Heralded as Africa’s Silicon Valley, Nigeria is an important country for Tunga. Some 50% of the 750+ qualified Tunga developers live here. In the past 2 years, Tunga’s community and local team in Lagos has mushroomed. But travel restrictions made it virtually impossible to travel there. Last month, we finally had a chance to catch up. It certainly wasn’t time wasted!
Much to the envy of colleagues both in Uganda and in Europe, COO Reinier van Scherpenzeel, Head of Talent Viola Nuwaha and Talent Manager Esther Ninsiima paid a long overdue visit to the Tunga branch in Lagos.
When we opened our Lagos office in October 2019, it had only three occupants. Now, it is supposed to accommodate 17 people. 11 of them are coders who are on Tunga’s dedicated team for rb2, which continues to expand. Our own Lagos crew has grown too – it currently boasts six members, none of whom we’d met in real life before! And this is all in addition to the many Nigerian devs who work for our clients remotely.
