At mPharma, we start and end our day thinking about how we can enable patients to afford their medications. We’re a small but growing team of 300+ members, headquartered in Accra, Ghana, backed by mission-driven investors. We’ve joined hands with third-party payers, drug manufacturers and healthcare providers to develop products and services that directly reduce the costs of prescription drugs for patients. In only a few years, we’ve managed to provide low-cost, high-quality medicines to hundreds of thousands of patients across seven African countries (Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Rwanda & Malawi).
mPharma is seeking a product manager to drive mPharma’s efficiency and impact with insights from the data we collect. As Analytics PM, you will collaborate with retail, wholesale, diagnostics, supply chain, and finance teams to identify opportunities to use data insights to address the challenges they face.
