The Andela Fellowship is a four-year paid technical leadership program designed to shape you into an elite software developer. The program requires that you dedicate yourself to the broader Andela community and requires that you apply yourself and challenge yourself to constantly improve personally and professionally throughout the four years of the Fellowship. Through extensive learning and work experience with top global technology companies, you’ll master the professional and technical skills needed to become a technology leader, both on the African continent and around the world.
The application process is in 5 stages which are as follows:
Stage 1: Application and Aptitude Assessment
First, you’ll complete a free application, which lets us learn more about you. Once we receive your application, we’ll email you (within 2-weeks of your application) an online test that measures logical reasoning and personality fit.
Stage 2: Home Study
Then you’ll need to complete an introduction to software development self-study course focused on Python. You can find the downloadable version of this course here. During the course, you’ll complete a Proctor test that will evaluate your knowledge of the content you’ve learned. You will also be invited to a Slack Community called “Open Andela” to help guide and encourage you throughout the process.
Stage 3: In-Person Interviews
Based on performance on the Aptitude Assessment and Proctor test, we invite a select group of applicants to interview with Andela. If selected, you’ll receive an email 1 week prior to the interview stage, inviting you to a panel of interviews made up of staff members and fellows at an Andela Campus.
Stage 4: Two Week Boot camp
Successful applicants participate in a two-week Boot Camp at an Andela Campus led by our senior developers. The two weeks comprise of one week of home based self learning and one week of product development. You’ll be expected to learn independently as well as work on a team to deliver a final project. We’re looking for work ethic, passion, and teamwork.
Stage 5: Acceptance
The highest performing participants are accepted into Andela’s four-year Technical Leadership Program.
