Event overview

As part of our partnership launch, we are co-hosting an exclusive event with OfferZen:

How to win at hiring quality remote tech talent in Africa on August 11th 2022 at 18:00 CET 

Save me a seat

The post pandemic surge in tech hiring has created an apparent lack of senior tech talent in developed markets. Even as overall hiring slows, hiring managers continue struggling to fill their tech talent pipelines. 

One way to address this challenge is tapping into new pools of high quality tech talent. Africa has a large pool of skilled developers who are remote-ready: 74% of engineering teams in Africa work remotely, and 43% of African developers want to work for global companies. 

At our upcoming webinar with OfferZen, we’re spotlighting African software developer talent and how remote is making this a viable talent pool for tech companies and startups (38% of African devs now work for a company outside the continent).

Save me a seat

We’ll be unpacking:

  • Learnings from companies who successfully hire remote talent in Africa
  • How to de-risk your first tech hire in Africa with Playroll and OfferZen
  • What makes tech talent in Africa a competitive advantage for your company

Event attendees will not only get an OfferZen swag pack, but will also receive a special one-time offer on PlayRoll and OfferZen fees – redeemable HERE
