Quality Assurance Team Lead Employment Opportunity – M-KOPA Solar

Organization:
M-KOPA Solar
Duty Station:
Lubowa, Kampala, Uganda
Reports to:
Deputy Operations Manager
About US:
M-KOPA Solar is the
global leader of “pay-as-you-go” energy for off-grid customers. Since its
commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 600,000 homes
in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new
homes each day. The success of M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from
making solar products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use
installment plan. Customers acquire solar systems for a small deposit and then
purchase daily usage “credits” for US $0.45, or less than the price of
traditional kerosene lighting. After one year of payments customers own their
solar systems outright and can upgrade to more power.
