CodeLn, a pan-African online talent marketplace has launched Remote CodeLn, an online platform that helps companies to manage their freelancers and track their product development tasks throughout the product development process.

Since the COVID Pandemic, the request for freelancers has heightened and some companies are beginning to adopt the uncommon remote workforce model but this comes with peculiar challenges.

CodeLn identified an opportunity to make the adoption of the Gig Workforce seamless for companies. It’s a new platform, Remote CodeLn is an innovative platform that helps companies/individuals to post their tech project, receive bids from freelancers, pick from verified bidders, draft product development contract, assign/manage product development tasks, pay freelancers in tranches based on milestones completed, all without leaving the platform. Both the company and the programmer set tasks and timeline for each milestone which is documented in a contract.

The platform stands as an intermediary between both parties and guarantees that milestones are completed before payment is done as the funds are kept in escrow.

We saw the need to enlighten companies on how to manage programmers working remotely as it was not the norm in Africa before COVID hit. But we soon realised the additional need for a tool to help them manage this process seamlessly that is why we built Remote CodeLn. This platform ensures a smooth process for both the company and the programmer” stated Elohor, CEO and Co-founder.
