How Andela is building the future of work for technologists around the world

article content banner

At Andela, we believe that brilliance is evenly distributed but opportunities are not. We’re changing lives across the globe, while bringing people together around the world of work.

As the world shrinks and engineering jobs increase in number, where you’re located in the world matters less: the anytime, anywhere workplace is officially here to stay.

Andela’s CEO and co-founder, Jeremy Johnson, alongside other members of our leadership team, recently took part in CBS’ Global Thought Leaders series, to discuss Andela and the growing importance of the remote workplace. You can watch the full video here.

Jeremy Johnson firmly believes that the future of work is remote. “We’ve realized that we’re not all going back to the office. Andela is the world’s fastest-growing technologist marketplace. We help the best technologists in the world accelerate their career by connecting them to top companies.”

Andela has created a community of technologists from over a hundred countries. And by building the future of work, we’re giving back to technology communities across the globe. “Andela contributes to supporting communities in a variety of ways. The first is by helping people get better jobs. According to a 2022 3rd party impact survey, the average person who gets a role through Andela increases their take-home pay by 84% percent from their previous role. This is up from 64% in 2021.”

Alongside helping technologists to grow their careers and increase their salaries, Andela is community and education-focused. Jeremy Johnson comments “Andela invests in the communities where we source and support talent, so at any given point there are tens of thousands of people working on becoming better software developers through programs that Andela runs in partnership with companies like Facebook, Microsoft, and Google.

Courtney Machi, VP of Product is excited by the possibilities Andela’s new technology is offering technologists in our network. “Our team, leveraging the technology we’ve built, is actually checking in (with technologists) periodically to understand ‘How is this engagement going for you? Are you satisfied?’ We can use that info to help make sure that (you) are having a great experience.”

And alongside career support, Andela is proud to offer benefits that improve their quality of life.

Alvaro Oliveira, EVP of Talent Business, comments “We truly believe in technologists and we want to take care of their careers, not only to find a job for them… but also guide them through the next jobs that they will find and provide them with access to other services, like health insurance. Andela’s here to help technologists in that journey.”

As Jeremy Johnson notes, remote work not only offers flexibility: it connects people across the globe. “By bringing people together, across cultures and continents, we’re able to show that we’re all actually more similar than we are different. That’s one of the reasons I’m so passionate about Andela’s mission and the opportunity we have to change the way the world works.”
