Job Description:

Job Description


Afghanistan has been plagued by conflict, corruption, poverty, and natural disasters, compounded by the primary and secondary consequences of COVID-19. As a result, more than half the Afghan population is dependent on humanitarian assistance. It is predicted that by June 2022, approximately 97% of the population will fall below the poverty line and by March 2022, 55% of the population will fall under IPC classification Phase 3 or 4. The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance is projected to increase to up to 24.4 million people in 2022. Insecurity over the last two decades resulted in many data collection activities being limited or postponed, including a national census. Data collection has been hampered by conflict, geography, weather, and road networks and conditions. Remote data collection using mobile phones has severe limitations. Regardless, humanitarians have continued to collect a lot of data making the response in Afghanistan very data rich.

Who we are?

Afghanistan has one of the slowest internet speeds in the world. Broadband connection is not available in everywhere and mobile data as a most used way to connect to the world is very expensive. Job search portals are very heavy and takes lots of time to load; therefore making it very hard and time-consuming for job seekers to find their dream job. To address this problem we launched Afghanistan's first speed optimized job search portal, with at least 15 times faster load time and maximum 200 kbs page size.
