A LITTLE ABOUT US
We are Kin, an early stage, funded startup from the founders of 20twenty bank and 22seven based in Cape Town.
We believe we can change the world by helping people live better lives, and by building a team that creates better work lives for each other.
We are solving “collaborative money”; where people use money together. And we're looking for people who also believe that things are better together to join our team.
Join our team, and be a part of shaping this.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
We are creating an environment and team where we all get a deep sense of joy from what we do - we want to live our lives on purpose, with purpose.
We are obsessive about creating unusually good customer experiences. We listen. We believe that good quality software enables and drives rapid delivery of these experiences. We value automation, with extensive automated tests, all our infrastructure defined and provisioned through code, and continuous delivery.
However, in the end it’s all about people: great people and great teams building great experiences for great customers.
We're based in the East City Precinct in Cape Town - our offices are above Truth Coffee on Buitenkant Street. We've got an open-plan, collaborative, creative environment.
