about us

Fundamental Software was founded in Cape Town in 2003 and has grown to become South Africa’s leading provider of Investment Management Software. Our clients include some of Africa’s most successful Fund Management, Multi-Management, Unit Trust, Pension Fund, Hedge Fund, Wealth Management and Administration Service Provider Companies. Clients range from large institutions such as Allan Gray, Standard Bank and Sanlam through to niche managers with a combined assets under management in excess of R1.5 trillion managed on our software. We're proudly South African and enjoy competing with large global competitors. We're looking for developers who have an interest in financial markets and the associated complexities and challenges. We are unique in providing an integrated end-to-end (Front-to-Back) Investment Management solution and pride ourselves on providing quality software and services and being highly responsive to the changing needs of our clients.

our development process

We service a precision industry and rely heavily on automated regression testing to mitigate risk of changes in the code base. We use continuous integration with the primary development regression tools being Fitnesse and to a lesser extent NUnit. We also undertake technical performance benchmarking. Outside the dev team, we run functional end-to-end suites (in-house tool) and regression test the UI using appium. We also have a dedicated QA team for manual testing. We use Kanban and have daily standups.

people and culture

We have a great team of people who are respected in the industry for our collective knowledge and experience. We are passionate about providing world class solutions and are committed to providing consistently exceptional client service.

We have a low staff turnover and are looking for people who want to be here for the long haul and make a meaningful contribution to improving and growing our business. If you enjoy finance and have an aptitude for subjects like accounting and maths then Fundamental could be the right place for you. With about 35 people in the company, everyone makes a difference. We're looking for motivated self-starters with a can-do attitude. Our culture is delivery and quality driven and we don't like to micro-manage but will always be there to guide when needed. We take our work seriously but also remember to have fun.

We have ambitious growth plans and are looking for like-minded people who want to share this exciting journey and contribute to our future success.

If you think this sounds like a match, we'd like to meet you.
