Andela, the tech company that provides training to software developers across Kenya and later hires them to work across big tech companies across the globe, has for the last two months been focusing their recruitment in Kenya outside the capital Nairobi.
In a campaign dubbed, Andela Tech-ing Over, the Kenyan wing of Andela is looking for their next cohort of recruits in counties outside Nairobi such as Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, and Nakuru. Andela Kenya says it has arranged a series of Andela Tech-ing Over events across different counties to widen its outreach further and attract more young talents.
Successful applicants into the program will get fulltime software developer roles. Over the course of this year, Andela Kenya has hired more than 100 developers, making the country home to over 300 employees since its inception in the country back in June 2015.
“In an increasingly digital world, we have a unique opportunity to meet both the needs of the global tech community, while equipping the continent with brilliant engineers who have experiences of working as part of world-class companies around the globe, producing cutting-edge products,” said Joshua Mwaniki, the Country Director of Andela Kenya.
If you are interested in applying for the Andela Kenya recruitment, you will first have to take an aptitude test, followed by a technical test, then a couple of interviews, and finally a simulated sprint. At the final sprint stage, you get to interact with product development before Andela confirms you are hired.
Once hired by Andela, you will join a full-time software development team, where you will get the chance to accelerate your skills. You will also be working for big tech companies like the Viacom and Master Card Labs among others. The working experience will be geared towards horning your skills into becoming a technology leader.
Andela boosts of over 500 developers across Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria. Next year, the company plans to spread to an additional two countries in Africa and to double its number of developers to 1,000.
