Tunga Academy Build With African Talent

Build With African Talent

We know how important it is to have the right people on a team—people who not only possess great technical skills but can also solve problems within the organisation. We are always excited to have such talented people on our team.

Your team deserves the same

For over 8 years, we have scoured cities and towns in Africa in search of talent in both finished and raw form. Top on the list of our motivation was to unleash Africa’s most prized resource—its vibrant and talented youth.

Our goal is to empower, develop, and transform these individuals into tech professionals who can perform at a global level. So far, we are succeeding. We currently have 3000+ software developers of varying expertise in our community.

One thing is common with our community, they are Africans and they are ready to deliver value.

This is why we are providing you with access to our fresh crop of junior developers who have been prepared not just as excellent professionals with knowledge of global best practices but also as people who can deliver value within your organisation as team players, great communicators, good problem solvers, and agile executors.
