Samasource, Inc. is an award-winning social enterprise with a huge vision—to connect the one billion people living in poverty around the world to work using technology. We combine the fast-paced, results-driven culture of a tech startup with the social mission and idealism of a nonprofit. We like to move quickly and get things done—if you join us, you will be part of a dynamic team that is passionate about making an impact.
The organization was founded in 2008 and is supported by major corporate and philanthropic funders. Headquartered in San Francisco’s Mission District, we have 30+ employees and support work for thousands of people worldwide.
Samasource, Inc. serves as the parent organization to two separate but related entities, Samasource and Samaschool. Samasource is a pioneer in the field of impact sourcing, the practice of hiring people from the bottom of the pyramid to complete digital work, and operates internationally. Samaschool is a US-based and online program that trains low-income individuals to connect to work by leveraging opportunities in the gig economy.
Samasource, Inc. is looking for an Associate to join our Impact team to support our Samaschool program.
The Impact team is responsible for owning and executing on all of our monitoring and evaluation (M&E) processes for both Samasource and Samaschool. We look to understand how the training and jobs we provide impact our beneficiaries' skills, income, and other quality of life indicators.
Working with the Samaschool team provides a unique and exciting opportunity to develop and implement M&E systems at the forefront of the changing American workforce, namely the shift to contingent labor and project-based work.
