Hiring in tech has never been more challenging.

What do you get when you combine a global deficit of highly skilled professionals and an ever-growing demand for tech workers?

A perfect storm of high turnover and companies scrambling for the best picks from a limited pool of expensive local candidates.

 And if you’ve ever tried to recruit internationally, chances are you’ve had issues with the language, communication, soft skills, and cultural fit — to say nothing of the time, cost, and red tape associated with relocation. 

And don’t even get us started on the time and budget required to grow talent yourself via academies and bootcamps.

If you’re sick and tired of all that, we have a solution for you.

Tonnie helps employers like you find experienced engineers, software developers, scrum masters, and other high-skilled tech specialists.
Better still, we do all the work for you.

We source, vet, and train talent from around the world to make them 100% ready to work for leading international companies.

We also take care of all the admin, including airfare, housing, visas, and more.

Here’s how it works:

Tonnie Helps Employers


To start, we screen all candidates from our global network of 700K+ tech specialists for:

  • Tech expertise
  • English proficiency
  • Motivation to live and work abroad
  • Soft skills like communication and the ability to work in an international environment

Based on the assessment results, we assign each candidate to one of two categories:

Tonnie Pro

Candidates who get top scores across the board are certified as Pro Talent.

Pro Talent is available for immediate placement with international employers at standard day rates.

Tonnie Potentital

What if a candidate’s tech expertise is on point, but their soft skills or English could use a little work?

If so, they’re certified as a Potential and are eligible to enroll in Tonnie’s Talent Lab here in Portugal, where they get to hone their language and soft skills to become 100% international-ready.

Tonnie Talent Lab

Tonnie’s Talent Lab

Talent Lab by Tonnie enables employers to sponsor high-skilled international specialists through a 12-month post-graduate course by Politécnico de Leiria, one of Portugal’s leading higher education providers.

Sponsored Talent Lab students receive:

  • 180 hours of immersive English, tech, and soft skills training;
  • +1600 hours of work experience with their sponsor company;
  • Airfare, co-living housing, student and work visas, and a scholarship.

What’s in It for You?

As an employer, you get to benefit from our talent’s technical skills at a lower rate – up to 35% less than the average day rate – for the duration of the program.

Talent Lab by Tonnie is not an academy or a bootcamp. You only pay sponsored talent for the hours worked. We cover the rest.

Upon successful completion of the program, your only commitment is to hire your sponsorees for a minimum of 12 months at a predefined market day rate. If they quit before the end of the 12-month period, you get indemnity pay.
