Grow your team in Democratic Republic of the Congo with Remote

Note that we are busy building our own entity in Democratic Republic of the Congo to provide you with the best possible employment solutions for your employees, but our employer of record service is not yet live in this country.

To employ in Democratic Republic of the Congo, companies must own a local legal entity in the country or work with a global employment solution.

In the countries where we do offer our EOR services, Remote takes on the responsibility and legal risks of international employment so you can focus on hiring great talent and growing your business.
