PHP is big in Africa, a pool you can tap into

PHP is big in Africa, a pool you can tap into

Although PHP is slightly becoming less popular over the past years, it is still one of the most widely used programming languages. Moreover, on a continent where most developers are self-taught, PHP is disproportionately present in the skillset of the average African software programmer.

At least around 50% of Africa’s 690,000 professional software developers has some experience with PHP. As a result, Africa is an interesting market to turn to when hiring locally is difficult. At Tunga, we have 650 developers in the pool. Most of them have at least some experience with PHP. And over 140 are proficient in a framework such as Laravel.


Hire our vetted, experienced PHP developers

To join Tunga, these developers have passed rigorous tests that cover both technical skills and soft skills, including situational awareness and communication.

Benefits of Hiring from Tunga

No hassle

Thirdly, working with our developers is plug ‘n play. Because we are more than 5 years on the market, Tunga knows how to take care of all legal, HR and administrative matters.

Quick & flexible access

Firstly, we have a large and vetted pool of African developers, so that we can quickly deploy staff to your team. But also increase or decrease capacity easily as your situation requires.

Great value for money

Secondly, Tunga provides experienced developers at very affordable rates (~EUR30/hr) after a satisfactory trial period. There are no extra charges for the recruitment, onboarding process or our quality monitoring.

Why companies love us

Delivered good developers

MindRight was looking to build a team of high quality software engineers. However, the local labor market for software specialists is very tight. But then they found Tunga on Google and decided to give it a try. Tunga onboarded 2 fulltime developers to help MindRight acheive results.


Built a dedicated MEAN stack team

Tunga mobilized a truly pan-African managed services team for Niluk. The team consisted of a Ugandan project manager in the person of Ronald Nyakahuma, and 3 developers from Nigeria and Egypt.


Reduced costs by over 50%

The matching and onboarding process were both done very quickly. As a result, within a few weeks Amos Walugembe was fully operational for Provolve IT. And has been ever since! “Everyone in our virtual office is super enthusiastic about Amos!”
