Andela Spreads Tentacles To All African Countries
Andela has indicates interest to accept engineers from all African countries to double its global talent pool and connect an even greater number of specialised engineers with opportunities.
Andela helps companies build remote engineering teams and is accepting pan-African applications for senior engineers with in-demand stack experience such as Node, React, Python and Ruby.
Andela co-founder and CEO, Jeremy Johnson,
said, “Over the past five years, we have become experts at identifying engineering excellence from nontraditional backgrounds. We know that there are extremely talented engineers across Africa and we believe that opportunity should not be limited by proximity to a major tech hub. Being a remote-first engineering organization allows us to open up access to Andela for engineers across the continent..
“By removing restrictions on location, we will double our pool of potential talent to the roughly 500,000 engineers in Africa who can now leverage Andela to work with top international engineering teams. Ultimately, our goal is to break down the barriers that prevent talent and opportunity from connecting by providing an easier, more efficient way for companies to scale global engineering teams.”
Andela helps its customers including Cloudflare, Wellio, ViacomCBS, and Women Who Code, gain access to high-quality software engineers who work as long-term, embedded team members. Today’s news will further enable companies that work with Andela to source the talent they need, when they need it, by opening up to additional talent pools across the continent with an even greater diversity of experiences and technology stacks.
