We are aiming to build the CoA CIRCLE with responsible and caring people that we can trust - always creating & growing!

We are a geographically diverse team that collaborates. We make our Developer-as-a-Service set-up beneficial for everyone and provide unparallelled freedom to work in a way that’s most productive for each party - and avoiding 'talent drain' at once.

The time proximity between East Africa and the DACH region enables an easy-going distributed team solution - providing all means to satisfy agile project management lovers.

CULTURAL
PROXIMITY

With our genuinely positive-thinking attitude and a passion to learn and grow we continue to do great things together. We spark a great sense of camaraderie along the way.

The drive and skills of the developers bring about high quality and efficiency to diverse IT tasks. But besides all work, we never forget to entertain and make others smile.
