About Us

 Andela builds distributed engineering teams with Africa’s most talented software developers.

Solving the Global Tech Talent Shortage

Andela invests in Africa’s most talented software engineers to help companies solve the technical talent shortage and build high-performing distributed engineering teams.

There are five open jobs for every software developer looking for one in the U.S. alone. Africa is home to 1.2B people and 7 out of the world’s 10 fastest growing internet populations. Andela bridges that gap, solving the global tech talent shortage while catalyzing the growth of tech ecosystems on the African continent.

Over the past four years, Andela has identified and hired the top <1% of over 130,000 applicants to work as full-time distributed team members from our tech campuses in Lagos, Nairobi, and Kampala. Leveraging a proven, data-driven approach, we build high-performing engineering teams with Africa’s top developers to help companies build better products, faster.

Backed by Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, GV, and Spark Capital, Andela is catalyzing an interconnected global tech ecosystem.
