Triggerise creates impact by applying tech to non-profit. Are you that special person that brings us the best of both worlds? We are looking for an M&E lead/Data Scientist that can help us to not just monitor and evaluate, but also predict and steer on data. 

The Company
We are a fast-growing non-profit social enterprise with offices in the Netherlands, Portugal, India, Kenya, South Africa and Ethiopia.
