About us

Research shows that while many for-profit organizations and companies have a firm presence in Pakistan, issues around gender equality, women’s empowerment and community development remain peripheral to their mission. At the same time, non-profit organizations work with tech-trained women, but are unable to connect women to viable opportunities, mostly because of underdeveloped local tech markets, and male domination in the sector. 

Our mission is to develop a marketplace that resolves challenges of entry into the labor force for women by connecting American companies to top technical female talent in South Asia and the Middle East.

 

herDomain is currently sourcing talent through a rigorous application process and through our partners on the ground. We offer flexible hours and diverse projects to enable women to balance work and family obligations, thus enabling more women to engage in the global tech workforce. Our projects are designed to serve as a space where women with less work experience can increase their confidence and skills, while women with high skill levels can build their management and leadership capacity. Simultaneously, we invest in developing tech talent through virtual and in-person bootcamps, our fellowship program and offering skills certifications through our partners.

Our impact

  • Our talent earns wages that are well above the local Pakistani market rate (sometimes as high as double the market rate)


  • We have trained over 350+ women in communities all over Pakistan including, but not limited to, Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Gilgit, Sargodha, and Quetta 


  • Most of our talent are key contributors in their households incomes, and sometimes sole-earners who support their parents, children and wider family


  • We have generated over $100,000+ revenue for talent, and over 70% of this covers our talent’s wages. We maintain a lean budget and only take a 30% cut for administration and operations 


  • Our partners in Pakistan include some of the top Engineering university programs in the country (NUST, NED) as well as the top female-oriented tech training boot camps and nonprofits. We are also expanding our footprint in the Middle East by creating partnerships and sourcing from boot camps

  • We are continuously refining our model to meet the needs of our freelancers, and a recent survey with them shows that flexible working (90%), personal safety (50%) and skills development (30%) are the most important factors for them.
