At Dexis, you will experience a corporate culture of inclusiveness, fairness, and trust. You will be given the means and mentorship needed to succeed, and your creativity will be rewarded.

The At-Large M&E Specialist shall work with INL/WHP program officers, M&E Coordinator, Posts, implementers, and in-country M&E Specialists to augment the work of both in-country and DC-based M&E Specialists.
