Pan-African Freelance Marketplace Platform Guarantees “The End of Hire’s Block”
Gebeya Inc., the Pan-African Marketplace for freelance professional talent, today announced a new innovation to accelerate a more stable, dynamic African tech talent infrastructure. After releasing a redesigned, fully-automated web-client application last June, Gebeya has introduced its new search feature to accommodate the continuous growth in requests from startups and SMEs across the continent and around the world.
The new search engine will optimize how clients find and connect to their talent. To help clients fill job vacancies and augment their teams with thousands of pre-vetted freelance talent from more than 30 African countries, the powerful search feature will enable instant access in a few clicks, plus the ability to filter for each talent’s:
and the ability to request to hire directly from their profile page.
. . . all in an instant. “This is the gold-standard delivery of the promise of the Gebeya marketplace,” said Thierno Amar Niang, Chief Platform Officer. “Now truly any business from around the world will have a single trusted gateway through which they can access their choice of pre-vetted professionals in an instant.”

Features to address urgent talent-hiring business needs
In response to demand from some clients, Gebeya’s leadership and engineering teams quickly identified the new search engine as the tool to accelerate meeting the hiring needs of its valued clients—startups, SMEs, and multinationals in industries as diverse as fintech, logistics, and telecommunications.
At every level, organizations must practice smart hiring, which impacts not only operations, and speed, but also revenue: the cost of a bad hire can be upwards of $200,000. Startups and SMEs have already trusted Gebeya to fill tech, design, management, and marketing roles leveraging its existing products:
- G-Talent: Multilingual, multinational, pre-vetted talents matched according to project request specifications, including preferred skill sets, experience level, and budget. Talents available for short- or long-term assignments.
- G-Made: A custom solution built by a team of trusted, vetted experts to execute a project based on specific milestones.
- G-Staffing: Talent full-time engagement placement cuts recruitment time in half by selecting high-quality talent from our pool of pre-vetted professionals.
“Our core products remain the foundation of our business; but the new search feature resonates with clients who want the liberty to search for talent with the ease they shop for products on Amazon,” said Amadou Daffe, CEO & Co-founder. “We’re confident that this will speak to the main pain points of hiring in Africa: cost, experience level, and retention.”
The Search difference: What pain point is Search solving?
This new feature brings more horsepower to the client web portal at Gebeya.com. With a single sign-on solution, business owners and decision-makers can sign up at no cost, and immediately access pre-screened, qualified, multilingual professionals throughout Africa. They can connect with available talents who suit their budget and experience level, thanks to a customizable interface that puts the client in control. No unsolicited calls or connections to screen; clients will only connect with talents they choose.
