Are you looking to make a difference?
Wokai, China s first person-to-person microfinance platform, is seeking a
passionate, creative, self-starter to lead its frontend and backend web
development and support Wokai's rapid growth. Working from Wokai's offices
in Beijing, you will lead development for all of Wokai s website, ecommerce,
and social media applications. This is a unique opportunity to work with a
team of passionate, energetic leaders to enable tens of thousands of people
in rural China to lift themselves from poverty.
Wokai (I start in Mandarin) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2007
dedicated to helping individuals in rural China lift themselves out of
poverty through microloans. Wokai has introduced the first ever
person-to-person online model that connects individual contributors around
the world directly with individual farmers and microentrepreneurs in rural
China in need of small loans. Since launching its website in November 2008,
Wokai has raised over US$130,000 in contributed loan capital, grown to over
2,000 users, and empowered over 250 borrowers in China to start small
businesses. Wokai has also been featured Time, MSNBC , CNBC, Newsweek, San
Francisco Chronicle, CCTV, and Phoenix TV). Most recently, Wokai was
featured on Bloomberg and Money163.com (one of China's major online finance
sites) boosting page views from 200 to 10,000 in one day.
