When you Join Alight, you’ll find…
A team with deep experience in co-designing solutions that create new value around the world. We know we need to always be better, and we believe in the power and abundance of everyday people, everywhere, to change the world with us.
A culture of radical accountability to our customers –as we help build a meaningful life for and with the displaced, we ask them what they want and then deliver on it.
An organization that refuses to settle for anything less than delivering human-worthy services.

If you are looking to be part of a living, breathing, ever-changing organization full of disrupters and doers, then read on!

We are proud to work on borderless teams. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds and specifically encourage members of refugee, immigrant or other displaced communities to join us.

The Accountability and Impact Team
Holding ourselves accountable to meaningful change.
Alight’s winning aspiration is to be the best at co-creating human worthy services and solutions with displaced people that redefine quality in our industry. To know if we are achieving this aspiration, we must listen to our customers, measure and understand our impact, and generate insights that lead to meaningful change. The Accountability and Impact Team is a key part of the Global Programs Team, and it is the role of the Accountability and Impact Team to integrate platforms and approaches across global programmatic areas of the organization to ensure we are holding ourselves accountable to meaningful change.

The Role
Kuja Kuja is Alight’s chosen customer feedback accountability platform and has been utilized in various country program settings including Uganda, Rwanda, Somalia and Poland. Used mainly to solicit customer feedback related to Alight services via ratings and ideas for improvements, where Alight staff then in turn act upon that feedback, Kuja Kuja has more recently worked with Alight to adopt its platform in support of additional needs, including during emergency response and as a tool for assessments.
As the Kuja Kuja Strategy Lead, you’ll collaborate with numerous teams across the organization to ensure the entire organization is working towards customer driven quality and accountability. You’ll be guided by and receive support from the Director of Accountability and Impact. Simply put, you will be responsible for the successful roll-out of Kuja Kuja across the organization. This includes ensuring the roll-out is aligned to a predefined strategy, supporting enterprise teams with accurate budgets, ensuring teams are trained and have required tools, analyzing Kuja Kuja data for accountability and program design, and recruiting staff to implement and support the roll-out.
You’ll know you’re succeeding if Kuja Kuja is being used powerfully inside Alight to measure customer-defined quality, that it is used to improve service and product quality in doable and systemic ways, and that quantitative and qualitive insights are being generated and shared inside and outside Alight to drive better understanding, decision making and response design.
For this to be true, you will work to ensure that:
• Kuja Kuja has a clear strategy and budget for expansion across the whole organization
• Design is iterative with consistent attention to key elements for improvements (data collection, responsiveness and accountability to data, communications)
• Recruitment, training, communications, and reporting support this goal
• A global team is in place to support a global roll-out
• The entire organization is working towards customer driven quality and accountability
