Director of Development – EOS International – San Francisco, CA

EOS International designs, manufactures and installs basic technologies that revolutionize the lives of people who live in extreme poverty. Since our formation in 2008 we have sustainably improved the lives of more than 100,000 impoverished people who live in remote, underserved areas of rural Nicaragua.

Our product line – water purifiers, drip irrigation systems, highly-efficient ovens, biodigesters and solar panels – are state of the art in the context and culture of the people whom we choose to serve. Our current strategic plan, built on a well-earned reputation for consistent growth and lasting impact, challenges us to double our impacts within the next three years.
