Fraym – Analytics
Full Time
Fraym uses powerful technology to produce comprehensive, high-resolution human geography data—servicing both the public and private sectors. We make it possible to understand populations and communities with local-level precision, across Africa and other emerging regions.

Before Fraym, decision-makers had to rely on anecdotes, “gut feel,” or expensive primary data collection to make important strategic and operational decisions. Fraym offers a better way. We weave together household survey data and satellite imagery with advanced machine learning algorithms. The resulting suite of products offer hyper-local population information for communities and populations. Fraym’s innovative data layer products are setting a new standard for the data that drives decision-making.
