Summary

What we do

🚀We create tech solutions that empower socially and environmentally conscious businesses.

🌱Every great idea starts with a real-world problem. Ours was fairly simple - there are a ton of creative, impactful, purpose-driven ideas and projects out there, but a lack of understanding of how to truly use tech to their advantage. We help fellow founders achieve their vision with an exceptional technical team.

Why Work For Us

🌈We started Brave Orbit as an alternative space to the usual tech scene. We want to help socially and environmentally conscious businesses bring their vision to life, using tech.

🌍We're a remote first software company that was started by software developers who care about the type of work we dedicate our time to. Working with us is an opportunity to change the world and get to use the shiniest tech to do it.

🦾Working in a startup that's growing rapidly means getting to have a greater impact in the team. We're looking for curious and driven individuals who are entrepreneurial. There's so much more to building software than just writing code. We favour leaders who can take ideas and run with them.

🧑🏽‍🔧We're working with some exceptional medical tech companies, building apps in Flutter. We're also actively building SAAS platform startups and have a project that requires machine learning (NLP) skills.

Our Culture

⚡️We're not corporate and we only accept interesting impact oriented work.

🥙We have weekly lunch sessions where we discuss tech and startup topics.

😸We're supportive of fellow founders and love supporting staff with exceptional ideas.

👾We're mostly senior engineers as we don't really have capacity at the moment to take on too much training.

👨🏼‍💻We use Notion as our knowledge base, Slack for day to day ops and Google meet to chat to one another.

🐍The founder of Brave Orbit is an active part of making PyConZA happen, we care about tech communities.

Our Engineering Processes

🤖When you get started with us we'll assign you a project. We'll have a weekly sprint meeting to discuss the tasks. When you're ready you'll write the code and another member will review it. We use CI/CD to deploy that onto staging if all the tests pass, once people are happy we'll merge it into master and it'll auto-deploy to production. We use Gitlab and Github for hosting repos. We make use of Google Cloud Platform and Heroku for hosting.

Our Hiring Process

😌You'll meet the main crew, we'll see if you know your stuff and you can evaluate whether you like us.
We'll give you a technical assessment and see what you come up with. If the engineers vetting your interview and assessment are happy, we'll have one final culture fit interview. If all goes smoothly we'll make you an offer.
