Summary

Who We Are:

Basalt is an award-winning software development company with over 20 years of
combined experience in the Financial Services, Health, and Telecommunications
industries.
We offer the most comprehensive suite of custom software development services,
ranging from rapid MVP development to custom re-engineering, testing, and UX design.

design and implement the future of our client's projects.
We hire strong communicators who can bridge the gap between business value and

problems more deeply.

To be Africa & Europe's most innovative and disruptive technology company. Talented
people are lining up to join Basalt, and the right clients or customers are fighting to be
part of our magic.

Our Core Values:

Basalt is a values-driven business. Simple. The way we treat our teammates, the way
we treat our clients and suppliers, the quality of work we deliver, the way we
communicate, the way we problem solve, even the way we think, everything we do or
say is rooted in our values. Our collective actions established our six simple yet
fundamentally profound values which are our North Star.

  1. Solutions orientated - We find a way or make one.
  2. No BS - We are all adults, and our attitude reflects that.
  3. On-time, every time - If we say we’ll deliver, it’s as good as done.
  4. Own our work - We are responsible and take pride in our work.
  5. Move fast - We are decisive and efficient.
  6. People before code - We are a family and look out for each other. Always

Our Hiring Process

We don't believe in long complicated processes and tests. We look for fit and compatibility on both sides. Skills are important but passion more so and that can't always be tested which is why we follow a more informal hiring process. But to get an idea, we would like to meet face to face first to get an idea if we like each other and get a better understanding of what you are looking for and for you to ask questions and learn more about us.

Next, we would like you to meet the team and see if you feel comfortable in the environment, this could mean inviting you to spend the day (if you can) and we could also use the opportunity to talk more about your projects and the work you would like to do.

And then if it all went well we would make you an offer.
