Summary

What we do:

JUMO uses behavioural data from mobile usage to create financial identities for SMME’s. Our customers can then access a world of choice where Banks compete to provide the best savings product or working capital to grow their business.

What you'll be building

In principle there is no ceiling to the tools and technologies we explore. In practice you're likely to work on a Rails codebase, Ruby/Go/Java microservices, various API serialization formats including JSON and protocol buffers, platforms such as Heroku and AWS, various queueing technologies, building dev & helper tools and generally taking an interest in helping your fellow techies solve challenging problems.

Development Process

Although engineering teams all follow agile practices--specifically for the purpose of making work visible and transparent--teams tend to experiment and settle on an approach that works for them. Technically you'll also find yourself reviewing code, creating pull requests and deploying said code. We don't have traditional release cycles since we have the ability to deploy to either staging or production environments at will.

Opportunities for learning and growth

Aside from working with some exceptionally smart people who never seem to get their fill of doing cool stuff, you get to choose the path you follow at JUMO. Our discuss-the-endpoint-and-we'll-help-you-get-there philosophy means that your career track is completely up to you.
