Summary

What we do

MasterStart is a leading EdTech company based in Cape Town, South Africa. Our diverse team includes eCommerce, learning and technology experts focused on online education in Africa.

We offer Academic Institutions the opportunity to build African leaders through meaningful online learning experiences by providing access to University expertise.

Our current offering of online short courses in executive education are built in collaboration with University of Stellenbosch Business School Executive Development. Through this partnership, we support USB-ED in its mandate to provide meaningful learning experiences for Africa’s leaders and give rise to positive change across the African continent.

Why Work For Us

We're a startup on steroids - a young, dynamic team of thought-leaders who want to shake up the online education space. We push boundaries, challenge ourselves, obsess over what we do and how we deliver it. We move fast (and occasionally break things), but that's all part of our development process and what makes us unique.

Our Engineering Processes

The engineering team maintains multiple applications/services in a microservices architecture hosted on Kubernetes in Google Container Engine (GKE). The core applications we work on are the client-facing MasterStart website, online learning platform, CRM & administrative tooling, a market / industry analysis platform and the MasterStart blog.

We are open-minded and believe in using the right tool for the job; although the majority of our code base is written in PHP (Laravel Framework), Python and NodeJS. We build for failure and adopt an approach of designing for high availability, running technologies such as MySQL master/read replicas, RabbitMQ, Memcached and Redis. We practise continuous integration, from Slack Deploy -> Jenkins -> GitHub -> Rolling Kubernetes Deployments.
