Andela

Organization Overview

Andela was founded by a Princeton alumn, and is devoted to Building the next generation of tech leaders in Africa. In the next ten years, there will be 1.3M software development jobs created and only 400,000 domestic computer science graduates to fill them. Africa, meanwhile, is home to the largest untapped talent pool and seven of the 10 fastest growing internet populations in the world. Founded in 2014, Andela aims to build a network of technology leaders on the African continent and bridge the divide between the U.S and African tech sectors. Leveraging a proven, data-driven approach, we build high-performing engineering teams with Africa’s top developers to help companies overcome the tech talent shortage and build better products, faster.
 
Intern Responsibilities:

1. Public Private Partnerships, Strategy Team Intern
Public private partnership ecosystem mapping for the tech sector in Ghana and South Africa. Andela’s decision-making framework for entering new countries in Africa so far has been guided by supply-side criteria, i.e. what factors need to exist to recruit and grow a top-level pool of talent? Considerations have included demographics, population, youth unemployment, investment in infrastructure, quality of tertiary education, and ease of doing business. To effectively engage governments and non-governmental stakeholders as well as private sector entities including foundations, Andela will require a mapping of the partnership ecosystem in education attainment, youth employment and ICT skill development in Ghana and South Africa drawing on Andela’s experience in Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda.

The IIP intern will work on the Update the baseline survey created for the Distributed Learning Community (DLC). The Distributed Learning Community is a network of people across Africa dedicated to learning how to develop technology to solve humanity’s problems. Through the Distributed Learning Community, or DLC, Andela invests in communities of talented technologists across the African continent. Our goal is to provide an ever-growing population of aspiring technologists with the resources and environments they need to become world-class problem solvers. Over the past year, we’ve partnered with Google, Udacity, Pluralsight and others to launch the initiatives that collectively represent Andela’s Distributed Learning Community: Android Learning Community (ALC): In partnership with Google and Udacity, we’ve designed a program to identify and certify Android developers across Africa as globally competitive (up to Google standards) by way of a Udacity nano-degree. Andela Open Slack: Andela launched an open Slack community for aspiring technologists to share knowledge and connect with fellow developers across the continent. There are currently 8,500 African technologists actively engaged who have shared over 500,000 messages and more than 1,000 different files. Open Pluralsight: Andela has partnered with Pluralsight to provide 400 learners per month with a full-access subscription to all of Pluralsight’s content, supported by Andela-specific playlists and curricula. TeenCode Africa: Launched in March 2016, TeenCode helps high schools across Africa include programming and computer science in their curriculum. Over 60 Andela developers serve as mentors to hundreds of high school students, hosting over 70 events in dozens of schools in cities across Nigeria and Kenya in just the past 4 months.
 
Earlier in FY 2017, a baseline survey was designed and rolled out to determine the relationship between the DLC and employment outcomes. The IIP intern will work with the various teams to create a system to update this survey on a regular basis – ideally, quarterly. The current survey requires an update by the end of August 2017. This will require interaction the Talent team in Lagos.
