The CodeXtra app was developed by a Ghanaian App Developer and Freelancer, Ebenezer Narh-ngwah to provide solutions to some of the freelancing problems he faced.
When it comes to freelancing in Ghana, only a handful of homegrown solutions are on the market. A lot of people resort to sites like Up Work for solutions which is not carefully crafted to suit the Ghanaian.
There are groups of people, who actually freelance, but don’t even call it “freelancing”.
Yes, freelancing in Ghana is somewhat sketchy and not clearly defined. A Freelancer is a self-employed expert in his/her field, providing services and solutions to a number of clients and getting paid for services rendered, is most likely considered a freelancer.
CodeXtra was developed by a Ghanaian Tech Person and App Developer, Ebenezer Narh-ngwah to connect, share and collaborate with persons in the IT space to provide solutions to our everyday problems.
For freelancers in the IT Space, CodeXtra connects with potential clients and exposes your freelancing business with ease. Freelancers have the chance to showcase their portfolios and also provides other freelancers with the platform to connect and work together on a single project.
And for Employers who need the services of freelancers, CodeXtra provides the platform to access a catalogue to search find and select the best candidates for your project.
Some popular requests from employers on the CodeXtra platform are the App and Website Development, Corporate and Personal Logo design as well as other Graphic Designing work and the designing and development of software applications.
Payment for services is not done on the app. Rather, employer and freelancer bargain and the payment is made through their agreed means. This means that if agreed on, you could be making payments to the freelancers via means like Mobile Money.
