We accelerate innovation across five platforms-vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations-that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health. You are an experienced developer who has consistently delivered software solutions to your customers. You've seen how your technical decisions have performed over time, affecting the maintenance and enhancement of your software, and you've learned from it. You understand that software engineering is a highly-collaborative, deeply creative craft. You have an agile mind, so you're not afraid to have strong opinions, but are able to change your mind when the data doesn't support your approach. You recognize and embrace the power of diversity, both culturally and intellectually. You have a curiosity about the world and a passion for learning new things. Above all, you're looking for an opportunity to use your skills in service to something greater than yourself, something meaningful, something that has the potential to positively impact people's lives.
