Job Description

Candidates must have legal authorization to work in South Africa. This position is a local position. Visas/work permits, relocation, and expat benefits will not be provided.
Zenysis is a technology company dedicated to building the powerful, collaborative software that governments and international organizations need to confront some of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Countries are using our platform to deliver lifesaving resources to millions in need, track the spread of infectious diseases, and oversee the distribution of vaccines to dramatically decrease death from preventable diseases and more.
We are software engineers, designers, data scientists, diplomats, and public health experts, and we are on the side of those in greatest need around the world. We build data integration tools that allow institutions to have a unified view of their data, and provide an analytical platform for analysts to explore their data and make better operational decisions to serve their populations.”
We’re well funded, growing sustainably, and are run by founders with consistent track records of success. As a global company, diversity of identity and experience is both a moral and business imperative.

Technical Project Manager (TPM)
With responsibilities ranging from client-relations, data analysis, product strategy, and everything in between, you’ll have the opportunity to work with every team at Zenysis while building the skills to lead increasingly large parts of our long term operations and strategy.
At Zenysis, roles aren’t defined by narrowly scoped duties. TPMs take full responsibility for the success of product deployments, including working with analysts and high-level decision makers, running analyses, scoping software engineering projects, collaborating with software engineering, and ensuring that all aspects of technical implementation run smoothly. In addition, TPMs help to lead and develop the business strategy for entire regions, working both internally and externally to craft and assess technical viability of expansion opportunities. Over time, TPMs will be responsible for building local teams that are capable of taking more and more responsibility for development and expansion on themselves. TPMs are based in or near the countries they serve.
As a TPM, you’ll ensure that our mission to empower developing nations and save lives is baked into the heart of every deployment.
