Andela Kenya Fellow Cohort X – Paid Technical Leadership Program 2016 for Kenyans

Dream of using technology to change the world? Join the Andela Kenya movement and help ensure that while the digital revolution may have begun in Silicon Valley, its future will be written in Lagos, Nairobi, and cities across Africa.

Andela Kenya is a four-year, paid Technical Leadership Program designed to shape you into an elite software developer. Through your training and work with top global technology companies, you’ll master the professional and technical skills needed to become a technology leader, both on the continent and around the world.

The Andela Fellowship Application Process
All applicants need to go through the Home Study curriculum to understand the very basics of software development. Applicants that read through our Home Study curriculum thoroughly have a better chance of getting into the Andela Fellowship than those who do not. So take your time to go through our Home Study Curriculum even if you have not made up your mind about applying.


Stage 1: Application and Aptitude Assessment
First you’ll complete a free application so we can learn more about you. Once we receive your application, we’ll email you an online test that measures logical reasoning and personality fit. (You’ll receive an email with next steps within 2 days of applying).

Stage 2: Home Study
Then you’ll need to complete an introduction to software development self-study course focused on Python. 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
If selected you’ll be invited to a panel of interviews made up of staff members and fellows at an Andela campus. (You’ll receive an email 1 week prior to the interview stage).

Stage 4: Two Week Bootcamp
Successful applicants participate in a two-week, full-time bootcamp at an Andela campus led by senior developers. 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.


The highest performing participants are accepted into Andela’s four-year Technical Leadership Program.
