The Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) is an open platform for sharing data across crises and organisations. Launched in July 2014, the goal of HDX is to make humanitarian data easy to find and use for analysis. Our growing collection of datasets has been accessed by users in over 200 countries and territories.

HDX is managed by OCHA's Centre for Humanitarian Data, which is located in The Hague. OCHA is part of the United Nations Secretariat and is responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. The HDX team includes OCHA staff and a number of consultants who are based in North America, Europe and Africa.

The HDX platform includes: a dataset repository for sharing data from across the community; visualization functionality to compare data across countries and crises; and standards for the exchange of humanitarian operational data using the Humanitarian Exchange Language (HXL). 

The Centre requires a Data Manager in Nairobi to work with new and existing partners on data activities. The consultant will be part of the global HDX Data Partnerships Team. The Data Manager will work closely with staff from the OCHA Regional Office in Nairobi, and with a geographically distributed Centre and HDX team.
