Job Description

CloudFactory is More Than Just A Hot Tech Startup - We are working to connect one million people in the developing world to basic computer work while raising them up as leaders to address poverty in their own communities. Our technology platform breaks-up large chunks of data into smaller computer tasks that are routed in-parallel and completed in record time by our distributed, global workforce - who we call Cloud Workers. CloudFactory Kenya started in 2013 to serve SpeakerText (CloudFactory’s Audio Transcription product), as we believe the strength to deliver lies here in Kenya. Currently we have over 60 Cloud Workers in Kenya and we are entering a growth phase in 2014. 

At CloudFactory, we have fun together. We win and lose together. We celebrate together. We mourn together. We grow and are better together. If you believe that your true self reflects in an environment of trust, transparency, and a desire to serve each other, CloudFactory Kenya is calling you.

At CloudFactory, we strive everyday to make everything a bit better than it was yesterday - our company, our products and services, ourselves and our communities. If you are full of curiosity and have the passion to discover new and better ways, CloudFactory Kenya is calling you.
