Fuzu – Job marketplace for hiring in African countries
Fuzu is an online job marketplace for hiring in African countries carrying an important social mission. It helps people embark on meaningful careers, build better lives for their loved ones, and help companies grow by enabling them to find the right kind of talent. Fuzu takes a fresh approach to job-seeking, recruitment, and learning, focusing on testing and developing one’s skills and competencies.
The Fuzu employment platform has the largest selection of open jobs, insights into the East African job market, tailored career advice, and skill training with online educational courses.
In Swahili, ‘Fuzu’ (fu:ẑu) means to qualify, progress, graduate, become competent or succeed… It combines the strengths of the world-renowned Finnish education and innovation systems with a deep understanding of the end-user, their needs, and aspirations in the African context.
From black and yellow design colors to the platform assistant name (Mama Fuzu) – everything is targeted to the audience, African traditions, geography, and mentality of the end-user.

Added business values by Syndicode
Having been initially founded in Kenya, with the help of the Syndicode team, in 2018, the Fuzu mobile-first career development platform was able to expand its services to Uganda. In one year, the number of active users in Uganda reached 70,000.
Syndicode worked on Fuzu’s backend and frontend, including refactoring and testing. We added several new features both for the site and its API, allowing employers to create their own branded homepage, invite employees and subsidiaries, for job seekers to improve their job application experience, etc.
As online marketplace development experts, we are proud to work on this online hiring platform made with the best Finnish education practices and targeted at the African market. Syndicode did its best to provide the best experiences for Fuzu users.
Among the main features added with the help of Syndicode developers was ‘Programs’. ‘Programs’ lets a job seeker register for a program where third parties help them apply for work. This feature helps employers and employees cut down the number of actions and let the ‘Programs’ choose the proper candidates or companies that fit you.
While creating a job marketplace for talented specialists in Africa, we found a great software development partner with talented and dedicated engineers in Ukraine. Syndicode engineers strengthened Fuzu’s team and made it possible for the service to scale and work smoothly for half a million job seekers and employers. We appreciate their professional work and hope to collaborate with Syndicode again!
