She is doing this through Talents Arena, the ultimate ‘talent marketplace’ for African job seekers and recruiters in tech.


Talents Arena is re-inventing technical hiring by matching tech gurus with ideal hiring tech companies, thus cutting down time wasted in the hiring process.

Aya has worked in the tech industry for over a decade, starting as a software engineer at IBM – Egypt.
She later moved to lead many tech teams in regional startups, including 360 Imaging, Instabug, and others.
