A Uganda-based Norwegian Tech-Firm, Laboremus, has recently said that it is ready to employ graduates who got First Class degrees in Information Communication Technology from Makerere University.
During its 66th graduation ceremony, Makerere University presented the full list of all First Class graduates, which included: Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (one student), Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (15 students) and Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering (two students).
The Managing Director of the company Ms Lucrezia Biteete, advised the graduates to send in their applications.
“If their name is on the official list, they can send an email to, and provide us with a CV, motivation letter and proof of identity. Based on that we will schedule an interview for them and if they pass we will offer them an opportunity in Laboremus,” she said.
Uganda is faced with the problem of youth unemployment currently at 83 per cent, a situation which has continued to affect Uganda’s development process.
Ms Lucrezia said since they want to expand the company, the leading software development firm in Uganda has decided to invite all the best brains within ICT for interviews and possible job offers.
The company, which was set up in Uganda in 2013, has become one of the leading software developing firms in the region. It has developed an HIV/Aids mapping tool for the Uganda Aids Commission, and providing a new investor platform (portal) for the Uganda Investment Authority called the one stop centre, among other software. Laboremus currently exports software to Norway and Kenya.
