Our Vision

A world where the most talented people can build a career commensurate with their ability - not their race, gender, or geography.

A note from our CEO

We exist to unlock human potential at scale. 

Andela was founded on a simple truth: Brilliance is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not. There are talented individuals everywhere, but all too often their potential is limited by arbitrary factors like race, gender, nationality, and more tangibly, through challenges of operating globally.

We started Andela to bridge that gap. Beginning in Lagos, Nigeria, and now reaching across multiple continents, Andela has become the talent network trusted by hundreds of the world’s top companies to help them seamlessly tap into global brilliance. 

We’ve helped to accelerate the careers of thousands of individuals, and brought tens of thousands more into the global talent ecosystem. Now we have sharpened our focus on bringing the best talent to all aspects of the digital product suite, roles that add tremendous value to the evolving tech world. 

With each successful match Andela delivers, our dream of a world where the most talented people can build a career commensurate with their ability – not their race, gender, or geography – becomes a bit closer to reality.
