Mission Statement

We bring dignified, computer-based work to women, youth, and refugees living in poverty.

Samasource is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that connects people living in poverty to work via the Internet. In parallel, we provide high-quality content moderation, data entry, and other outsourcing services to clients including LinkedIn, Intuit, and the US State Department.

Samasource’s San Francisco-based sales and delivery teams work with clients to move large data projects to a proprietary online work distribution system, the SamaHub. Dedicated, full-time workers around the world access the SamaHub from delivery centers monitored by Samasource staff. Samasource account managers and QA professionals ensure quality, accuracy, and fast turnaround times.

Samasource derives its name from the Sanskrit word sama, which means equal, and was founded in 2008. The company’s board and management team includes experts in the fields of distributed work, economic development, and outsourcing.

Description

Samasource is an award-winning technology social enterprise that provides dignified, internet-based work to people living in poverty. We build technology that helps leverage the brain power of the poor so they can lift themselves out of poverty by providing valuable services to companies around the world. Our technology platform takes large data projects for leading enterprise clients like LinkedIn and Google, and breaks them into smaller tasks called "microwork" which are completed by our workers.

We are a dynamic and growing team with a big vision - to connect the one billion people living in poverty around the world to work using technology. We need the best people to help us achieve it. We like to move fast and get things done. If you join us, you’ll be able to make an immediate impact. Samasource is supported by major corporate and philanthropic funders including eBay, Cisco, Rockefeller and Ford.
