Following its acquisition by Microsoft, GitHub experienced unprecedented global growth. This drove a need to scale engineering so GitHub could meet increased demand in the Client Partnerships & Expert Services Division; however, GitHub relied on costly, slow agencies for global IT talent.

They looked to Andela for a more economical and agile solution. With access to Andela's diverse pool of digital talent from untapped regions, GitHub onboarded seven skilled engineers across various time zones, aligning with their dynamic expansion needs and providing more resources to their Client Partnerships & Expert Services Division.

This collaboration slashed GitHub's hiring timeframe from 19 weeks to just 10 days, halving the cost-to-hire. They experienced a cost-effective scale-up without compromising talent quality and bolstered GitHub's global operational capabilities.
