Position Overview 

Educate!, a fast-growing non-profit social enterprise, is looking for a Strategist to lead our growing education system solutions work in Rwanda and Kenya. In this role, you’ll help build repeatable and impactful program models in collaboration with governments to solve the mismatch between secondary education and life after school, as we work towards our organizational vision of measurably impacting 1 million students across Africa each year.

We have already partnered with governments in Rwanda and Kenya to support skills-based curriculum reforms through our education system solutions, and results from a rigorous impact evaluation have shown that our cost-effective solutions create a real impact on youth through national education systems. The Strategist will work closely with Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, government engagement teams, and our programs teams in Kenya and Rwanda to continue developing program models that support long-term changes to education systems and meaningful, sustainable curriculum reforms.

The right person for this role will:

  • Have experience in education, either as an education expert or through developing products in the education sector.
  • Make data- or evidence-based decisions. Experience running experiments, product development processes, or human-centered design processes is a plus.
  • Be motivated to work with government education systems to create a broad and sustainable impact on youth through those systems.
