CodeLn is an automated tech recruitment platform that solves this problem by making it seamless for companies to hire African Software Engineers.
CodeLn was founded in 2018 by four software engineers, Philisiah Mwaluma and Dennis Nduta (Kenya), Dexter Ouattara (Ivory Coast) and Elohor Thomas (Nigeria) after participating in the MEST Accelerator.
CodeLn automates the entire tech recruitment process end-to-end. With as little as $100, a recruiter:
- Can post a job
- Receive recommended candidates based on the skills required,
- Conduct an online test to vet expertise,
- Schedule an interview, and
- Present a job offer, all without leaving the platform.
The company’s slogan, “Your ideal developer is just a click away,” highlights that the platform was built to optimize a fast and efficient tech hiring process.
With offices in Lagos, Accra, and, Nairobi, CodeLn aims to become the global go-to marketplace for verified African tech talent. “We currently have a database of over 8000 software engineers from across 12 African countries, and the number is rapidly growing daily. We have an in-built testing tool which we use to test our engineers to ensure quality on the platform, a good percentage of them are already verified and available on the marketplace for immediate hire” stated Elohor, CEO and Co-founder.
Following the launch, CodeLn will be offering a free list of interns to companies registering on the platform between now and the end of December 2019. These interns will be available to work and assist with the company’s project. Also, exclusive tech resources from IBM will be made available for the company’s tech staff for a two-year duration.
