Our award-winning social loan models are building pathways out of the financial shadows for low-income individuals across the U.S.A hybrid between a tech start-up and a nonprofit, MAF is a great place to work for either nonprofit or for-profit professionals who are interested in tech for social good.

Our Culture

Located in a vibrant and culturally diverse neighborhood in San Francisco, MAF attracts bright and talented people who are driven to create sustainable, scalable social change. As a nonprofit and tech startup, we attract individuals who like to jump in with both feet and who aren’t afraid of learning how to do better. With an open office environment, collaboration and teamwork is more than just a value - it’s a way of life.

The Opportunity

In an exciting period of growth, MAF is scaling its programs throughout the nation through a network of partner nonprofits.

Part of a small and mighty staff, you will work closely with programs, operations, strategy, development, technology and other teams. Apply for this role if you’re interested in deepening your financial, accounting, and data management expertise in a tech-forward environment, while supporting an organization with a strong social justice mission.
