REMOTECODERS IS IMPROVING LIVES IN THE MENA REGION BY OPENING DOORS TO THE EUROPEAN IT INDUSTRY.
Hussam Allaham was born in Syria and had to flee in the advent of the Syrian crisis. Christian Hirsig was born in Switzerland and sold his IT company when he was 34 years old. In 2016 Christian and his wife started an NGO that teaches refugees how to code called Powercoders.
Hussam was a graduate of the first class in 2017 and eventually joined Powercoders as a team member. During the last years, they both supported the team to grow its impact to over 200 graduates, an internship placement rate of over 90%, and a job integration rate of 60%.
In 2021 they decided to try opening the doors of the European IT industry for IT talent from the MENA region. With the support of the Swiss government and several foundations, they're starting with Egypt, with a planned expansion later on to Tunisia, Turkey, Morocco, and Algeria.
