About Andela



Marc Andreessen, co-founder of the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz wrote: 'software is eating the world.' That statement is just as true today as it was ten years ago. Software is embedded in our day-to-day, and few industries are immune. Peak behind the code and you will find brilliant engineers pushing the boundaries of what is possible.



Talk to any engineering leader and they will tell you that access to talent is their number one barrier to building software and the businesses that will power tomorrow's economy. Research the industry and you read about the 1 million computer-programming jobs that will go unfilled in 2021.



That is where Andela comes in. We help engineering leaders at companies big and small bridge that gap. We are building tools, systems and processes to connect talent, no matter where they live, with the opportunities to do great things. To date, we have identified 1,000+ software engineers from Africa and other emerging markets and placed them as full-time, embedded members of software development teams at over 200 tech companies. Along the way, we have raised $180M from Al Gore's venture fund, Generation Partners, Google Ventures, Spark Capital, the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, and Serena Ventures.



And we are just getting started.



Our People



All of our people live and breathe our E.P.I.C values:

  • Excellence: Andelans pursue the best possible outcome and deliver it. They are relentless in raising the bar.
  • Passion: Andelans relentlessly solve for the needs of our customers - both clients and talent.
  • Integrity: Out teams start with trust and own our outcomes. We know that mistakes inevitably happen, and when they occur, they're flagged early to be solved as a team.
  • Collaboration: We step up and step out for our fellow Andelan, when necessary, and realize that our sum is greater than their parts.
