Soko Electroplating Lab Technician Vacancy in Kenya

Electroplating Lab Technician
Supply Chain

About Us: Be part of a fast growing, award winning, and dynamic fashion tech business that has been recognized as a game changing ethical fashion innovator by Forbes, CNN, the World Bank, Huffington Post, and more. 

Our mission is to transform ethical fashion from a niche player in the global fashion industry to a meaningful and competitive sourcing and purchasing option for global brands and individual consumers alike. 

Soko’s unique model is doing just this by pioneering what we like to call Ethical Fast Fashion - providing close to real time trend responsive product that is both price sensitive and socially and ethically handcrafted by marginalized creatives living and working in the developing world. 

Our modern, fashion forward products, handmade from ethically sourced and upcycled materials, have become a favourite of more than 300 international retailers ranging from Nordstrom, The Reformation, and Anthropologie, and endorsed for social impact by the United Nations, USAID, and the World Bank.
Our supply chain innovations have enabled us to match marginalized developing world artisan production with real-time global demand for Soko’s designs. 

We currently manage a network of over 1,000 independent artisans through what we call our “virtual factory” - a mobile phone driven supply chain that coordinates opportunity, production and fulfilment with no centralized point of production or overhead. 

This results in a model so efficient and affordable that artisans retain an unprecedented 25-35% of revenue while Soko is able to compete on price and timelines in the mainstream market.
