Andela extends engineering teams with world-class software developers. We recruit the most talented developers on the African continent, shape them into technical leaders, and place them as full-time distributed team members with companies that range from Microsoft and IBM to dozens of high-growth startups. Backed by Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, GV (Google Ventures) and Spark Capital, Andela is building the next generation of global technology leaders.

We believe that brilliance is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.

Our mission is to give brilliant young people in Africa an on-ramp to the digital economy and give companies access to untapped, world-class talent.

Talent is gender-neutral

Andela is committed to driving change for women in technology – and we’re starting with all-female cohorts, mentoring young women in tech, and ensuring a safe, secure, and fair work environment.
