Why Work For Us

We're a lean, tight-knit engineering team, working on some large-scale very interesting challenges. Some interesting stats - on average we handle around 2,000 geospatial searches p/sec, 22,000 conversations p/minute and rebuild some view graphs 650p/sec. Our apps have been installed on 40 million+ devices and we currently have around 300 million photos on our origin. (Fun stat - Our CDN traffic is basically equivalent to the CINX traffic :p)
Our core engineering started in Cape Town and it remains our primary engineering hub although we have a hubs in Berlin, Prague and a few other cities as well.
As a 'startup' we were profitable in 2016, raising a $8.5 Series-A to pursue a more aggressive growth strategy to move from #2 to #1 globally.

Our Culture

We're a very open, diverse and inclusive team and looking for like-minded people. While we work hard (and try to be smart about it) we also believe in having a life outside of work. Hence this job posting so we can distribute some work better.

Our Engineering Processes

We're loosely modeled on Spotify's Objective Squads model. It's been working really well for us. We tried ISO/IEC 90003:2014 but no-one could pass the exams so we gave up.

Our Hiring Process

We try and keep it quick and simple, most decisions can be made relatively quickly so we don't waste your time and vice versa.
