I am excited to use my skills acquired during my economics PhD to do rigorous research that has real world impact. Projects vary in nature and span many sectors which makes things a lot of fun, and I get to travel to different countries. The work is very collaborative. Colleagues at all levels are not only motivated and talented but also very nice and cool people that I enjoy hanging out with.

I really love the diversity that the IDinsight office brings. Working with different people from all over the world gives a broader perspective and has opened my mind. IDinsight does not only expect you to deliver work; we also prioritize your professional development (PD) by providing the opportunities and resources needed to help us achieve our PD goals.

The work at IDinsight cuts across all levels of international development. I am humbled by the opportunity to talk to farmers and caregivers of young children in some of the most remote parts of Kenya, and translate their wishes, and aspirations for policy makers at a national and international level, giving a voice to the intended recipients of social programs. I enjoy working with a highly motivated team that pushes all actors in the social sector to critically think about what social impact really means and find innovative ways to maximize this impact. At the same time, I am inspired that the team remains grounded in the fact that what we do starts and ends with helping the poor, and it's encouraging that this is not lost in the day-to-day workings of the organization and everyone lives by this mission.

IDinsight gives you the opportunity to learn the skills of "Big Consulting," data analytics, and international development, while working on fascinating and impactful projects in exciting parts of world with an incredible team. The organization melds the quality and professionalism of a Fortune 500 company with the scrappiness and entrepreneurialism of a startup. And yet, it does so much more. The team is also dedicated to creating social impact. It lives and breathes for the opportunity to improve the lives of people around the world. All of these features - learning potential, organizational quality, meaningful projects, and deep caring - are what make IDinsight truly IDinsight. And these are what I love about the organization.

Lilian Lehmann, Southeast Asia Regional Director
Over my time at IDinsight, I have been lucky enough to be part of our exciting growth and expansion into new regions, first as an early member of our Nairobi office in 2015, and then launching our Manila office. While there is much that is rewarding in my day to day (the people on the teams I get to work with and the complex challenges we get to solve), being able to contribute to IDinsight's growth, geographically and strategically, has probably been among the most thrilling elements to date.
Ben Brockman, Senior Manager, Global Policy & Innovation
As one of the first Associates to join IDinsight back in 2012, it has been a privilege to watch IDinsight grow from a scrappy start-up to global organization partnering with some of the most innovative governments and development organizations. I chose to rejoin IDinsight after grad school because I wanted to continue to be a part of a team that does two things well: focuses on having a direct impact through the discrete projects we do with our clients and also thinks about and works towards systems level change. Its rare to be able to work on both of these things and being able to do it with a superstar team of coworkers has made the experience that much better. It's good to be back!
