Opportunity Details


We are a startup company with the goal of eliminating needless blindness in Mexico by providing affordable, high quality eye care to low-income communities. In 2015 we will begin an expansion phase and need help with a strategic plan to open new vision clinics across the country. We are looking for support to develop a strategy on recruitment and selection, as well as on-boarding and training for new staff.

To this end, we are looking for an experienced HR professional to help us design a strategy that allows us to grow and expand our programs in 2015 and beyond. It would be great when you have experience in the HR department of a large company, but we also value experience with smaller companies or a track-record in Startups.

Interested but not the right length of time for you? Like this organization and have an idea how your skills can help them in other ways? Message us at:


After we find the right candidate, first this person will work closely work with a supervisor to setup a feasible work plan. We have identified the following results and anticipated deliverables, which will be further worked out in the work plan:

  • Develop a hiring strategy
  • Develop a recruitment and selection plan for the expansion strategy
  • On-boarding and training protocols for new staff
  • Organization charts for new clinics


  • Business Strategy
  • Human Resources
  • Nonprofit Operations
  • Training


  • entrepreneurship


  • English


  • Spanish

We Provide These Local Benefits


We will provide a shared apartment that could be shared with other fellows, with a private room. Apartment is walking distance from the clinic where you'll work from. The office is in one of the safest neighborhoods in Mexico and  it is popular for its culture, restaurants and nightlife.


salaUno is a fast growing start-up that is generating superior social impact in Mexico.  Along with that exposure you can learn Spanish, develop HR strategies and learn how to help a company grow.


To be determined with the selected candidate


Opportunity to live in and be immersed life in Mexico City. Participate in a ground breaking, disruptive social enterprise in the Mexican healthcare sector. Visit rural communities to help detect cataracts and experience first-hand the most urgent needs of the local rural population.

Questions & Answers About this Opportunity

Hi there! I am really interested in this HR role you have available. I would like to know when you are looking for someone to start and what level of Spanish would they require before arrival? I am available next year however. I would be really keen to learn Spanish beforehand (through classes and online) but wouldn't be arriving in the area until June 2017.
