IT Support Specialist for Local NGO

Vietnam has become a five-star destination for both tourism and business purposes, and no wonder. Pristine white sand beaches, lovely terraced rice fields in the highlands, world-renowned national parks--including Halong Bay, all contribute to making Vietnam one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The people are winsome and easy to like, friendly and hardworking. Their hard work has enabled Vietnam to progress dramatically from poverty to prosperity, and on the political world scene as well. An opponent of the United States a half-century ago, Vietnam now welcomes Americans with arms opened wide.

Our organization enjoys a special relationship with the country, being recently recognized as one of the top NGOs serving in Vietnam. You will work embedded in a local Vietnamese University or at a hospital as an IT specialist. You will help develop their software or hardware, help maintain their system and work closely with the Vietnamese people in their environment. It is an excellent opportunity to live out your faith in a relational way with co-workers, neighbors, and friends that you will develop—and learn the Vietnamese language once or twice a week.
