Andela Director, Partner Engineering Jobs in KenyaAbout Andela Marc Andresson, 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 eight 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 growing their business.
Research the industry and you read about the 1 million computer-programming jobs that will go unfilled in 2020.
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 placed them as full-time, embedded members of 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.
All of our people live and breathe our E.P.I.C values:
Excellence We are lifelong learners who strive for mastery of our craft
Passion We believe we are going to change the world and act accordingly
Integrity We choose extraordinary people and then trust them to do the right thing
Collaboration We know our sum is greater than our parts
