Career Opportunities

Muso’s mission is to eliminate preventable deaths rooted in poverty. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster, within hours of the moment they become sick. We’ve spent the past decade iterating on our innovative proactive care model, preparing it for scale. To our knowledge, the communities we serve have achieved the lowest child mortality rates in sub-Saharan Africa.

We are now expanding to provide care for 300,000 people across nine sites in Mali, while sharing our research with Ministries of Health and international decision makers, to accelerate the global effort for child survival and universal health care. The World Bank, the UN MDG Health Alliance, and USAID have all featured Muso’s work as a global best practice.

To take on the enormous injustices of six million child deaths every year and more than 400 million people living without basic health care, Muso is growing exponentially. See below for opportunities to join our team.
