Andela, the global talent network that helps companies build remote engineering teams, has announced that it is expanding into new regions. As part of this newly announced global expansion, Andela will allow software engineering applications from South America.

According to Andela, applications from qualified engineers residing outside of Africa increased by more than 750% in the past six months. In March 2021 alone, the company reports that more than 30% of its inbound engineer applications came from outside of Africa.

β€œAndela’s mission is to connect brilliance with opportunity. This expansion has always been part of our long term roadmap, and we're excited that the world is ready for it. When we began inviting developers from across Africa to apply last year, we more than doubled the number of countries represented. We're already seeing the same effects in new regions, and we’re excited to welcome new talent into our growing community,” said Jeremy Johnson, CEO at Andela.

Andela’s global expansion provides clients with greater diversity, which McKinsey reported to be a major factor in delivering innovation and company growth. Andela clients will have more flexibility to build diverse teams across country borders, skill sets, time zones, and cultures. The future of remote work is global, and Andela provides a vital link to talent wherever it is found.

β€œThe future of work is now, and this expansion continues our march towards bringing us all closer together,” said Johnson.
