Andela Acquires Qualified, The Technical Skills Assessment Platform

Andela, the network for remote technical talent, has acquired Qualified, the technical skills assessment platform to identify, qualify, and certify top engineers.

Andela’s global talent community will also expand with the addition of more than 3.6M engineering users via Codewars, an online community powered by Qualified that enables technical talent to compete and improve their practical coding skills in gamified challenges.

“With the Qualified acquisition, Andela expands and accelerates our ability to source and expertly assess talent,” said Jeremy Johnson, founder and CEO of Andela. “Labor marketplaces are constrained by inefficiencies between supply, demand and quality —Qualified allows us to address those inefficiencies by providing the certified right talent at the right time. Companies will continue to trust that talent sourced through Andela has the needed skills regardless of where they live and work.”

Qualified is built with the goal of providing a developer-friendly way to effectively assess technical skills. Keeping the developer experience as our focus, we’ve created a format that harnesses real-world tasks and uses integrated testing frameworks for a seamless coding experience. These ideals have built an enterprise-grade and educational-quality platform, with developer appeal.

Qualified also runs the developer community Codewars where over a million developers form a trusted basis for Qualified’s code assessments. Qualified evaluates a prospective developer’s code and programming aptitude, giving a clear 0-100 score on their ability. This way users can focus on assessing the soft skills, like communication, motivation and drive.
