Background

Akseleran is a six-year-old Indonesian fintech start-up that had raised two rounds of funding by the time it approached Skuad in June 2021. It had ambitions to grow rapidly and scale its tech team but was finding it difficult to hire skilled tech talent in Indonesia.

Skuad’s Solution

Skuad helped solve this issue by enabling hiring and employment of outstanding engineers in India. Through Skuad's presence in India and with our full-stack platform, we also completely removed the hassle of payments, compliance and taxes in India where Akseleran does not have a legal entity.

Reduced time to hire

The immediate benefits were access to remote talent and reduced time-to-hire across borders. This in-turn reduced the fintech's product GTM timeline.
