About the Company

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.

Companies today are looking for a better way to handle the volumes of data-intensive work that has become  critical to their daily operations. This data can take the form of  Scanned Images, Audio/Video, Paper, Photos or Web Content.  Technology alone can only do so much and people alone can't typically scale.

Providing our clients from around the world with accurate and timely results requires software engineers, data scientists, business optimization experts and a host of other brilliant people to come together at our offices in Durham, Nairobi, Kathmandu and Hong Kong. If you are passionate about changing the world with technology as much as we are, come join us in our effort to transform the way work gets done.
