Every site or company wants to become a platform so that we depend on them for almost everything online. Facebook grew from just a student-only social network to becoming a giant platform with news, jobs, events, offers and just about everything.
Founded in 2015 by Akinola Falomo, Seun Awoyele and Opemipo Aikomo, Nigeria’s Devcenter, an online community for Nigerian software developers wants to not only connect the developers but as well connect them to jobs and projects on its site.
The site has launched ‘Devcenter Jobs’. Da solution to bridge the gap between clients who need software developers on projects and developers who need clients. The site can be accessed via the URL jobs.devcenter.co.
According to Akin Falomo, Co-founder of Devcenter, “Through the years, we’ve gotten hundreds of developer requests within the community. There are only so many requests we can manually fulfill .We decided to create Devcenter jobs to scale this process. Nigerian developers are at par with the rest of the world. It’s time to get these jobs.”
Like most freelancer developer sites, clients can have their projects handled by experienced software developers on a short contract than hire someone full-time. All one needs to do is create a project on the site, include a deadline and will get a quote from Devcenter Jobs in less than 24 hours.
Falomo says Devcenter Jobs fits right into the firm’s plan to foster interaction within Nigeria’s growing software development community, validate developer skills and earn developers more money.
Devcenter claims it has matched several developers from its community with over 20 clients on a wide range of projects from mobile to web applications. Devcenter will handle all transactions including invoicing and payments so clients only pay for work properly done. All developers on the platform are ranked by peer review ratings from the community and ratings from clients for objectivity and user safety.
