DIAL is a new global alliance to enable the digital ecosystem to deliver greater scale, efficiency and social impact as it creates more inclusive digital economies in emerging markets. Working with partners, DIAL will generate evidence of what works through field-based projects, distil insights and tools to promote scale-up and replication, and provide mechanisms for co-investment throughout the ecosystem. DIAL is hosted by the United Nations Foundation, and the team is based in Washington, D.C.
DIAL is seeking a Fellow ready to contribute to their advisory support to open source products used by humanitarian and international development organizations. Organizations build software when they can't find a product that meets their needs. After they are built, the burden of maintaining and supporting these systems can be challenging, especially for organizations that are not technology companies. DIAL supports these products through consulting on technical architecture, open source community development, and sustainable business models. The Fellow will work closely with the Director of Business Planning to develop a portfolio of recommendations for business model and revenue stream considerations.
