Africa-focused Andela cuts 400 staff as it confirms $50M in revenue

Africa-focused tech talent accelerator Andela will cut 400 junior engineers across Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria, CEO Jeremy Johnson told TechCrunch. On the staff cuts, "they are due to market demand for more senior engineering talent," Andela said in a company release. For those who may not know Andela's business, the startup's client-base is comprised of more than 200 companies around the world that pay for the African developers Andela selects and trains to work on projects.
