Vacancy for a DRIVER in the Digital Solutions for Sustainable Development Program (DSSD)


The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Decentralization and Good Governance, Economic Development and Employment Promotion, Energy and ICT (Information and Communications Technology).


The project “Digital Solutions for Sustainable Development”(DSSD) will advise Rwandan institutions on the implementation of the Smart Rwanda Master Plan (2016-2020) and its priority projects. The project aims at promoting the development of digital solutions in collaboration with sector ministries, local and international private companies, research institutions and civil society. The development of those pioneering solutions will be supported and managed by a dynamic team of experts based in the newly created Digital Transformation Center (DigiCenter) – a project unit of DSSD.


The DigiCenter will be a space dedicated at delivering impact-driven digital solutions, developing the capacities of the local innovation ecosystem, and replicating / scaling-up digital solutions at regional and continental level. The support offered by the DigiCenter could for instance cover technical advice for the improvement of public-facing services like websites or applications, the introduction of agile and user-centered development process, or the building and provision of a network of partners. In parallel, the institutional and capacity development of MINICT (Ministry of Information Communication Technology and Innovation), RISA (Rwanda Information Society Authority) and other partners will be supported through intensive capacity building, organizational development, business process optimization, and expert advice.
