Recruiting in Africa is your next best move

“My name is Andrea Goudal, and 8 years ago, I founded WIIN.io, a SaaS software that has amassed over 350,000 users and clients among the largest companies (BCG, Renault Group, AFD, EDF, BNP Paribas, etc.). We grew our business with an exceptional team of 40 employees, based between France and Togo.

Faced with the difficulty of recruiting in France, we opened an office in Africa and hired exceptional, motivated Talents, in an ideal time zone.
This remote team made our growth easy: the workload rebalanced, turnover reduced, and our recruitments multiplied.
Following our successful exit, I founded Kernel to enable any company to do as we did, to hire, with a real employment contract, their own Talents in Africa to more easily develop their business and highlight local skills.”
