We believe that great developers are everywhere.

And with the right opportunities, they can build an awesome future.

Factors preventing great developers from building an awesome future:

Many great opportunities remain undiscovered
Both developers and companies miss out in the way they’re looking for each other: Everyone focuses on the same geographical areas and channels, missing out on potentially better opportunities beyond.

It’s becoming harder to find the right fit
New geographical areas, ever changing tech stacks, countless new industries hiring for software developers — cutting through the noise and identifying a great opportunity or candidate is increasingly complex.

A great match doesn’t guarantee success
There are many hurdles in the way of a developer joining a team: Remote interviewing, lengthy negotiation and cross-border employment admin are only a few.

Our mission is to connect every developer with opportunities to build an awesome future.
We’re a developer marketplace that helps you find the right fit.
Our platform flips the regular recruitment model: On OfferZen, companies reach out to job-seeking developers instead of the other way around.

How it started

OfferZen was founded in 2015, by two brothers and
developers, Philip and Malan Joubert, in Cape Town, South Africa.
OfferZen was founded in 2015, by two brothers and developers, Philip and Malan Joubert, in Cape Town, South Africa.
For developers, by developers
Philip and Malan were also involved in starting Africa's most successful crypto exchange, Luno, as well as many other successful African businesses, including Root, JourneyApps, and SnapScan. This is why our growing 160+ team is rooted in maker culture.
Always community-first
Since day 0, we've been supporting tech meetups, running build days for developers, helping developers create awesome content and designing MANY really nerdy shirts. Over the last six years, our community has grown to over 100 000 software developers across Africa and Europe,
Connecting developers in “Middle-earth”
In 2020, we decided to take OfferZen to Europe to connect even more companies and developers. We opened our beachhead in Amsterdam, and have been rapidly adding developers and companies from many countries throughout what we call "Middle-earth" (the GMT+2 timezone) since.
