Head of Customer

Nexleaf Analytics

Nexleaf Analytics is a nonprofit technology company with a unique bottom-up approach for bringing data-driven impact to public health interventions in low- and middle-income countries. Our purpose-driven team of sales, manufacturing, public health and program experts, engineers, product managers, and data scientists designs sensor technologies and data analytics solutions to address global public health challenges. Our flagship product, ColdTrace, is a sensor and data analytics solution that provides monitoring and actionable insights to improve the efficacy, reliability, and sustainability of vaccine distribution in the hardest-to-reach places.

Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for an experienced, customer-obsessed leader to join Nexleaf’s leadership team. You will be responsible for building a sustainable business around the sale and successful adoption of ColdTrace across Africa and Asia. Doing so will require maintaining an integrated focus on our customers and end users, and designing appropriate solutions that meet their needs, from sales to delivery to customer support.

This role requires a leader who brings a commercial lens to addressing challenges in global health. You are willing to roll up your sleeves, build from scratch where needed, and can bring best practices that span the customer journey. You bring an unwavering commitment to meet Ministry of Health needs across Africa and Asia , but do not need to be a global health expert yourself. Our ideal candidate can bring in sales revenue and customers, while also delivering quality service and establishing processes to address questions, concerns, and feedback as they arise. If the idea of owning the customer journey from sales to support across Africa and Asia excites you, we’d love to talk!

This is a full time remote position based in Kenya, and will report directly to the CEO.
