Health can't wait.

About Muso

Muso believes no one should die waiting for health care. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster, within hours of the moment they become sick. To do this, we partner with communities facing extreme poverty. Muso has spent more than a decade creating and improving our Rapid Care model, preparing it to serve the global effort for universal health care. We have documented rapid health improvements across the populations we serve: a 2018 study found that communities we reach in Mali, which previously saw some of the world’s highest child mortality rates, sustained child mortality rates lower than any country in sub-Saharan Africa for five years, and ultimately reached a rate on par with that of the United States. Patient access to care increased tenfold. Muso now serves the governments of Mali and Côte d’Ivoire in their efforts to translate the results of this research into national policy and practice.


We provide proactive health care to 400,000 patients in Mali and Côte d’Ivoire and are growing to serve 650,000 patients across these two countries in the coming years. Muso embeds rigorous academic research and strategic advocacy to identify and share strategies that can accelerate global efforts for child survival, maternal health, and universal health care. Given the transformations in health care access and survival Muso has documented, over the next five years our direct service, research, and advocacy will work to advance a new model of care for community health systems.

About the Position

More than five million children die every year and more than half the world’s population lives without access to essential health care. To take on these enormous injustices, Muso is growing rapidly. We are working to raise $70M over the next three years to care for up to one million patients across two to three countries and improve care for tens of millions of people through changes in global policy and practice.

We seek a Development Operations Coordinator to build, manage, and optimize systems to support our growing development and communications team and partnerships.

Finally, this role stewards the development and communication team’s intra- and inter-departmental collaboration, with the oversight of the department leader, Muso’s Chief Partnerships Officer. The Development Operations Coordinator provides an important anchor to our development and communications team as it and our partnerships continue to grow in the coming years, embedding exceptional administration, reliable service, and strategic systems capacity as a foundation for our partnerships.
