What we do

Making South Africa Africa's hub of Disruption.

Disraptor's vision is to do just that. We want to achieve this by making technology affordable and accessible. We believe that every business, whether a startup or corporate, is largely affected by digital technology, and success in a digital world gets more and more complex. That's where we step in.

Our blend of strong business and technical acumen allows us to provide holistic, end-to-end services to drive innovation, business growth and success through digital enablement.

As a tech startup directly funded by AWS, Disraptor are at the forefront of data-driven innovation. Specializing in comprehensive Cloud Infrastructure, DevOps and AI/ML/GenAI, we empower businesses to harness the full potential of their data. Disraptor’s mission for 2024 is to productise services out of every client project undertaken. We’ve built some pretty cool products and are really looking to our team to expand on this.

Why the name Disraptor?
The name Disraptor is an amalgamation of the words disrupt and Velociraptor.
Disrupting is our modus operandi – questioning the status quo, disrupting legacy thought processes, continuously evolving and innovating.
Taking on a Velociraptor’s qualities – They are fast, agile, work in groups and quick thinkers

Our Culture

We have a very diverse and inclusive culture at Disraptor, with a strong focus on employee well-being, but also a critical focus on delivery! We welcome engineers from all walks of life, and find that our diversity brings forth so many unique ideas on how we can be better at what we do, and who we are. Other than being super smart engineers, we have with us a spiritual healer, a DJ, a photographer, a chairperson of the township LGBTQI+ community, a music producer, professional gamers, professional chef's, nature and outdoor content creation enthusiasts, professional athletes, a boxer, a model and an MTN app of the year finalist (from their pet project!). The list goes on and we have so much of fun whilst working hard.
