Our Digital people are split between Cape Town and Joburg (with the Cape Town office having the nicer setup, of course).

Our Engineering Processes

We prefer to have UX designers following Design Thinking and Lean Startup methods to lead customer-first MVP-style designs. When this isn't possible (e.g. large API integration work) we'll do an upfront technical investigation. In both cases, a product backlog will be created with user stories, and then we'll mostly follow Scrum processes to manage the work. However, this is some scope to use limited WIP pull systems optimised for flow to manage workflow - it depends on who you're working with.

We do everything from one developer working on a website to teams of 12 working in continuous integration environments. Everything is in git (using the git flow branching model, but moving towards trunk-based development). In our more mature projects we're using pair programming, pull requests and code reviews (with integrated coding standards tooling) and sometimes even Test-Driven Development (this is a new approach for us which is gaining some traction). In our largest current project we've aimed for 60% unit test coverage (so knowing what a pure function is will help you).

We're moving towards more automation over our entire DevOps process (including Docker for environment configuration management) as well as functional end-to-end testing.

We mostly stick to a 40 hour work week with overtime discouraged, but that also depends on the project (and the occasional deadline). We also have regular knowledge sharing sessions with the team, as well as retrospectives.

Our Hiring Process

We'll start with an hour-long face-to-face interview where you'll meet some of our team and we'll talk about you - your experience and skills, your experience of working in teams, what you're looking for, why you're looking, and what direction you'd like to grow in. If it seems like we might work well together, we'll schedule an hour-long pairing session where you'll pair program with one of our senior developers on an actual project problem (if you're a UX designer, we'll send you an interesting design problem instead).

Don't be nervous! We'll give you all the context you'll need for the problem. We don't care if you can't remember the correct function to call to remove an object out of an array in javascript - that's easily google-able on Stack Overflow in 10 seconds (and we encourage that because we do it all the time). We're more interested in your thinking and communication: how do you approach a problem? How do you decide what solution to go with? What don't you know? Would you rather write something terse and smart or longer and simpler? Why?

This session usually starts with some code review of a recently completed pull request on the project. Tell us what you see, what's done well, what you might do differently, and anything else which comes to mind.

We're looking for thoughtful developers who are able to problem solve and communicate that problem solving on a whiteboard, then express that solution in code.

Then, if things proceed, we involve HR to have the salary conversation with you. Once agreed, there's a lot of forms to be filled in (sorry - it's Deloitte) and then an onboarding process where you'll join the team.
