ANDELA-Connecting brilliance with opportunities


Andela is a global job placement network for software developers. Andela focuses on sustainable careers,connecting technologists with long-term engagements, access to inter-nation roles, competitive compensation, and career coaching through the Andela learning community.

In may 2014, Andela launched their first recruitment Eyde in Lagos by putting their first call for applications on Twitter. The company hired their first Cohort-four Nigerian software engineers after receiving 700 applications for 4 spots.

In 2019, Christina Sass stepped down from her full-time role as president and transitioned into a supporting role as the chair of the Andela Alumni Group. One of the six original founders, Jeremy Johnson continues to work at Andela.

Andela widened its hiring criteria for mid and senior level engineers in places such as Lagos, Nairobi and Kampala. After their first remote expansions to Ghana and Egypt, the entire organisation went fully remote in 2020.
