WHO ARE WE?
We are first and foremost a financial service company, but we also see ourselves as leading technologists.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We build software solutions that make our clients’ and our own lives easier.
WHAT TECH DO WE USE?
Our environment consists of a diverse range of open and closed source technologies. Whether it's open source or commercial, we will evaluate all of the options available to us and choose the best tool for the job at hand.
Our backend micro-services are built using Scala, leveraging the stability and performance of the battle hardened JVM. We use Node for our public facing gateways, and on the client use a React-Redux stack to build out a suite of performant single page applications.
Our backend architecture consists primarily of RESTful APIs, built and deployed on an elastic containerized infrastructure supported and managed in house through Kubernetes.
We are looking for smart, passionate people, whether you are a backend or frontend specialist, or a full stack developer.
WHAT DOES OUR INTERVIEW PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
Our interview process is role dependent, but all of them take some time - on average two weeks from engagement to offer (this also depends on how quickly you respond to requests)
The typical interview process for a developer is:
- Telephonic interview (30 minutes)
- Coding assignment (3 hours) - at home in your own time
- Technical face to face interview (1 hour ) and soft skills face to face interview (1 hour )
- Psychometric tests (3 hours) - Completed online in your own time
- Credit and Criminal checks
The total time is approximately 8 hours and 30 minutes. We realise this is quite a commitment, but we believe that each interaction also allows you to decide whether or not Allan Gray is the right place for you. You are also able to speed up or relax your process as best suits you. Candidates can spend a week in the process before getting an official offer, or a month. The choice is yours!
