Tech hiring can be difficult, especially for those with non-tech backgrounds.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever wanted to start an app or create a website but couldn’t find a tech guru to hire or recruit. You resorted to your Facebook or LinkedIn status and maybe even got a few comments of someone tagging a person you have 5 mutual friends with. But somehow it was a dead-end.
Here are some resources making it easier for you to hire techies in Egypt.
They call themselves, “Your Tech Hiring Arm,” and help you find the perfect candidates for your tech-vacancies. All you have to do is submit a form answering the basic questions, like the job description, experience requirements, salary expectations, etc. From then on, TechieMatter takes over and shares the vacancy with their database and helps match you to the ideal candidate. Not only that, but you’ll even be able to choose from the different profiles and pick more than one.
You can contact them on their website here:
We thought we accidentally came across an international website when we first opened this website. Talents Arena has a beautiful, UX friendly interface and it’s based here in Smart Village! The founder, Aya ElGebeely was previously at Instabug and IBM after having worked in several software manager positions. So we’re quite content with her knowing exactly which perfect geek is right for you (their words, not ours – we love it!).
Aya even promises to help you recruit and hire your new geek in less than two weeks, once you’ve been presented with the recommendations. The best part is, you can even mention that you have 10+ vacancies and they’ll find them all for you!
You can contact Aya on the website here.
Not only do they help you find techies that they themselves equipped with the knowledge and knowhow through intensive courses, but they are also the first Apple Authorized Training Provider in Egypt. That means that you can find Apple certification developers! If that’s not a great confirmation that someone is a great candidate for your company – we don’t know what is. After IDE fully polishes up their applicants, they help them find tech internships and opportunities. Hence, this is where you come in and onboard them onto your team!

So what happens after you find a techie (especially in the cybersecurity field)? You usually look at their previous work, test their knowledge with some sneaky interview questions and go with your gut. CyberTalents is one step ahead of you. Apart from helping you recruit the best cybersecurity techies, they even help you assess the candidates. There’s little competitions on the platform where techies can show you what they’ve got. The platform then automatically ranks them based on their skills and their tailored personnel assessment to help you differentiate between all the techies around.
This one is a little less tech-focused and more about job postings in general, but you can also find the techies hiding out here! However, the platform doesn’t only connect employers and employees, but it also organizes events and workshops where techies and others can develop their skills and network.
If you’re looking for a company rather than an individual employee for tech hiring to take on your project – a lot of people do – there’s also entities that perform project-based tech services. So the question actually becomes software house, in-house developer or freelancer? It all depends on preference. Some people prefer for someone to be present at the office, to get a glimpse of the culture and everything that’s going on. If someone hasn’t reached the stage of having their own office, a freelancer that works remotely might be the better choice.
So, when do you opt for software houses instead of tech hiring? Usually, you end up going for this option when you’re looking for the whole package. The bottom line is, creating a website or app is rarely a one-man-show. You’ll need a UX designer, a backend, a frontend, a mobile lead, and and and. The downside is, this option is usually also the most expensive, but that’s because you’re getting a whole team. Here are some of the software houses you can reach out to for your “tech inquiries”:
Techies are all around us!
Even if you can’t find them in your own circle, there’s a lot of startups that are now making it easier for you to get the ball rolling and start coding and developing.
