What do you do for a living?

Founder & CEO of Assured Labor, Inc. Assured Labor leverages the power of mobile phones to rapidly connect employers with mid-to-low wage workers that may lack consistent access to the internet. Assured Labor’s platform enables employers to shorten their recruitment process from weeks to hours, enhancing productivity and allowing candidates to earn more income. Founded at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the company launched its Latin American brand, EmpleoListo, in 2009 in partnership with the region’s largest wireless carriers.

How do you plan to use business to make the world a better place in the near-future?

We work with over 200,000 lower wage job seekers and over 4,000 companies across Mexico, Brazil and Nicaragua. We plan to continue expanding our operations and are looking for a great front-end engineer to join our team.


Hi, I'm the CEO of Assured Labor, a NYC based for-profit Social enterprise that helps mid-to-low wage workers connect with jobs using text-message and the web. We're focused exclusively on the emerging markets with operations across Latin America.
