Summary

What we do

We build products for mobile operators and device manufacturers throughout Africa. Our products range from gaming to dating, from sport to cultural and religious services that work across USSD, SMS, Mobile Web and Apps.

Why Work For Us

  • Do Great Work - We give people an opportunity to do great work and believe in investing in talent. We want people to be proud of their hard work.

  • Proper Scale - We have numerous products and systems that service tens of millions of people, and they are only getting bigger.

  • Family Like Support - There is no challenge or problem to complex for our collective talent. If you are stuck, someone can and will help you. When things go wrong, everyone is there to assist until things are working again.

Our Culture

We care deeply about our culture. At first we curated and managed things carefully, however these days it has become a self governing organism that just keeps getting better and better. Everyone in the team plays their own unique role in shaping the company culture.

In life, people spend a lot of time working. The office environment becomes a second home and the team you work with becomes a second family. We care for and support each other no matter what. We work hard and we play hard.

The leadership of our business is run by developers and so there are no suits dictating how things should be run. Finally there is a place that understands the developers' plight - and it doesn't exist here.

Our Engineering Processes

It differs per product and per team. Each have their own way to best manage what needs to be delivered. However, let's throw in some buzz words here to fill the slot.

We love agile, scrum, kanban. We definitely believe in MVP and design / test driven development.

We use JIRA, Confluence and Slack for managing projects and internal comms. We have built a number of cool Slack bots to keep feedback to us and keep things humming along.

Our Hiring Process

It's quite casual. Come in for an interview, let's have a grown-up conversation about who we are, who you are, and whether or not we can do some amazing work together. If we both feel that we are a match then we will make an offer and you're in.

We have a proper induction process for new team members and we have started running a number of weekly workshops to up-skill the team in a number of areas and languages. We definitely want to help everyone in the team be their absolute best.
