About Andela:

Andela is a network of technology leaders dedicated to advancing human potential. We help companies build high-performing distributed engineering teams by investing in Africa’s most talented software developers. Based in NYC, SF, Lagos, Nairobi, and Kampala, Andela is catalyzing the growth of tech ecosystems across the African continent while solving the global technical talent shortage.


About the role:

Andela is looking to hire an in-house, full-cycle recruiter to join our NYC office. We’ve recently surpassed the exciting milestone of 1,000 employees worldwide, and plan to reach double that size by of 2020—the People department’s Recruiting team will drive much of that growth. Of course, we care about growth in both the quantity and quality of our employees, so our recruiters’ success is measured not just by their time-to-hire and headcount filled, but also by pass-through rate, EPIC values alignment, and other more qualitative metrics. In the US office, most of the hiring needs are for Andela’s demand-side teams—the Sales, Marketing, Data, Finance, and Product teams.

While you will work most heavily with hiring managers and interviewers in our US office, your colleagues on the Recruiting and greater People team are distributed globally across our offices in Lagos, Nairobi, and Kampala. This opportunity is ideal for recruiters in the tech and start-up space who want to level-up their international exposure and work at a mission-driven, fast-paced, for-profit business.

As a recruiter, you must obviously be highly empathetic, understand how to match talent to the most relevant opportunities, and assess candidates’ skills, weaknesses, and potential for growth. To succeed at Andela you must be able to thrive in a fast-paced environment, work closely with multiple stakeholders, and manage a high volume of open headcount at once.

  • Network and Referral Management: Identify opportunities to further develop and tap into current Andelans’ social and professional networks. Develop and coordinate events that draw potential talent to the Andela brand both online and in-person.
