What you can expect from your Andela Developer:
Andela Developers understand the agile process, the basics of data structures, how to identify and manage stakeholders and expectations, and team dynamics.
Andela Mid-Level Developers supplement the core skills of all Andela Developers with the increased experience and independence required to solve complex, analytical problems with innovative approaches and solutions.
Andela Senior Developers are skilled at writing complex applications, have a deep understanding of application lifecycles, databases, and services such as queues and caching. They can also provide guidance and mentorship to more junior developers.
Andela Technical Team Leads provide a primary point of contact for your team when working with Andela. The TTL ensures that an application is meeting your business goals and the needs of your users — and ensures the quality and productivity of the entire team through mentorship and guidance.
Andela developers are looking for an actual solution. They take our feedback and then actually challenge the status quo. I think that’s what has worked for us.
The great thing about Andela developers is they're as energized and as motivated as anybody else on our team. These guys are hungry, creative, aggressive—the kinds of things you would expect from a Silicon Valley engineer.
We see Andela as an opportunity to bring someone in without any bad habits -- someone we can develop, invest in, and count on as a long-term member of our team. They have a hunger and a thirst to learn that is stronger than you’ll usually find.
From a developer standpoint, they’re extremely talented and hungry across the board. They want to prove that there is good talent in Africa and that they’re here for a reason. They’ve brought a lot of energy and excitement to the team.
By the time you set up their company email, Andela Developers know your code base — and your business.
