Get to know the talented people who fuel AI at Samasource.
At Samasource, we believe that connecting people to dignified digital work and paying living wages has the potential to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges -- from reducing poverty to empowering women and mitigating climate change. This is why we chose to adopt a hybrid for-profit/non-profit business model. Samasource was founded as a nonprofit organization in 2008 and became a for-profit enterprise in 2019, allowing us to attract investment capital.
