Our Culture

We're focused on building great things, but we also realise that we can have fun doing it. Our engineering team in Cape Town has their own dedicated workspace, and there are (hardly) no rules. No dress code + Flexible working hours + Democratic decision making + {(Clear Product Vision) x (Measurable Real World Impact)} = #LoveWhereYouWork

Our Hiring Process

We have a 3 stage interview process:

  1. Technical test which you have 7 days to complete. We will send you the test via email which you will need to do online. The test should take approximately 90 minutes to complete, the questions consist of topics from the job specification which we use on a daily basis.

  2. We'll invite you for an onsite interview with our CTO. and tech leads to show us what you're made of.

  3. Lastly, you'll meet some of the senior people in the business before we make an offer.

It sounds like a mouthful but it's actually quick and painless. The plus side is that you know you will be working with the best developers in their field. Best of luck! :)
