Dream71 Bangladesh to develop job portal for East Timor govt
Dream71 Bangladesh Limited, the country's leading software company, will develop a job portal for the government of East Timor.
The portal will be developed under a project titled Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship Skills (YEES) of the United Nations Development Program-East Timor (UNDP East Timor).
UNDP-East Timor and Dream71 have signed an agreement in this regard, according to a statement.
An international tender was invited by the United Nations Development Program-East Timor last May for the design and development of a government job portal.
A significant number of companies from different countries of the world participated in the tender.
Bangladesh's Dream71 won the project based on technical and financial proposals.
The purpose of the project is to create a bridge between the employer and the job seeker.
Apart from making the portal, the apps for Android and iOS platforms will also be made under this agreement.
Earlier, under two other projects of UNDP, Dream71 made mobile games for the Ministry of Education of East Timor and software for the Parliament.
In addition to East Timor, it also worked with UNDP-Bangladesh and UNDP-Turkey offices to develop software.
Rashad Kabir, managing director of Dream71, said: "Getting any international work is a great pleasure, because we are not only earning foreign currency, but also the reputation and branding of Bangladesh is increased through our work."
"We have successfully completed two more projects in East Timor before this, and they have continued to trust Dream71," said Kabir, also a director of the Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services.
Apart from East Timor, the local software company has supplied software to more than 15 countries, including Japan, South Korea, Turkey, Bhutan, Netherlands, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan and Lithuania.
