    M-KOPA Solar Data Operations Lead Job in Nairobi Kenya

    M-KOPA is seeking:

    Position Title: Data Operations Lead

    Location: Nairobi, HQ Office

    Position Start: As Soon As Possible

    Reporting to: Head of Data

    Overall Purpose: Primarily responsible for designing, testing and executing one-off and regularly run SQL scripts and query packages to extract data from SQL server databases ready for production of data visualizations.

    Part of this function involves ensuring that data quality, integrity and completeness is maintained or improved and that duplicate entities & errors are identified, removed and/or corrected.

    About M-KOPA Solar: M-KOPA Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of "pay-as-you-go" energy for off-grid customers.

    Since its commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 250,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day.

    The success of M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use installment plan.

    Customers acquire solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage "credits" for US $0.45, or less than the price of traditional kerosene lighting. After one year of payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more power.

    All revenues are collected in real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in Kenya) and embedded GSM sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor real time performance and regulate usage based upon payments.

    This connected design means that M-KOPA is processing vast amounts of data (i.e. over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via the company's proprietary cloud platform, M-KOPAnet.

    As of May 2015 M-KOPA employs over 650 full time staff across East Africa and sells through a network of 1,000 direct sales agents. It has also commenced licensing its technology to partners in other markets.

    M-KOPA has been recognised for its pioneering business mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize, being selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014 Bloomberg New Energy Finance awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award.

    Project: Implementing Training Assessment for Feed Assessment Tool (FEAST)

    The Position

    The Feed Assessment Tool (FEAST) is a simple, participatory approach to introducing feed interventions which ensures that the right conversation takes place between feed experts and livestock keepers to develop better feeding strategies.

    FEAST was initially developed as collaboration between ILRI and CIAT. The tool has evolved over the past 7 years and has been improved extensively through use in real situations across the developing world. The tool has attracted a lot of interest and is being used in over a dozen countries.

    To enhance the effectiveness of FEAST as a method for introducing promising feed interventions, a series of training materials were produced by ILRI and partners through the Humidtropics Programme.

    These materials include 12 training modules (complete with detailed lesson plans), 60 videos, 5 scenario-based interactive exercises and over 200 review and assessment questions.

    These materials were recently made available publically on http://learning.ilri.org/course/detail/1 and on a dedicated ‘offline player’ for regions without good internet connectivity.

    In the current project we will road-test the new training materials in different modes and assess the extent to which the use of FEAST influences feed enhancement approaches and the knowledge of those involved in applying the approaches.

    This will be achieved by tracking use of the tool in a systematic study in Kenya and applying simple before and after assessments of knowledge and practices of users to assess the utility of FEAST and associated learning materials.

    We seek a dynamic MSc graduate fellow with suitable experience to implement the study.

    Responsibilities

  • Refining a simple participant survey to assess knowledge, attitudes and practices of FEAST trainers.
  • Supporting trainers as they complete online and face-to-face FEAST training.
  • Applying a post-hoc assessment of the impact of FEAST on knowledge, attitudes and practices of trainers through a repeat participant survey.
  • Collating data from participant surveys and producing a report on changes in knowledge, attitudes and practices.

    Requirements:

  • Be a current student at MSc (or equivalent degree level) in Education, Communication, Business Administration, Social Sciences, or other related fields.
  • Able to use this assignment to complete an academic requirement of the MSc degree.
  • Having completed course work requirements of an MSc programme in one of the above fields before starting research at ILRI is a plus.
  • Prior knowledge and experience in the disciplinary area, e.g. instructional design / learning systems / education & training / social science – with experience working in developing countries.
  • Familiarity with aspects of livestock production, and/or agricultural systems in developing countries a plus.
  • Consistently approaches work with energy and a positive, constructive attitude.
  • Excellent organizational, interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills. Facilitation, presentation, and/or publication experience a plus.
  • Terms of appointment and stipend:

    The successful candidate will be supervised jointly by an ILRI scientist and the fellow’s university supervisor, and will have the opportunity to interact with scientists at other universities, CGIAR centres, and NGOs, to further develop her/his research programme.

    ILRI will provide the fellow a monthly stipend of US$1000 to support personal expenses. Additionally, ILRI will meet the costs of research related travel, as well as medical insurance.

    Duration: 4 months (March-June 2016).
