Andela Begins Global Expansion, Including a Major Growth of Engineering Talent in Latin and South America with deep roots in Africa .

Andela, a global talent network that helps companies build remote engineering teams, announced the global expansion of their engineering talent.

Andela clients can tap into regional expertise and nuances that can support their international growth by the company expansion.

Andela has a proven track-record of connecting remote engineers with opportunities from businesses across the globe, and is perfectly positioned to support global talent for businesses worldwide.

Andela has 37 engineers across five continent which will make it easy for clients to have access to a truly global network of talented engineers.

Andela is an attraction for global engineering talent. Applications from qualified engineers outside of Africa have increased by more than 750% in the past six months.
More than 30% of Andela inbound engineer applications came from outside of Africa, half of which came from Latin America, creating significant increases in time-zone coverage for Andela clients.

Even with the fast global growth, Africa is also expanding rapidly, with 500% growth in the past six months.

“Andela’s mission is to connect brilliance with opportunity. This expansion has always been part of our long term roadmap, and we’re excited that the world is ready for it. When we began inviting developers from across Africa to apply last year, we more than doubled the number of countries represented.

We’re already seeing the same effects in new regions, and we’re excited to welcome new talent into our growing community,” said Jeremy Johnson, CEO at Andela.

“The future of work is now, and this expansion continues our march towards bringing us all closer together.”

Andela’s global expansion provides clients with greater diversity, which McKinsey reported to be a major factor in delivering innovation and company growth.

Also, Andela clients will have more flexibility to build diverse teams across country borders, skill sets, time zones, and cultures.
The future of remote work is widespread, and Andela provides the crucial link to talent wherever it is found.

Dana Lawson, VP of Engineering at GitHub confirms, “As a business in the developer tool space, a lot of us are trying to enter those areas of the world (Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Africa) where the emergent developers are coming so we can better understand their needs. Having a local presence there with amazing talent is super valuable to building a global product.”

“We’ve seen exponential growth and interest from engineers from across Africa, who want to work with some of the world’s most exciting technology-focussed companies. Growing our network of talent from Africa, to include more markets, is a unique proposition and we continue to match talent with opportunity, beyond geographical boundaries.

Our globalization will further increase our footprint, creating more opportunities for Andela to showcase the visibility into the capabilities of engineers from the continent,” said Martin Chikilian, Head of Talent Operations at Andela.
