Job Opportunity at ISSARA INSTITUTE


Issara Institute is an independent non-profit organization based in Southeast Asia and the United States tackling human trafficking and forced labour from the lens of business and human rights. The Institute was established in 2014 by a team of anti-trafficking experts coming out of the United Nations who created an alliance of private sector, civil society, and government partners committed to transformational, sustainable, worker-driven approaches
to labour issues, especially those occurring in global supply chains. It is staffed by leading regional and international experts in labour rights, business and human rights, and research and technology.

We believe that, together, we can transform the lives of tens of millions of workers through worker voice, partnership, and innovation – that sustainable systems driving more ethical labour recruitment and working conditions are vital to the future of workers individually and collectively, to equity and fairness across supply chains, and to sustainable poverty alleviation efforts.


Issara Institute is looking for experienced middle/senior frontend developers to grow our Tech and Innovation Team! We have a small but growing team of veteran software engineers, and we’re building tools and applications to help fight human trafficking and support workers in Asian supply chains.

Issara takes an innovative approach to working on labor exploitation within global supply chains – utilizing various streams of data including a range of worker voice channels to empower workers, and to inform global buyer partners regarding human rights due diligence and remediation needs. The ideal candidate is: interested in integrating the technology and non-profit worlds; willing to work closely with our teams in Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia, and the United States; keen to understand the needs of users (our team, workers, jobseekers, businesses); and,
has experience building web applications and at least an intermediate knowledge of JavaScript, React JS.
