What We Do
We solve business problems with technology and software. That means that we get to do a pretty wide array of cool stuff. Some of our cooler projects have been building visualisation dashboard for wind turbines, wall-sized facial recognition screens, drawing robots and more.
Why Work For Us?
BRAVE aims to be unique and we believe that starts with our culture. We are aiming to create a business where our team gets to work on projects that they are passionate about, that they have a work/life balance, that they are able to grow and learn continuously.
Our track record, when hiring staff consistently shows that we pay above market salaries to our BRAVEs, so you get to spend your cash on the things that matter most to you.
Leave (lots of it!)
We offer better-than-market leave packages to all staff, regardless of job title, so get ready to do some traveling/chilling/anything-you-want.
Get Paid to Study
We pay for your professional development and not only do we sponsor your studies, but we give you a bonus too if you complete your studies with distinction.
Our core hours are 10-3 with certain billable hour targets per skill-set, but generally BRAVE's work hours are flexible, and where possible, tailored to the specific needs of each team member.
Our offices are centrally located in Parkwood/Greenside East, nestled between the vibrant suburbs of Parkhurst and Greenside, a few minutes away from some of Jozi’s favourite shops and hottest eating spots. We work on awesome iMacs in a comfy environment, complete with wooden floors, solar power, a leafy garden, and a pool. Oh and we have a cat. He likes laps.
What To Expect
Our Hiring Process
As a small team, it is critical that you are a strong culture fit, so our hiring process is a little different to most. Our interviewing process usually takes place over three to four stages, but might differ depending on circumstances.
- Your first interview would typically be with the owners, an informal coffee at a mutually suitable coffee-shop.
- If that goes well, you would then meet for another coffee (we like coffee), with the management team.
- Lastly, you would meet the whole BRAVE team where you will get to ask them questions about working at BRAVE and they get to know a little more about you to ascertain whether you would be a good fit. This is a great opportunity for you to ascertain whether you feel BRAVE is the right home for you too.
You may be required to do some sort of coding/design/management test depending on your skills and experience level, but we'll let you know what to expect during the course of the interviewing process.
Your First 100 Days
Once you join BRAVE, you will be given access to all the necessary systems and equipment you might need, and will be partnered with an experienced BRAVE who will help you through your first few weeks. We have a great induction platform that allows you to get up to speed with how we operate, and for your first 100 days, you will have weekly catch-up sessions to ensure that you're getting all the support you need to feel comfortable and to do your best work.
