The US Team visiting The Jitu Headquarters in Nyeri, Kenya – November 2, 2021

The Jitu has a permanent team based in our headquarters in Nyeri, Kenya. We work with our US team in Atlanta, GA, to offer scalable remote software engineers to businesses globally. November 2021, the US Team visited the Jitu Home office for the first time since the company was launched in Kenya in April 2020. Both teams had an amazing time getting to know each other, learning about the similarities and differences of the cultures in Kenya and the US. During the visit, the teams were able to align efforts and create synergy to better serve our clients.


Chaka Ranch Team Building  – October 31, 2021

Work hard, play hard is what we do at The Jitu. We had some fun times engaging with each other for team recreational activities at the Chaka Ranch Kiganjo, Nyeri County. It was a great exercise for all of us connecting, building trust, encouraging communication, and increasing collaboration to win team challenges. All of us had a fantastic time mastering new skills as well as experiencing the breathtaking views of Mt.Kenya and Aberdare Mountain Range. This was truly an unforgettable experience for the entire Jitu Team.


Thunguma Children’s Home  – July 31, 2021

The Jitu is passionate about giving back to the community and our goal to have “giant” impact on people’s lives is to connect with those who need us the most in the local community. We’ve got an opportunity to visit Thunguma Children’s Home in Nyeri county, where our team spent time getting to know the children. The team provided some essential items to support the children’s daily activities. We spent time playing soccer, reading, and cooking. The children taught us how to make chapatis (flatbread with flakey layers). The Jitu had a great time visiting Thunguma Children’s Home.

As The Jitu continues the mission of providing opportunities for the young people of Nyeri, we are always looking for partnerships that support that mission. We are very excited about the meeting we had below with the Vice-Chancellor of the Dedan Kimathi University of Technology and the leadership staff that has led to that type of partnership. Dedan Kimathi University of Technology and The Jitu will be working together to develop a pipeline of some of the best new engineers and technical resources the country has to offer. Developing this project will allow The Jitu to identify the university’s most talented students and help them secure future employment.

The Jitu Appreciation Luncheon – March 20, 2021

It is hard to believe we have only been a company for a year and have been on the ground in Kenya for only six months. Getting from 3 to 20 employees in six months is exciting. The leadership of The Jitu wanted to show appreciation to the employees and individuals who have made that growth possible. To do that, we decided to have a luncheon and invite the employees and their families. It was great to see everyone and have the chance to thank them all for all the work to get The Jitu where it is today.
