Staff augmentation

Trouble finding IT talent in your local market? Africa’s got talent…

Many of our clients struggle to find and keep high quality software engineers in their local market. With Tunga you can flexibly hire individual engineers to add to your organisation. We guide you throughout the process: match, onboard and support.

Once you’ve found your match with one of the candidates we’ve provided you with, he or she will become part of your team, working as a remote developer from wherever they are based in Africa. While you manage the developer(s) directly, we take care of all the infrastructure, legal and administrative matters, and even training and career development.

Talent Pool

New talent applies to join our platform everyday. We currently have over 350 developers in the pool, from 24 African countries. To be able to join our pool, the candidates need to pass tests that cover not only their technical skills, but also a number of soft skills tests like communication and situational awareness.


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


The moment you have chosen a candidate we will send you a formal proposal. 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 stays on top of things, 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 is there to troubleshoot and ensure that continuity of your assignment is guaranteed.
