Start Date: November – December 2022
Who we are
D-tree International is a global digital health organization dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to high-quality primary healthcare in underserved areas. We do this by working with governments to design, build and deploy digital tools for frontline health workers that improve their ability to deliver high-quality, evidence-based care. D-tree engages with governments to develop a shared vision for the potential of digital health, demonstrates the effectiveness of digital systems to improve health outcomes, and accompanies governments to scale these digital systems nationally and institutionalize them within their broader health systems.
D-tree has grown considerably in the past 3 years with funding from bilateral donors such as USAID, multilateral organizations such as UNICEF, and private foundations such as Gates Foundation, Foundation Botnar, and Conrad Hilton Foundation. We have an excellent track record and strong reputation as one of the original pioneers in digital health, with active programs in Zanzibar, Tanzania, Malawi, and Zambia. Our work involves extensive collaboration with governments, donors, local and international health implementers to improve the lives of the people we serve. Evaluations of D-tree’s programs have demonstrated significant health system impacts from D-tree’s digital programs–including reductions in maternal mortality, increase in facility delivery rates and follow up, and improved health worker performance.
Who you are
We are seeking a full time Contracts, Grants and Compliance Manager, ideally based in the Boston area, to support grants management, standardization of administration and compliance across a diverse set of funders. This is a dynamic and challenging role requiring an individual with exceptional attention to detail, initiative and passion for international development.
You are a professional, motivated, and a self-directed team player. You are someone who is just as comfortable traveling to D-tree country offices in East Africa to conduct trainings as you are interfacing with a variety of donor representatives and representing D-tree confidently. You function well in situations with ambiguity and are able to make decisions with partial information and push to deliver high quality work within deadlines.
What you will do
You are an integral member of the D-tree global operations team, supporting D-tree’s teams globally in the implementation of our contracts and grants from a variety of funders. You oversee the compliance of multiple post-award grants and contracts and support our field teams to follow D-tree policies and procedures and develop tracking systems to maintain a diverse portfolio of funders and their terms and conditions. You will take a leading role on developing and expanding the standardization of D-tree processes and capacity building tools to support our growth.

Grant / Contract Administration (post-award): 50%
Review, negotiate, and execute contracts and grant agreements and modifications to ensure D-tree can adhere to donor regulations as well as confirm D-tree programmatic and financial interests are considered and represented in such agreements
Organizational Compliance & Administration: 40%
Act as subject matter expert on D-tree’s procurement policy and provide guidance, training, spot check reviews and other support to D-tree’s procurement processes
Pre- Award / Proposal Support: 10%
Review proposal guidelines to ensure D-tree’s ability to comply with financial and other compliance requirements. Flag potential areas of risk as necessary to inform decision making (go / no go)
Bachelor’s degree required; Master’s degree preferred (business management, public administration or related field)
$65,900 to $85,000 USD annual salary inclusive of all cash compensation
Note: Starting salaries typically fall in the lower half of the salary range; however, they are ultimately determined by the scope of the position, the candidate’s relevant experience, and internal equity.
