Our journey started during the rise in the popularity of remote hiring (during the pandemic). We had a fair share of challenges trying to fulfill the remote employment needs of other companies.
As a small team, we had been exploring fundamental problems facing businesses (basically startups and SMEs) until we got contacted by a company to provide tech resources such as software engineers and designers to join their team remotely on a contract.
The experience of providing tech talents to work with other companies remotely came with some unforeseen challenges.
We think via the internet, working across borders should be seamless. But unfortunately, despite the attractive pay scale, we discovered some problems that place some disadvantages on African tech talents. Well, a bit more than the factor of location.
We had first-hand experience. We encountered the problems. And, we are determined to optimize the experience of hiring (or renting, as we like to call it) African tech talents from anywhere across the globe.
