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.

Hiring PHP developers through Tunga

Untapped pool of talent

African developers apply to join our Tunga every day. As a result, our pool currently has over 650 developers from 24 African countries. To be able to join Tunga, the candidates need to pass a variety of tests. These cover both technical skills and soft skills, including situational awareness and communication.


Custom matching

We ask you to provide us with the profile you are looking for. After that, we start the matching 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. Further, when we don’t have suitable or available candidates in our pool, we do an out-of-platform search. This usually takes about 14 days. In addition, 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. After that, in 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. Further, if an issue arises, the talent manager will troubleshoot. And make sure that the continuity of your assignment is guaranteed.
