Testimonials from Our Clients

testimonial

We are a Fintech company, with a large team. As with similar companies in Nigeria acquiring well-trained software engineers was a challenge. When we heard about the Decagon Fellowship Program, we decided to subscribe to it to bridge this gap. The engineers from the fellowship settled in quickly and were able to contribute to the team right away. More importantly, we now have a core of engineers that can grow with us with more predictability and stability thereby preventing disruptions associated with unplanned engineering talent exits.
