Nyaya Health is seeking a paid, full-time Web Developer as the 3rd member of its growing U.S.-based team. Applications are being accepted on an immediate rolling basis for candidates that are open to start work in Nyaya Health’s NYC office.
The Web Developer will be provided a rare opportunity to use their skills in a critical role in an early-stage, growing organization dedicated to building health care solutions for the world’s poorest people.
Are you the right fit? The ideal orientation.
We are looking for a talented developer and committed self-learner hungry to use their skills for good that will build the back-end infrastructure of the most innovative, exciting, and contagious global health brand of the 21st century.
Most importantly, your orientation toward the work should match well with our operating values, or what we call our “cultural DNA”. See those here.
In short, you’re entrepreneurial, have phenomenal coding skills for the platform we currently use the most (WordPress), committed to learning new coding languages over time, and are excited by the challenge of being asked to take on a large, diverse set of responsibilities in the fast-moving environment of a young, growing organization.
You can’t be in the market for a dry 9-5 ‘job’, but instead, you’re looking for an opportunity to use your time to transform and grow with a young organization to change hundreds of thousands of lives.
- Web development experience: At minimum, we need you to be truly talented in the WordPress platform and the skills that are important to it (HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL). 1-2 years of experience delivering significant web projects is strongly preferred.
- Commitment to translating design: The Web Developer will be 1 of 3 full-time employees based in the NYC office, alongside an Executive Director and Creative Director. Thus, a close partnership will be required to work with the Creative Director to translate their designs. The Creative Director has background in web design, but only basic abilities in CSS and HTML.
- Willingness to travel to Nepal: You will be in the U.S. at least 80% of the time. But your ability to be successful depends on your ability to understand our programs, data, and reporting systems in an extremely different environment in rural Nepal. Your systems design and code are the central connection between that corner of Nepal, our team, and a broad global audience.
- A commitment to innovative development: We intend for our impact evaluation and fundraising systems to be regarded as a paragon within global health. We want you to thrive in the challenge of designing creative and inventive ways to connect people with our work while upholding the highest standards of transparency. If you have the commitment to learn, we can connect you to best-in-class tech mentors in the NYC social impact space.
- Experience in or willingness to train in Salesforce CRM: We have a newly created Salesforce CRM that needs support. You will need to be willing to provide support in integrating and automating functions across our web presence with the database. Our experience suggests that developers can self-train in the system quickly even if they haven’t had much specific Salesforce CRM experience.
The Web Developer will be a member of a 3-person team alongside the Executive Director and Creative Director and will be challenged over time to go beyond being a developer to also taking a lead role in designing and building creative technology systems.
- Execute the web strategy of the organization efficiently.
- Expand and maintain Nyaya Health’s new WordPress-based website and blog.
- Integrate back-office systems (accounting, Salesforce CRM, development dashboards) to our donor-facing web applications for fundraising, reporting, and impact evaluation.
- Oversee migration from our current Wiki information platform (wiki.nyayahealth.org) to a more design-friendly, visual and intuitive micro-site housed within www.nyayahealth.org.
- Oversee the maintenance and use of the Salesforce CRM platform.
- Ensure the availability and security of all IT systems.
- Build creative in-kind partnerships where organizational gaps exist – in areas like analytics and SEO.
- Be our technology evangelist, internally and externally, by demonstrating an incredible passion for how technology can connect our supporters and patients in meaningful ways and make our work more efficient.
Nyaya Health’s new office located at 17 W. 17th Street in NYC.
- Health insurance
- At least 1 trip to Nepal per year
- Connections to NYC’s top social impact tech talent through organizational partnerships
- Support for professional development
Please send the materials below to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Web Developer Application – Your Name” in the subject line of the email.

- Tell us (or show us) your story, and why you’re committed to doing whatever it takes to bring health care to the rural poor in Nepal. Just make it fit on one page and break free from the confines of the traditional cover letter.
What happens after submission?
Your submission will be responded to within 4 days, and if the application is advanced, we will ask for two references and an in-person meeting (or substitute a video chat if we have to).
If selected for the position, we will offer a paid 1-month trial period to allow us to work together so you can decide if you want to sign a longer-term contract and commit yourself to our mission.

Nyaya Health (NH) is seeking a paid, full-time Hospital Director (HD) to serve as a long-term leader for Bayalpata Hospital, which currently serves as the hub of Nyaya Health’s clinical and administrative operations in Far-Western Nepal. Applications are being accepted on an immediate, rolling basis for Nepali and international candidates. Preference will be given to applicants willing to commit at least two years to the position.
More about Bayalpata Hospital:
Bayalpata Hospital, the hub of Nyaya Health’s expanding work in rural Nepal, is a renovated 30 year-old government facility that is managed and operated by Nyaya Health through a public-private partnership with Nepal’s Ministry of Health and Population. The hospital provides free care to over 32,000 patients per year in one of the poorest regions of the country and is home to 57 Nepali and 4 international team members. The hospital is a full-service primary care hospital, providing outpatient, inpatient, and emergency medical services. The core clinical programs are supported by x-ray, ultrasound, and laboratory services coupled with specific government partner programs in HIV, TB, malnutrition, and safe motherhood. Obstetric care and minor surgical services will soon be complemented by a fully functional operating theater. An image of Bayalpata Hospital is available here.
Are you the right fit? The ideal orientation:
We are looking for a leader readied for the challenge of building a clinical and operational hub of excellence in one of South Asia’s poorest communities. The HD is expected to couple visionary leadership and strategy with disciplined management and detailed implementation in a challenging environment in Far-Western Nepal.
Most importantly, your orientation toward the work should match well with our operating values, or what we call our “cultural DNA.” See those here.
In short, you are committed to working long-term (a minimum of two years in Nepal), have experience working in rural, resource-poor environments, and seek a diverse set of challenging management responsibilities in the fast-moving environment of a young, growing organization.
At least 3 years of management experience, a bachelor’s degree minimum with graduate and clinical training both strongly preferred, and the qualities below:
1. Long-term commitment to working in Nepal.
- We prefer to receive applications only from those able to live at least two years in Far- Western Nepal and intend to be a long-term team member at Nyaya Health. The role would require roughly 85% of time spent at Bayalpata Hospital, with occasional work requirements in Kathmandu.
- *Note: Nepali language ability is considered an extraordinary asset but not required to apply.
2. Ability to solve problems and deliver results on deadline.
- Complex problems are a daily reality in Far-Western Nepal. The HD is often chief decision-maker and required to problem solve through ingenuity, an understanding of people’s strengths and motivations, and streamlining processes. The commitment to delivering on deadlines, in spite of the consistent unexpected problems, is key.
3. Experience as a patient relationship builder.
- The HD will be perceived as one of the organization’s most identifiable leaders within the country of Nepal, second only to the Country Director. Thus, a substantial component of the position is to build relationships across a broad spectrum – from parents of patients to staff to high-level partners in the government and global funding partners.
4. Ability to oversee work in multiple domains.
- The HD is both a leader and manager – responsible for setting direction and delivering results through staff in areas of programmatic growth, procurement, human resources, clinical care, and data. In short, the HD needs to be a chameleon – adaptable to being at home in many different work environments.
5. An efficient and inspiring approach to communications.
- The HD is often a central connector or final filter between our work in Nepal and a broad global audience. Hence, an ability to authentically and transparently capture the essence of our work in bringing health care to some of the poorest citizens of the world internally and externally is vital in order to motivate staff and supporters alike.
The HD will be a member of an expanding director-level team responsible for leading programs in Nepal and will be charged with overseeing the entirety of programs at Bayalpata Hospital.
1. Oversee all strategy and programs at Bayalpata Hospital:
- Direct strategy and management of Bayalpata Hospital, including budgeting, staffing, policy, procurement, clinical programs development, and partnerships.
- Collaborate with other program leads including the Director of Community Health, the Kathmandu Office Manager, and the leader responsible for leading expansion of programs into the health post level of care.
- Consult with international team members on clinical program development and effectiveness, which may possibly include a primarily U.S.-based Chief Medical Officer.
2. Expand key clinical partnerships within Nepal:
- Expand NH’s partnership with the Ministry of Health and Population at the District and National level in areas of funding, shared programmatic development, and training.
- Expand NH’s partnerships at partner health facilities, referral partners, and hospital human resource pipeline partners.
3. Management of hospital staff:
- The HD reports to the Country Director and is responsible for management of team members at Bayalpata Hospital across clinical and non-clinical domains.
4. Financial oversight:
- The HD is ultimately accountable for the fiscal responsibility of Bayalpata Hospital, which will be operating on a budget of over $500,000 during the 2012- 2013 fiscal year.
5. Human Resources:
- Work with the Country Director, Director of Operations, and Administrative Director to develop and amend human resource policies.
- Oversee hiring process for all hospital-based staff.
- Oversee clinical volunteer recruitment and selection strategy.
At least 85% of time will be spent living and working at Bayalpata Hospital located in Achham District of Far- Western Nepal. Roughly 10% will be spent in Kathmandu on operations and building partnerships.
Salary commensurate with experience and adjusted for pay scale in Nepal. Up to 1 international flight per year to and from Nepal, if required. All in-country, work-related food, travel, and housing.
Living stipend support for potential work time spent outside of Nepal. Health care provided at the hospital and a stipend to purchase a supplementary international/emergency health care package.
1. Show, don’t tell. Send us an example or portfolio of your work (which includes your resume, expected starting salary, and earliest possible start date). We are being purposefully vague in our explanation here. Please send us whatever format (or combination of formats) best exemplifies your work that you feel has prepared you for this position that can be reviewed in less than 15 minutes.
2. Tell us (or show us) your story, and why you’re committed to doing whatever it takes to bring health care to the rural poor in Nepal. Just make it fit on one page, and break free from the confines of the traditional cover letter.
Please send the materials below to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Hospital Director Application – Your Name” in the subject line of the email.
What happens after submission?
Your submission will be responded to within 7 days, and if the application is advanced, we will ask for two references and an in-person meeting (or substitute video chat if we have to) before continuing the process.
If selected for the position, we will work to bring you to Nyaya Health’s U.S. office in NYC (if logistically possible) to get oriented with the U.S.-based team prior to transition to full-time work in Nepal.
We are a very lean organization so we must be strategic in our volunteer placements for those interested in supporting us within Nepal and the U.S.
For that reason, we only accept volunteers for positions posted formally on this page. But if you feel that you have an offer we cannot turn away, email us at email@example.com. Please understand, however, that we may not be able to respond to all inquiries.
