Apricot Computers is adding more people to the team. We highly value team work. The ability to reach smart and creative people in the field of Information Technology was imperative. Matching our needs to the right person via the Internet is not easy. Who are these people? What have they done in the past? What accomplishments have they made? Can they work unsupervised? There are many questions to answer when hiring online and remotely.
Hiring the right team players is vital. Especially when tackling the challenge of providing low cost devices for the Lusaka Zambia market. We have a lot of work to do in working with local companies, ensuring our budget is met, and most of all providing mobile devices that are relevant to our target market.
Since its inception in 2011, our team was very small. The research and development phase didn’t have millions of dollars or large corporate support. Our humble beginnings had nothing more than a few computers and office space. Years later the maturity of our organization allowed very unique people to contribute and join the effort.
Acquiring talent from all over the world is our strength. The days of hiring people within a limited geographic region is antiquated. Today, many people are connected to the Internet allowing freelance and employment websites to give us the right person in minutes.
Happy Computing, Apricot Team
