, private foundations, corporations), explain new technology, make things happen fast, and seize opportunity. The position is a blend of project manager, solutions architect, and business development requiring applied skills in global health, technology integration, partnership development, and aggressive operational excellence. This position requires the ability to travel internationally up to 25% of the time.
