Director - Human Resources

This is a terrific HR opportunity in the NGO/non-profit sector. Digital Green (a non-profit based in New Delhi, India and with operations in the US and several countries in Africa) is looking for an HR Director to build and lead their HR function. Digital Green was spun off from a project started in Microsoft Research India in 2008. Ever since then, this organization has attracted funding from organizations like the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, World Bank, and USAID. It has grown to become a 75 people organization and plans to grow rapidly in the next 2-3 years.

So… if you want to lead the HR function of a growing organization which is making a real difference in the world, you must apply for this role!

Digital Green engages and empowers rural communities to produce participatory localized videos, leveraging pre-existing community groups to disseminate these videos through human mediation. These videos are of the community, by the community, and for the community, sharing information and practices that are relevant and that meet the needs of the local community. In 2013, Melinda Gates named Digital Green as one of the four ideas that are changing the world. With roots as an innovative project at Microsoft Research India, Digital Green became its own non-profit organization in 2008. Since then, they have reached nearly 8,000 villages across India, Ethiopia and Ghana, produced more than 4,000 videos in over 28 languages, and improved the lives of more than 640,000 community members of which 70% have been women.

Digital Green is focused on expanding effectively and efficiently. With a goal of reaching 2 million households in South Asia and Sub Saharan Africa by 2018, Digital Green is rapidly building strategic partnerships, identifying new sources of funding, and leveraging innovative technology in order to provide more communities with the tools they need to live with dignity.
