MDI is an Open Data portal for the developing world mobile industry. We believe that open access to high quality data will improve business decision making, increase total investment from both the commercial mobile industry and the development sector and accelerate economic, environmental and social impact from mobile solutions. The On Purpose Associate will work with the analyst team to address key research areas that supports this mission and then work to disseminate widely through a variety of channels (MDI website, social media, webinars, conferences and other events involving M4D stakeholders).
