Sourcing talent from unfamiliar geographies is really hard to do, especially where you don’t have a strong brand. Your time should be spent focusing on your customer and product, not recruiting tech talent across the globe. At Andela, our deep ties to local communities, our strong brand presence, and our dedicated recruiting team has enabled us to source over 200,000 engineers (and counting) from across the African continent–one of the top 10 fastest growing internet economies.
Let’s face it, assessing talent from global ecosystems falls outside of your wheelhouse (and that’s okay). At Andela, we accept the top 2% of developers who demonstrate grit, problem-solving ability, and learning velocity. Every Andela engineer is leveled against an industry validated, 45-point engineering competency framework, a proprietary, 30-question rubric based on seniority and stack, and undergoes a behavioral, situational assessment to evaluate leadership skills.
Great managers hire for potential. Andela screens for it. We match your team and project needs with high caliber individuals who are imbued with both the hard software engineering skills and the soft people skills necessary to work as part of a high functioning, distributed team.
When Andela engineers join your team, they operate as full-time, long-term employees. Our engineers don’t work with other companies and they don’t operate on a project basis. In fact, Andela engineers enjoy all of the perks of modern workplaces: salary, benefits, payroll, PTO, meals, and more. We provide world-class infrastructure so you don’t have to.
We take great pride in matching our developers with the best partners. Tell us about your team below!
