Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.
Digital technology is transforming the world of international relief and development - the contexts in which we operate, and how we achieve our mission. At Mercy Corps we seek to apply technology to innovating and scaling our impact around some of the world’s most complex challenges. The Mercy Corps Technology for Development (T4D) team collaborates with Mercy Corps’ global teams and external partners to unlock new possibilities that increase program quality, impact and innovation, helping improve more lives through the power of technology. We think beyond today’s context, exploring how we can use current and emerging technology to shrink the global digital divide and help people in vulnerable communities adapt to and overcome evolving challenges. Our mission and purpose are to drive sustainable program impact through responsible application of existing and emerging digital technologies (i.e. digital identity, digital payments, big data analytics, etc.). Mercy Corps is focused on driving the use of digital technologies to maximize scale, efficiency and impact within key strategic outcome areas, such as Food Security; Economic Opportunity; Water and Climate Adaptation; Peace and Governance; and Humanitarian Response.
The Senior Director of Technology for Development (T4D) is Mercy Corps’ most senior leader responsible for guiding organizational and programmatic vision and strategy on the application of digital technology within Mercy Corps’ programs. Sitting within the Programs Department structure, the Sr. Director works in close partnership with the Vice Presidents of Technical Leadership, Program Performance and Quality (PaQ), Innovation, Humanitarian Leadership and Response and their management teams; sector technical experts, and regional and country leadership, all of whom are key stakeholders in various applications of technology. As a key leader, the Sr. Director of T4D works in seamless collaboration with the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and other department leaders to ensure strategic integration with enterprise-level technology priorities. The Sr. Director leads a team of experienced technologists and other subject matter experts charged with supporting the broader organization to apply technology to accelerate and amplify the scale, speed and sustainability of program impact.

Great role for a fact. I'm about to graduate from my IT courses, and I'm looking forward to such fascinating positions to undertake one day myself. We have been discussing with my friends the possibility of starting our own company in the form of an offshore IT consultancy. Basically we were looking into web design and application creation too. Despite the fact that we are very young and such a project is a huge responsibility, we still feel capable after the talk we had with a dedicated team that will take care of all the necessary arrangements in order to have our company in Ukraine started.
You will have to go to the site and read about the job and talk to the employer directly. Good luck.
