« on: Aug 03, 2016, 05:31 AM »
Job Title: Senior Software Developer

Company: Andela Nigeria

Job Type: Full Time  

Qualification: BA/BSc/HND  

Experience: 5 years

Location: Lagos, Nigeria

Job Field: ICT / Computer  


Andela is a global talent accelerator that produces world-class remote developers and connects them with top employers. Andela finds the brightest young people in Africa and gives them the training and mentorship needed to thrive as full-time, remote developers for companies around the world. The company is backed by investors including Steve Case, Omidyar Network, Founder Collective, Rothenberg Ventures, Learn Capital, Melo7 Tech Partners, Chris Hughes and Susa Ventures. Andela has offices in North America and Africa.


About the Technical Coordinator Position: – As Technical Coordinator, you will be responsible for helping Andela’s Software Engineers successfully engage remote clients. Distributed work environments are growing in popularity but the lack of physical proximity still brings unique operational challenges. As our engineers partner with teams spread around the world, across industries and across technology stacks, your role will be to help make the client and the remote team feel much closer.

No two days will ever be alike and variety will be the only constant. In the morning, you might find yourself helping engineers better understand the business value of their California team’s user stories; in the afternoon, you might virtually travel across the Atlantic in order to support another team of engineers as they strategically plan a data migration for their team in London.  


With your knowledge of business, technology, remote communication and agile project management, you will help make the distance between our engineers and their teams—-thousands of kilometers in most cases—-feel like a logistical afterthought.


About the Senior Software Developer Position: – As a Senior Software Developer, you will primarily work as a Lead Developer and Technical Team Lead for one of Andela’s off-shore clients. Our clients operate in a wide-range of industries, but their common thread is that they create mobile and/or web-based products that bring value to their customers through the use of technology.


As the senior member of your client’s Andela team, you will be responsible for managing the delivery of your work as well as any developers that work under you. Our core consulting model is embedded software developers and teams, so although you will be working off-shore, you will be working remotely alongside the client’s team as well as your own. Your day-to-day might include everything from participating in daily standups with your client to estimating the level of effort of work associated with your (and your team’s) tasks.

In addition to your client work, you will also serve as a mentor and technical resource to Andela developers outside of your team.

Key Responsibilities: – The specific responsibilities of the Senior Software Developer position include: – Interfacing with your client to understand their business, goals and visions for products being supported by an Andela Team – Performing high quality work that not only meets the need of the client, but surpasses it. – If you are managing a team: – Ensuring that our developers are able to understand the business context and value of their tasks, as well as how it impacts users. – Prioritizing the work that your team is responsible for to ensure that you’re always working on the highest value work that helps your clients meet their objectives. – Working with our engineers to decompose high level stories into smaller, specific tasks and provide high level design support to help them understand how to solve specific coding challenges. – Provide technical guidance and oversight to ensure that the work delivered is in accordance with the technical standards of your client. – Encouraging a collaborative team environment – Regularly reporting the status of your team both to your client as well as senior members of Andela’s Success Department


Qualifications & Characteristics – As the ideal candidate for this role you: – Are able to pass our Tech Skills Assessment – Have a four-year degree in Engineering, Computer Science or a related field from an accredited university. – Have at least 5 years of experience working in software development – Have built and deployed web applications using Ruby on Rails, Django or a JavaScript stack – Have built iOS or Android mobile apps – Have experience leading technical teams using Agile methodologies – Have experience working remotely as an effective member of a team – Have a vibrant personality and exceptional communication skills (English, verbal and written) – A strong desire to mentor other developers – Have the ability to build rapport and communicate with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds. – Have excellent interpersonal skills. – Have strong leadership skills. – Strongly motivated by our social mission of training 100 thousand young Africans in next 10 years.
