About Charity Science Health:
Charity Science Health was launched with the ambition of being the first direct poverty charity started by EAs to become GiveWell-recommended. A year into the project we have received two GiveWell incubation grants and have helped over 100,000 new parents and their infants.
This position primarily involves managing and improving our existing tech system that processes texts and sends text reminders every day. It is open source and available at https://github.com/charityscience/csh-sms. Our stack is built on Django in Python and uses a Postgres database. Our goal is to make sure text messages get sent out reliably and consistently -- any missed text reminder could be a missed vaccination and a missed chance to save a life! More complexity such as multi-language support and updateable date-based reminders are in the process of being added or in the plans to be added over the next year. This software engineer would be the primary person building this system, but would have outside support from our engineering-savvy project director and board members.
