    I have been working at Dimagi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sticks to the mission and is attempting to make great technology available to those who can benefit from it the most. Hearts are really in the right place and are thoughtful about the work that they do, it's about doing things the right way and setting a high bar for the work that is done in low resource settings. Flexible work environment, generally everyone gets along and are good friends. Lots of international travel and ability to work on a lot of different projects. I've worked in more areas of public health and with a list of impressive international organizations that most people have done in a decade. Technically strong for international development, team is mostly engineers and really talented ones at that.

    Cons

    Not a perfect company, but good luck finding one in the development sector. Pay is not competitive and growth within the company is getting more and more difficult. Also, not the best at firing low performers, but typically doesn't hire them to begin with. Partners can be somewhat difficult compared to dealing with the true for-profit sector and are very resource strapped.

    Advice to Management

    Directed growth and retain good staff.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dimagi.

    Interview

    I had several interviews with various members of the Cambridge and Dakar-based teams, including over the phone, skype and in-person. The interviews were generally relaxed and included different hypotheticals that seemed designed to see how you would approach/work through a given challenge. All of the Dimagi employees seemed very accessible and interested in cultural "fit" for the position. One of the interviews was conducted in French.
