Skills & Matching

Kenya has a talent challenge, for both employers and workers. In Kenya, where unemployment is a critical issue, we have lots of people with raw technical skills seeking opportunities to prove themselves and earn a living. The education system is unable to keep up with trends in technology and adequately equip students for the jobs of the future. On the employer side, we have a dearth of experienced technical talent to meet the demands of companies locally, and companies are not equipped to train on the job. Developers need exposure and experience, both in technical and soft skills. We think this comes while working with others towards a common goal. We provide upcoming developers with an opportunity to work in teams alongside more experienced engineers on real projects, acting as a trusted intermediary between companies with products to be developed or talent demands, and those developers with limited industry experience.
