Gaper.io highlighted the Disconnect between the Tech Industry and Software Developers

There is always a prominent gap in connecting the business with the software developers, which exists globally to meet their technology needs met at a common point.

Gaper, a firm built on the premise of addressing the Disconnect between the companies needing software development services and the developers/engineers looking for work. The firm started remotely recruiting talented developers worldwide by understanding the company’s needs and rigorously vetting the candidates for their suitability. The necessary training and mentoring/guidance were also part of the process.

The co-founders interestingly had started tapping into this territory of remote work setups and the distributed teams, and an arrangement that will soon be the need of the work. The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic began in the world to upend life and change almost the business landscapes forever. These lockdowns and the time to stay at home or work from home directives transformed the overall business models making remote work a salient feature of ‘new normal’. Gaper here couldn’t have been more relevant.

However, just last month, the firm partnered with the Generation, a global employment non-profit organization founded by McKinsey. The Generation focuses on transforming the education-to-employment systems that support the individuals by proper training and placing them in the right careers that would otherwise be inaccessible but now works as a good path.

Gauher Aftab, CEO FYEPW said that we are much excited to deploy our global expertise to help the software industry expand its growth exponentially and create an impact across all other segments of the economy. As only 10% of IT, graduates are employable in Pakistan, while only 20% of its IT graduates meet the top software companies’ skill-criteria.

The full-stack developers are highly proficient in both the front-end and in the back-end languages and frameworks and in network, server, and hosting environments. To get this breadth and depth of knowledge isn’t that easy; however, it takes developers many years of hands-on experience in a variety of job roles to become full-stack developers. And being well-versed in business logic and user experience both, it is also a must for a full-stack developer.

Gaper’s partnership with the Generation has also allowed it to increase the level of its technology training games in the country, Pakistan. In a complex and unpredictable new world where the coronavirus has made millions out of jobs, the company Gaper is working tirelessly just to enhance the youth’s employability while serving global companies successfully with the right technology talent at the same time for more success.
