Global talent accelerator Andela, which trains talented young Africans and connects them with global employers, has begun accepting applications for its Fellowship, an intensive paid three-month immersion training programme.
The company, which aims at producing world-class remote developers, would help applicants, mostly graduates, to master the craft of professional software development while working for leading technology companies around the globes.
After the three months training, Andela fellows will be opportune to work on client projects with top technology companies, and also be eligible for continued training and employment with Andela over a period of four years.
On completion of the four-year programme, Andela Fellows would be expected to start technology companies, work directly with client companies as employees or continue to help train more competent software engineers at Andela.
Andela, which has offices in the United States (US) and Nigeria, is backed by investors including Steve Case, Omidyar Network, Founder Collective, Rothenberg Ventures, Learn Capital, Melo7 Tech Partners, Chris Hughes and Susa Ventures.
