Why Work at Andela
Andela is a global team dedicated to the belief that brilliance is evenly distributed. We are problem solvers, team builders, techies (and non-techies!) who work together across borders to power today’s engineering teams and invest in tomorrow’s leaders. We bridge the divide between the U.S. and African tech sectors, and we couldn’t do it without amazing talent.
“What’s true for many women in a variety of fields, is that a lot of time when you enter a room of decision makers, many of the people around the table do not look like you. So when you can enter a room and share problems, concerns, ideas, and wins with people who can relate to you from not just a professional perspective, but also a gender one—that’s really special, and something that I love about both WISE and Andela.”
