What Our Staff Says
I joined TechnoServe after completing my undergraduate degree in international development, because I found their private-sector approach to be a refreshing departure from the well intentioned, yet poorly performing development models I studied all through college. Tired of studying what didn’t work, I was happy to join an organization that gets results! I’ve stayed with TechnoServe, moving through various roles over the past five years, because the organization nurtures creativity and rewards initiative. Our world-class managers understand that in order to get the job done in this lean organization, junior members of the team should be encouraged to take on responsibility and share ideas. This is a place to grow.
