Africa: tech’s vast untapped talent pool

The tech sector on the African continent is growing at an enormous pace. According to Google and Accenture, there are 690.000 professional software developers on the continent. Many of them aspire to work for international companies and on challenging projects.

Tunga is on the market since 2015 and has helped over 150 companies to source high quality engineers at affordable prices. Our pool of 350 developers harbours a wide variety of talented IT professionals, including many full-stack developers.

Hiring through Tunga

Untapped pool of talent

African developers apply to join our Tunga every day. Our pool currently has over 350 developers from 24 African countries. To be able to join Tunga, the candidates need to pass a variety of tests that cover technical skills and soft skills, including situational awareness and communication.

Custom recruitment

Once you have provided us with the profile you are looking for we start the recruitment process among the developers in our pool. It generally takes up to 4 days to provide you with a shortlist of 3 candidate profiles, including CV and test scores. When we don’t have suitable or available candidates in our pool, we do an out-of-platform search, that usually takes about 14 days. Based on your preferences we organize interviews and when necessary we do additional tests.

Getting started

Once you have chosen the final candidate we will send you a formal offer. We have flexible arrangements ranging from part-time and temporary 4 hour contracts to full-time open ended contracts. The first month you are assigned a talent manager who follows the collaboration closely, organizing a joint kick off meeting, consulting both you and the developer, and generally ensuring that things take off smoothly.


Once the collaboration has taken off, the talent manager checks in regularly with both you and the developer. Either by means of a short survey or by calling/mailing. If an issue arises, the talent manager will troubleshoot and make sure that the continuity of your assignment is guaranteed.
