Life in the DocFox Engineering Den

We asked Sabantu, one of our Engineers, about his experience at DocFox. Take a listen to what he had to say👂 At DocFox, we are building world-class software to make #moneylaundering impossible, and we are looking for the brightest minds to join us on this epic journey

Summary

What we do
Feenix is the development house behind the world-leading digital FICA and business account opening solution, DocFox.
Paper-based FICA and onboarding is outdated, slow, frustrating & makes you highly susceptible to fraud. In addition to this, it creates a poor customer experience which is one of the greatest causes of drop-off during the application process. DocFox changes all that - it provides clients of financial service providers the ability to sign up to products and open accounts instantly, at any time of the day, from anywhere in the world. DocFox automatically verifies client information and creates a rapid and easy experience.

Why Work For Us
We believe in changing the status quo for the better. We don’t write software for the sake of it; we code for a cause. We believe in giving the best people the space and tools to build the best products. Period.

We expect you to give as readily as you take from your co-workers. We want you to network, build the community and contribute to the shared pool of knowledge; both inside the company and out. Also, we don’t micro-manage. We just don’t have the time for it. We ask you to help us solve problems and trust you to get them done; and well.

Our Culture
Culture runs far deeper than ping pong tables and beer-on-tap come Friday . It’s about removing friction between us; putting egos aside and having the courage to let the best ideas win and giving each other the nourishment and feedback to thrive. We will give you exposure to global mentors who are leaders in industry in their own right and are focussed on one thing and one thing only: growth

To add to this, we live and breathe by two core principles: build useful, relevant technology which creates tangible value, and be the best partner our customer will ever have, helping them to grow their business, control their risk and provide exceptional experiences for their customers.

Our Story
DocFox/Feenix was conceived in 2013, and incorporated in 2014. Our founding team of engineers had a vision of using Software-as-a-Service to transform FICA from a speed bump to an enabler of new business. In 2016 we attracted Silicon Valley investment from some of the most prominent individuals in FinTech which propelled the company on a path to where it is now.

How We Like to Get Things Done
At DocFox/Feenix, the people behind DocFox/Feenix are equally as important as the technology. We dream big and are unreasonably ambitious, but we do so with humble confidence. We value helpfulness, transparency, and authenticity. We show up as ourselves, are always real, and have a lot of fun. We always give that little bit extra in the pursuit of personal and company growth.

Our Hiring Process
We'll first start of with a brief phone call so that we can learn a little more about you, and you a little more about us.
If it seems like a great match the next step is for you to complete a code challenge.
The challenge is not there to trick or test you but rather to learn a little more about how you problem solve. Should we like what we see, you'll be given the opportunity to talk us through the challenge. If all goes well the next step is to come through to DocFox for a series of technical pairings with both back-end and front-end developers as well as interviews with the members of our business and operational team.
We like to involve our whole team in the hiring process, so if everyone gives the thumbs up we'll send through the offer.
Please note: To ensure we practice safe protocols, Feenix and DocFox have mandated that every employee will need to be fully vaccinated in the business by February 2022.
