Summary

About us
We are the leading security communications network manufacturer in South Africa. We manufacture the hardware and implement systems (software, networks, etc.) to allow the latest features to reach our users.

Why work at Amecor
Working for a smaller development team means you gain broader experiences and learn on the fly - you are not stuck as a specific type of developer. This allows you to get that sense of ownership and accomplishment. We believe this experience will benefit our employees for the rest of their lives. We are open to new ideas and pursue actual R&D.

Our culture
Within our development team, one has to be self-disciplined and love programming, electronics and tech. Although we try to assist each other, we believe self-learning and exploration are the best methods to advance. We are outcome-driven, and it could be relatively relaxed or very strenuous, depending on your personality.

Our development process
We do not subscribe to models such as AGILE due to the size of our team. Based on workloads - projects are assigned to the applicable person in the pool with most of the required skill sets. Most projects will be individual-based, from DB design to front-end websites, android apps, etc.

Location
Our head office is in Johannesburg, with a regional branch in Cape Town. Depending on the role, most positions are hybrid working.

Interview process
We typically conduct 2 to 3 interviews.

The first step is a short coding challenge.

Next is a follow-up interview with the head of development which is more targeted at discovering one another and seeing if we are the right fit for each other.

Should this go well, we will arrange another interview meeting with the development team.

After the interview, we will compile a shortlist and start negotiations with our possible new team members.

Perks
We have a varied pension scheme, Loss of income, Funeral plan, Life and school cover as benefits.
We are not overly strict on working times.
Leave times are usually flexible with only the last few days of the year being compulsory.
