Affinidi Builds an On Demand Team to Reach Developer Communities
Scaling Up in a Niche Industry
As a tech company operating in the B2D (Business to Developer) sector, Affinidi wanted to grow awareness and adoption of its self-sovereign identity technology among relevant developer communities around the world. Kamal Laungani, Affinidi’s Global Developer Ecosystem Lead, needed to build a high-performing team that can accelerate the adoption of Affinidi’s game-changing technology.
However, finding talent with relevant experience in both building B2D communities and launching new technologies presented a challenge that few recruiters and agencies can support. That’s when Kamal reached out to Hire Digital.

They grew with the brand and contributed just like a full-time employee.”
