Energy for Health Program
Designation: Product Manager

About SELCO Foundation:

Established in 2010, SELCO Foundation’s mission is to develop holistic solutions that use sustainable energy as a catalyst to address poverty alleviation alongside ensuring environmental sustainability. SELCO's interventions have lead to the sustainable delivery of essential services such as healthcare, and enable improvements in livelihoods productivity; impacting more than 7 million people till date. The foundation does this by developing enabling conditions, i.e an ecosystem for sustainable energy solutions which is locally developed, adopted, scaled and institutionalized through stakeholders including government agencies, financiers, local NGOs and enterprises.

Core to the organization are its values on inclusion, compassion, agency, resiliency and sustainability. Through its work, SELCO Foundation aims to create a benchmark for innovation systems in a manner that people and planet are at the centre.

Background: Energy for Health Program

Healthcare today, without considering the potential services to the un-catered populations in the world, is the 5th most polluting industry. The proposed program can help improve the quality of health services in a decentralized manner, while also making it a less carbon intensive sector. This program can prove to be the low hanging fruit for achieving SDG13 and SDG3 via SDG7. We believe that provision of 100% renewable energy and green building infrastructure for healthcare facilities, will democratize the much needed health services in the remote regions within India and account for future pandemic preparedness.

The goal of this program is to strengthen delivery of healthcare for over 170 million people by reliably and sustainably powering 25,000 public health facilities in remote, rural, climate and socio-economically vulnerable regions across 12 states in India by 2026. 

Role Description: 

SELCO Foundation is looking for a highly motivated individual who is passionate about working in the overall sustainable energy sector for last mile communities. The broader goal is to use decentralized renewable energy to re-imagine the public health system in a manner that it facilitates good health, improved well being, and improves access to health care without putting pressure on the planet.

An important component of this is also building capacity and agency in the health sector to benchmark and deploy holistic health systems. Therefore, the candidate will be involved in conceptualising and creating a data based system which:

  • Makes the program visible through data in a manner that aids ownership and accountability from different stakeholders
  • Allows a complete picture of the program for improving decision making and monitoring, focusing on establishing sustainable health infrastructure as well as their operations and maintenance practices

The Product Manager is expected to take complete ownership of the tech product being developed, working with cross-functional teams of designers, developers, operations, policy advocates, and other external and internal stakeholders.

You will anchor user research, speak with potential stakeholders interested in the program, analyse data, own the project roadmap, build wireframes, write product requirements, work on feature prioritization, build launch plans, look at product adoption and use, iterate, measure progress and drive all stakeholders to ensure success.
