JD: Program Head, Leap 300 Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO)

An extremely rare large-scale human-impact + cutting-edge technology exposure opportunity for a passionate mid-level management consulting executive with an operations bent. Leap 300 has built and validated a unique high-tech, low-touch model to alleviate extreme poverty (<$2/Day) with outstanding results in multiple pilots. Now, the Program Head will lead the expansion of the program to lift 1 Million beneficiaries out of extreme poverty in the next 3 years, first in India, then in a measured way, globally.

The Role:

Ideal candidate has 5-7 years of experience, with a combination of Management Consulting and Operations, and will be responsible for:

- On-Ground Operations with Product Mindset: Leap 300 is built on an impact thesis of lump-sum cash transfers (upto Rs 60,000) for the extreme poor, supported with technology-enabled skilling to deploy the cash for successful small-scale microentrepreneurship. Lean ground operations are key for scalability. As the program head, you'll lead on-ground human operations while constantly striving to product-ize and build tech solutions for operations, to deliver a highly scalable yet personalised development program for the ultra-poor.

- Establishing & Scaling Demand-Side Programs: Leap 300 will drive awareness for the intervention and scale donor interest with well-tested innovative donor programs, deeply involving families and communities. As program head, you'll design, launch and scale these new-to-the-world programs.

- Grants Back-End: Leap 300 will apply for FCRA License within 18 months, until then, grants will be received through Indian entities. The program manager will identify and apply for the same, building a rich network of support for a cutting-edge intervention with measurable results.

Skills

- Extreme Ownership with 1st principles thinking: As Program head, you'll drive a mix of beneficiary operations, brand-building, and donor programs. This requires extreme ownership of all aspects of the NGO, and solving multi-faceted functional problems, from leading operations to guiding an ace product/tech team to creating innovative brand-development programs from scratch and driving rigorous P&L management. You'll be excellent in the role if you love solving problems across a range of disciplines using first principles.

- Hands-On Detail Orientation: As the leader of operations, you will both create and execute the playbook that has delivered excellent results in pilot at scale. You'll excel if you're a detail-obsessed craftsman at the beginning and subsequently hire, lead and inspire a team to scale the intervention with the same attention to detail across multiple geographies.

- Deep Love and Empathy for Beneficiaries: Our target beneficiary is the most vulnerable economic segment with no education, assets or skills. The program manager should care deeply about impacting millions very personally by getting them access to the intervention and transforming their lives.

Location: The company is headquartered in North Goa, and will require relocation to the wonderful state of Goa to be closely connected to the product and program management team.

Company Values: Frugality, Focus, Obsession, Long-Term-ism

Backed by a highly reputed board, this is a great opportunity to do highly meaningful work, leading to large scale multi-generational impact.
