Kimetrica is a social enterprise where every employee has previous work experience in the non-profit sector, so they understand your challenges and opportunities.
MISSION AND VALUES
Kimetrica’s mission is to increase the effectiveness of spending in the social sector. They provide software, research, advisory and training services for evidence-based decision making and learning. They help governments and non-profit organisations to increase the impact and efficiency of their social investments, enhance accountability, manage critical risks, and build donor or taxpayer confidence.
Kimetrica is a social enterprise where they care more about the impact of their work than about corporate profitability. They only hire people who have been volunteers, activists or community leaders.
They are passionate about their work. While they work in different disciplines, they have a common thirst for innovation and for discovery. They strive for efficiency in all that they do, practicing what they preach. Continuous learning is part of their culture. Their personal and corporate commitment is to total quality and total integrity. They work hard, but always make time for family, friends, and fun.
They started out in 2006. Working for governments and international aid agencies, they had seen large budgets being spent on tackling global challenges and responding to disasters. But major decisions were being made based on gut feeling or political expedience rather than hard evidence. They wanted to do things differently.
From an office in Nairobi, Kenya, a small team started experimenting with new software and research methods for ensuring that hard evidence was delivered to decision-makers in a meaningful format. They built prototype tools for measuring impact and performance and for managing disasters. These tools have been continuously refined since then, adapting to new thinking, technological change, and the evolving needs of their clients.
Now tjhey are an international team of over 50. Many are of them are still based in East Africa, but all their systems are web-based, designed to work from anywhere. Currently, their staff are based in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Germany, Haiti, Italy, Kenya, Moldova, Mongolia, Somalia, South Sudan and dotted around the United States. Their unique geographical spread allows us to test technologies and approaches in the toughest conditions and across different cultures.See more
