After onboarding

No. Although employees also undergo thorough screening, testing, and interviewing to join Gebeya, being a Gebeya Talent differs from being an employee. You are a freelancer in our talent marketplace, whom we will match with projects from a variety of corporations and exciting startups.

G-Talent projects can be short- or long-term, at hourly, daily, or monthly rates. G-Made projects include payment milestones, based on deliverables.

Projects range from development and promotion of mobile and web apps, to new product and market launches, to market research and writing. Gebeya is Pan-African, but has clients from around the African continent, Europe, and in the U.S. Gain access to great-paying freelance opportunities in Software Development, Project Management, Digital Marketing, Product Management, Graphics & Design, Cybersecurity, and Artificial Intelligence.
