At Andela, we believe that while brilliance is evenly distributed, opportunity isn’t, and we are determined to bridge that gap.
Who we are
We’re a global team of technologists passionate about embracing humanity’s ever-expanding diversity and dramatically improving the modern world of work.
What we do
We power a global marketplace that enables talented people from all over the planet to come together, dismantle the status quo, and enlighten one another about more productive, healthier ways of working that lead to thriving careers, companies, and communities.
Brilliance is evenly distributed. Opportunity is not. From day one, we’ve been led by this truth. We believe deep, systemic problems aren’t as intractable as they seem. When humans decide that change is possible, that change is desirable, the impossible suddenly becomes possible.
We share knowledge and insight to unearth biases, reframe what’s possible, and connect brilliance with opportunity.
We imagine a world free of prejudices and preconceived notions about who can make a difference and how.
Our E.P.I.C. values of Excellence, Passion, Integrity, and Collaboration are the elements of our organizational DNA. We think differently and look for the best possible outcome, even if that means charting a new course.
The desire for flexibility is universal.
No matter where you live in the world or what challenges you may face, we believe you should be able to pursue your professional dreams according to where life takes you.
We are fully remote, which means everyone on the team has the freedom and support that they need to grow their careers whilst being empowered to prioritize personal wellbeing and work-life balance.
The Andela core values
The Andela core values — Excellence, Passion, Integrity, and Collaboration — are often referred to as E.P.I.C. When an Andelan says, “that’s E.P.I.C.,” they are referring to something in line with our values that advances our mission. More broadly, E.P.I.C. means pulling the future of work into the present by connecting brilliance and opportunity. Learn more about our E.P.I.C. values here
At Andela, we recognize that our strength lies in the people who drive our mission, and we want our team members to be healthy, motivated, and productive. To support Andelans’ professional growth, we’ve created several internal programs to help them design and navigate the career they’ve always wanted through clear steps and guidance.
