Celestine made this announcement in a blog post recently aptly titled “Chapter Two: This is Andela.” According to him, “Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life, a new opportunity, a fresh start. Today, I become an Andelan. I’m excited about the future, I can’t wait to see what it brings.”
Andela connects companies with top technical talent. They identify high-potential developers on the African continent, shape them into world-class technical leaders, and pair them with companies as full-time, distributed team members. Their laudable work in helping to develop young talents has not gone unnoticed as the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative recently pumped in $24 million to expand and continue their work.
Celestine is also a lead maintainer and developer at NSEFinance, an experimental API for the Nigerian Stock Exchange. He is the convener of The Lagos GitHub meetup and the founding manager of Calabar Google Developer Group.
Prior to Konga, Celestine worked at a law firm where he lead the development of an electronic law management system.
