What we do
ChannelCenter is an aggregated B2B catalogue for technology that connects IT resellers with IT vendors and distributors. The platform provides online marketplaces, billing, quoting & ecommerce to self-service and transact.
The company was launched in 2017 with financial backing from one of South Africa’s most forward-thinking private equity companies, Rational Expectations (“RE”), the South African domiciled private equity investment holding company of the Le Roux family. Michiel Le Roux founded Capitec Bank, the third-largest bank in South Africa and in addition to their shareholding in Capitec Bank, RE has private equity investments in Africa, Switzerland, the UK and the Middle East.
Our founders saw the benefits of digitization and were inspired to create a platform that enables vendors, distributors, and resellers to transact seamlessly and instantly, to free up capacity and drive new revenue.
Our platform is unique in the breadth of product it enables distributors to take to market. It supports both hardware and software distribution, and on the software side covers ESD, MSP and cloud programmes. With a growing number of globally recognized vendors and distributors registering their availability on the platform, our platform users have access to some of the world’s most used and trusted products and services.
What motivates us is the opportunity to build a South African-grown, world-class organization. Our current market focus is on South Africa and key markets in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Our business model means that we are developing and perfecting a single product. We are not involved in client project or custom development in any way. We direct and drive the product vision and roadmap.
Our developers are responsible for working on the core platform, whilst adding new features and functionality on an ongoing basis and managing third-party vendor and ERP integration.
We aim to be the best in the world at what we do, and we actively focus on innovation and quality.
Our technology set
ChannelCenter is a young company, with ample growth opportunities.
Our developers will have the opportunity to gain company-sponsored AWS/Microsoft certifications. We believe in allowing employees to play to their strengths but actively enable rotation across the development teams and setting career goals to enable growth and stretch.
Senior developers will manage small employee teams and will be granted the opportunity to lead development direction accordingly.
We place a heavy emphasis on teamwork and learning within our organization, and are customer-centric. We value hard work and accountability, as well as attention to detail and quality. We encourage a culturally diverse workplace with a common set of values.
Our core development process
We adhere to an agile/SCRUM approach to software development, with weekly sprints and deployments. Our developers work in small, self-organizing teams which operate within an open and collaborative work environment.
We are looking for highly motivated team players who want to make a difference, and be part of building a unique, industry game-changing platform.
Our hiring process
