Description and Impact
Youth unemployment rates are hitting record highs around the world. Educational and training opportunities are scarce, and access to stable jobs can be even more limited. Though these challenges feel entrenched, the digital economy provides new pathways for disenfranchised youth to access high-quality education and stable employment. Our model transforms the way previously marginalized populations can access jobs in the digital economy, and currently provides ongoing training and rich employment to over 600 youth in India.
In order to maximize our social and business impacts, it’s imperative that we have an intuitive and truly integrated work platform for our staff and client users. As we continue developing our in-house platform - which incorporates everything from employee skilling, to project management, to client delivery - we are looking for an enthusiastic UX expert who can contribute innovations and finesse.
Our in-house platform needs to be robust enough to serve enterprise needs, but intuitive and simple enough to be understood by newly computer-literate teams. It's a fascinating challenge!

A unique experience abroad: Kolkata is a city unlike any other. Vestiges from its time as the capital of the British India intermingle with new construction, while India's oldest metro system snakes underground. Glimpses of village life are still visible in various neighborhoods in Kolkata, where the rules of time don't seem to apply.
This project accepts applications for virtual experteers.
