Before anyone takes on a new role or job, they typically do some research on the role which helps them know what to look forward to from day one. Such research is crucial to succeeding in the said role.

Applying for a job can be an ordeal if candidates don’t have access to information that helps their process. Access to information relating to company culture and employee experience plays an important role in easing the experience. As the nature of work tilts more and more towards remote and distributed teams, such information needs to readily accessible.

The slug on our ad banners invites software engineers to come to do their best work at Andela. That line is anything but trivial. We acknowledge the fact that work takes a significant chunk of a person’s time and therefore needs to be meaningful at the very least. We want our people to know for a fact that the work they do matters.

Impact on customers and revenue aren’t the only parameters for measuring meaningful work. It is a conversation that begins with employee experience and culture. As Malcolm Gladwell stated in a 2008 interview, “Meaningful work is work that is autonomous. Work that is complex, that occupies your mind. And work where there is a relationship between effort and reward — for everything you put in, you get something out.”

At Andela, we have distilled a set of value propositions for every software engineer looking to join us. They offer clarity on everything from culture & experience to on-the-job growth.

3. Flexible and Remote Work

We have teammates working from several different cities and locations around the world. Andelans have the option of working from anywhere and will have the support and access they require to do their best work, whether they’re in the office or remote.

4. Fun Culture
