Apply to be a World Class Developer in the Andela Fellowship

Written by Elvis Boniface

Do you dream of changing the world with software?

Do you have a passion for technology? Do you have a passion for improving the lives of your fellow citizens? Of helping to improve the lives of all Africans? Consider applying to the Andela Fellowship, a 4-year, paid opportunity to master the craft of professional software development while working for leading technology companies around the globe. Graduates are expected to be tomorrow’s most successful leaders both on the continent and around the world.

Applicants that make it through our screening process are invited to participate in a free, two-week-long Boot Camp led by senior developers hailing from some of the world’s top engineering schools. It is one of the most rigorous training experiences in the world and you will learn fundamentals of programming. Impress us during your Boot Camp experience, and you will be invited to become an Andela Fellow. If you accept, you will begin our paid software developer training program and receive at least 1000 hours of hands-on training in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and other web and mobile software development skills.

Andela is a new kind of academic experience. It is somewhat like a university, except instead of paying tuition, you earn a healthy income and benefits. Once you are done with basic training and ready to advance, usually within 6 months, we place you as a remote member of a team with one of our partner companies around the globe. You will get to apply your new knowledge to real work while Andela provides you with ongoing professional development and coaching to ensure that you evolve with the industry and graduate with maximum potential for long term success.

Simply put, the Andela Fellowship is an unparalleled opportunity. But do not take our word for it. “I’ve been in school for 24 years,” says Solomon, an Andela Fellow, about our Boot Camp, “…but this was the most valuable and interactive two weeks of my life!”
