The Andela Sales Team is growing quickly and needs a passionate, data-driven Sales Development Manager to lead a pod of SDRs. As manager, you'll help the team find opportunities for Andela developers to work with high-growth software companies around the world, and specialize in finding and engaging high-quality prospects over phone, voicemail, and email.

Prospecting and outreach at Andela are not conventional for the tech industry we're marketing a technical hiring solution (a full-time, remote developer) and asking companies to think differently about how they hire, manage, and evaluate talent. To grow a business like this requires that the SD team employ both a consultative sales strategy as well as data-driven approach to achieving their outbound quota.

We'd love to work with someone who is passionate about both human transformation and challenging industry norms. We know we need someone who understands the realities of a growth company and can be the type of leader who helps employees who have not seen change at this scale. We're a learning organization at heart, so please be the type of person who is generous with their knowledge and considers him or herself to be a lifelong learner.

Andela is a network of technology leaders dedicated to advancing human potential. We help companies build high-performing distributed engineering teams by investing in Africa's most talented software developers. Based in Austin, NYC, SF, Lagos, Nairobi, and Kampala, Andela is catalyzing the growth of tech ecosystems across the African continent while solving the global technical talent shortage.
