The MAFistas

Located in a vibrant and culturally diverse neighborhood in San Francisco, MAF attracts bright and talented staff members who are driven to create sustainable, scalable social change.

As a nonprofit and tech startup in one, we attract people who like to jump in with both feet and who aren’t afraid of learning how to do better. In our open office environment, collaboration and teamwork are more than just values—they’re a way of life.

Hailing from many different cultural and professional backgrounds, we are drawn together by a passion for embracing technology and creativity to make the world a better place for hardworking families.
