Finance Director Job Vacancy

Finance Director

Kampala, Central Region, Uganda 

 GiveDirectly aims to reshape international giving. We provide an end-to-end platform that enables funders to provide direct cash transfers to the extreme poor. 

We are among the fastest - growing international development non-profits and are recipients of a Google Global Impact Award and a top rating from GiveWell.

Our unorthodox approach – allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose how to invest – has driven debate both in press and policy circles (e.g., NPR’s This American Life, Foreign Affairs, The Economist, New York Times, The Guardian). 

We are also known for our extensive integration of technology into field processes; our quantitative approach to performance measurement; and our commitment to rigorous, independent, experimental evaluation of our impact, with one Randomized Controlled Trial completed and multiple additional RCTs in progress.

We are looking for exceptional talent to help build a startup into a world-class organization. 

Our culture is professional, analytical, non-hierarchical, fast-paced, and blunt, and we’re looking for people that match that description. 

We are open to candidates from any industry; we typically recruit from top private-sector firms.
