Each year 50.000 It-candidates graduate from Cairo’s Universities

Aug 18, 2016

Everyone who works with IT in Scandinavia has heard about it: Too few IT candidates are trained to meet the needs of the market – More students are being admitted into university level IT-education across Scandinavia but it’s far from enough and it will take years for those students to reach a senior developer status. It is difficult to attract employees to companies outside the metropolitan areas. And if one cannot offer attractive conditions, it’s hard to attract newly educated candidates because they can pick and choose between different lucrative offers.

And what do you do, if you are a startup company that is not located in the capital or a larger metropolitan area, and you need one or more developers for your business? How do you proceed?

Many more companies are beginning to look abroad and explore opportunities in offshore/Nearshore solutions. There are a host of providers in the IT-offshore sector but it can be difficult to choose the right provider.

If you are considering choosing CrossWorkers, here are some key facts about us:

We have our IT offshore development center in Cairo and we have chosen Cairo because the city offers a wide range of attractive opportunities for Scandinavian companies – including the fact that 50,000 IT-students graduate from Cairo’s universities annually – far more than the amount being educated throughout the Scandinavia. There are so many qualified candidates in Cairo that it is almost always possible to find suitable employees for Danish companies – even those with very special and high level qualifications and specialist knowledge. For an Egyptian IT employee, it is seen as great opportunity to work internationally with Danish clients.

It is clear that there is a difference between working with a Scandinavian developer who sits in a Scandinavian office and working with an Egyptian employee who is located several thousand kilometers away and has a different culture.

First of all it is extremely important to define exactly what kind of IT-resource you need for your business early on in the recruitment phase. What kind of employee should be found, who should they communicate with in Scandinavia on a day-to-day basis? This is where our experience benefits you. We have done it numerous times and we know how essential it is.

In the next step of the recruitment process it is very important to find the proper match. Between the Danish company and the Egyptian IT-specialist. This is done best by meeting the candidates in person in Cairo for a final interview. Here the client chooses the right candidate-of course in consultation with us

At the office in Cairo you will discover that we have created a small piece of Scandinavia. The management style is a good mix of Egyptian and Scandinavian management styles. Precisely because it is paramount that nothing is lost in translation between our clients and our Egyptian IT-developers we regularly organize cultural workshops with information about Scandinavian management principles. And it works.
Together with our proper working conditions, the highly competitive salary, health insurance and the other benefits that most Egyptians are unaccustomed with, we offer very competitive terms of employment of that attract the best IT-specialist that Cairo has to offer.
