OfferZen’s Mission

OfferZen is an online developer job marketplace in South Africa and the Netherlands. Founded and run by developers themselves, we’ve been working on our mission to help software makers unlock their potential for six years now. At our core, we’re about matching top talent with exciting opportunities in tech, but we’ve invested heavily in the local tech ecosystem from the start – first in South Africa and now also in the Netherlands.

From connecting software makers through local maker evenings and tech events to sharing content created by software makers in the community – we want to help developers thrive in their tech careers.This includes events, blogs, podcasts, mentoring programs, make days, tech editorial services and even programmable bank accounts.

We want to give developers access to the information they need to be successful in their careers.

That’s also why we regularly create data-driven resources, using both our platform data and input from the tech community, like the State of the Nation surveys.
