Andela Engineering Framework

Usage Guidelines Expand for more info


Welcome to the Andela Engineering Framework! Here, you will find the expectations for your engineering level, as well as guidance on how to grow and progress in your career.  This is intended as a reference tool and not a checklist.  Not every item will be relevant to every engineer.

See the Engineering Framework Guide for help applying the framework and the Glossary of Terms for help navigating the competencies.

Please see below for the three components of the Andela Engineering Framework
  • Professional Skills: Universal core expectations for Andela engineers across all levels
  • Universal Competencies: A tech-agnostic growth matrix per level (assumes cumulative knowledge of all earlier levels)
  • Technical Competencies: Technical expertise within a specific area of focus
