Job Spotlight: Customer Service and Fulfillment Operations, Zipline (Rwanda)

· @hkonyango ·

More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, such as blood and vaccines, due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure. Zipline improves access to these supplies by flying over impassable mountains and washed-out roads, delivering directly to clinics. It’s a magically simple system that just works.
As a member of Zipline’s Fulfillment Operations team in Rwanda, you will work with Zipline’s flight operations team to ensure safe handling, tracking, and delivery of medical products from Zipline’s distribution center to hospitals around Rwanda. You will interact directly with hospitals to process incoming orders from hospitals and answer routine questions about delivery status and receipt. You will manage product handling and delivery package preparation, ensuring quality and efficiency of deliveries. In this role, you will also interact regularly with our upstream and downstream customers as well as with Zipline’s Flight Operations team to ensure smooth end-to-end coordination from the time of upstream deliveries to the Zipline distribution center to the time of delivery to hospitals.
