Job Description

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone and we never give up.

For every child, a Champion

UNICEF is a leading humanitarian and development agency working globally for children rights. Child rights begin with safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle. UNICEF strive to ensure that all children are born alive, stay safe and keep learning.

The Emergency Cash Transfer Project (ECTP) targets 1.5 million vulnerable beneficiary cases (over 9 million people) across all Yemen districts and governorates with unconditional cash transfers in response to the socio-economic crisis. The ECTP is being rolled out nationally by UNICEF as the executing agency, with funds and technical assistance from the World Bank through the International Development Association. UNICEF has established a Project Management Unit (PMU) with staff members operating in Yemen and Jordan, to oversee the implementation.

Thanks to the project success, established networks and protocols, PMU is now implementing the emergency teacher incentives (ETI) which foresees monthly payments to about 136 thousand teachers and support staff.

The ECTP and the ETI require the implementation of Management Information System (MIS) solutions that support the necessary emergency payment delivery functionality and ensure the security of beneficiary data. The solutions rely heavily on technology and use agile methodology and open source, i.e., cloud IaaS, Linux (CentOS), Postgres, JEE, Kibana and Trello. The poor ICT infrastructure in Yemen and especially the challenges in terms of connectivity, required the use of a distributed solution running mobile-MIS that replicate the deltas to cloud based IaaS main-MIS.
