Summary

What we do

Afrihost provides internet services to the country. We specialise in shared hosting, dedicated/cloud hosting, DSL/Mobile/Fibre data.

Why Work For Us

We are a leader in the industry, and always push the envelope of technology and innovation to drive our company forward. But we don't just do it for profit - we do it to have fun and learn awesome things as well. A defining part of our teams are to grow and learn how to do things that in the past seemed impossible.

Our Culture

We constantly try to learn new things and have a happy and friendly team. Even though we've grown in numbers since the company was founded more than a decade ago - we still try to keep the "start-up mentality".

Our Engineering Processes

We trust our developers with the entire stack of what is needed to achieve the task at hand. This means they have full access to the necessary parts of the system (dev side as well as production) to get done what needs to get done in the fastest manner possible (while naturally balancing that with security and safety). Each developer has a sense of autonomy - which we feel is core to what we do. It's nice to be a developer - it's great to be a developer who also get trusted to have her/his say about the business direction.

Our Hiring Process

After initial screening - we'd request a small questionnaire to be filled out. This enables us to ascertain certain technology, cultural and personality traits we are looking for.
Once that is done, an interview may be granted (either online or in person - preferably off course in person).
Finally - if no other information or interviews are required - we make an offer and you're in!
