Over the years, our tech products have become integral to scaling our impact, helping us reach out to over 5 lakh beneficiaries across 18 states. An opportunity for you to put your tech skills to use for making an impact and support our push to impacting 1 million+ beneficiaries in the coming years! About Indus Action Indus Action's mission is to enable the disadvantaged gain access to legislated rights sustainably, in India. Our first action is to create a breakthrough in inclusive education. We achieve this in collaboration with progressive state governments and a network of partner and community entrepreneurs. We are led by a world-class team and an international Board. India's Right to Education Section 12(1)(c) law mandates unaided, private schools reserve 25% of their entry grade seats to children belonging to socially or economically disadvantaged families. Essentially, due to this law, more than 11 million families now have a choice of selecting high-quality private schools across India in the next five years. India's Right to Education law grants free access to high-quality private schools to economically and socially disadvantaged children. However, national seat fill rate is only ~20 percent. Indus Action has till 2019, enabled 227,000 students in less than 5 years, with 84% fill rate in our areas of operation. By 2020, we aim to enrol 1million children and are well on course to achieve the goal. By saving ~1L in tuition fees, families save 12% of their annual income. This yielded Rs 320 crore savings per every year thus far. We are able to deliver this impact at a marginal cost (Rs 350 per child). Our cost-effective model ensures impact at 0.001% of the annual budget the government spends in implementing this policy. We are currently operational in 18 states. Indus Action provides exciting opportunities for talented and motivated professionals to work at the intersection of policy, advocacy and technology. The technology team at Indus Action works on multiple products and platforms. The technology products are varied and serve critical problems both for the beneficiaries and the administration alike. The products are instrumental in the implementation of the Legislated Right, helping the government achieve scale of operation with ease. We are looking for talented and motivated professionals in our Technical team who will have the opportunity to solve some of the critical problems that are impediments to implementation of legislated rights in India today. Position Summary Over the years, our tech products have become integral to scaling our impact, helping us reach out to over 5 lakh beneficiaries across 18 states. We also directly work with governments to implement policies in which the core objective is to provide technical support for building the end-to-end MIS systems for the states we are operational in. We are looking for an individual who will help visualize, develop and implement solutions that will take the implementation of legislated rights to the next level.
