Andela, a Lagos and New York-based education startup has brought a brand new approach to education on the African continent.
What Andela does
A Scientific Approach to Building Engineering Teams. Andela builds high-performing engineering teams with the most talented developers from tech hubs across Africa.
1. EXTREME RECRUITING
Six week vetting process.
0.5% acceptance rate.
2. (OVER) PREPARE
Welcome to the world’s first immersive simulations program for software developers.
Two weeks of shadowing doesn’t cut it. During six months of intensive simulations, we recreate every environment a developer might encounter — from agile best practices to being thrown into a project mid-cycle with a murky code base.
3. HASSLE-FREE HIRING
Here’s how we make hiring easy:
Evaluate: Our engineers evaluate your technical needs and build a team of Andela Developers with the right expertise.
Design: With a deep understanding of your code base and internal systems, we design an onboarding plan for your Andela team.
Onboard: Your dedicated onboarding specialist gets your Andela team up to speed on your code base and internal systems.
Integrate: We fly your developers out to your headquarters for at least two weeks of building rapport with the team in-person.
4. GROWTH WITHOUT THE GROWING PAINS
Developing and retaining engineers is our specialty. Let us manage talent so you can focus on growing your business.
Raw talent only gets you so far. We invest in the infrastructure that your Andela Developers need to be successful, from state-of-the-art office space to a team of senior engineers and advisors.
