Global Talent Accelerator
In the next ten years, there will be 1.3M software development jobs created and only 400,000 domestic computer science graduates to fill them. Africa, meanwhile, is home to the largest untapped talent pool and seven of the 10 fastest growing internet populations in the world.
Andela is on a mission to give the top 1% of talent in Africa an on-ramp to the digital economy while giving companies all over the globe like Viacom, Mastercard Labs, GitHub and SeatGeek access to untapped, world-class talent. The Andela team identifies high-potential developers throughout the African continent, shapes these fellows into world-class technical leaders via their free training program, and pairs them with companies as full-time, distributed team members.
