Mentoring junior developers

“Moving to Rwanda as a Tech Expert in The Room has been such a swell experience. My trip and accommodation were lovely, and I’ve fallen in love with the people and scenery here. The weather is great and I’m glad to be able to wake up, and do what I love from such an amazing place. I’m also excited to be contributing to the global tech ecosystem by mentoring junior developers in The Room."

Influencing young African talents

“With The Room, I can directly influence thousands of young African talent, and help them settle in life as software engineers. This is very motivating. At the same time, I can continue doing my job and work I love. When we arrived in Rwanda, and met The ROOM's team we found ourselves in a very friendly and fun community. Our moving experience went smoothly, and we settled in nicely especially with our child joining the local nursery school."
