About The Role:

The Capacity Accelerator Program (CAP) aims to transform care practices in Child Care Institutions (CCIs), by addressing the severe limitations in funding, access to expertise and contextualized support that they face.

We are on the lookout for individuals who are driven to make an impact in the child-care ecosystem and are excited by the prospect of catalysing organizational development and transformation at Child Care Institutions.

Being an early-stage non-profit organization, individuals who are versatile and looking for more than just a regular 9 to 5 job are more likely to enjoy the role. If you are excited about making a serious commitment to the childcare sector, with an intent to stay and grow in the organization, we would love to chat with you.

The Technology Lead role involves building, testing and rolling out technology solutions to support the implementation of Guardians programmes. The Lead is responsible for ensuring that applications or technology solutions are developed and launched within the required timelines by working with the program head, technology partners and vendors as well as CCI leaders. The role also involves working with all three stakeholders to align on goals, create wireframes and solutions, ensure timely deliverables, test and collate feedback, incorporate improvements, establish quality control and data security practices and maintain & troubleshoot rolled-out tech platforms. The lead will also implement continuous improvements to the existing platforms once they are rolled out.

Through the role, Leads develop a working knowledge of the impact and usage of technology towards social change and capacity building. They also develop expertise in operational planning and stakeholder management. There are opportunities to design systems and processes as part of this.

  • Lead the selection, development, field testing and deployment of core technology solutions for Guardians programmes.

  • Maintain existing technology platforms and troubleshoot issues affecting usage of existing technology platforms. Generate reports and analysis of usage trends.
  • Create and establish data security practices to protect sensitive information. Validate, migrate and update data when needed. Perform periodic security audits.
