Summary

Welcome to Netgen

With over 20 years of experience, Netgen is a leading developer of custom software and mobile applications. Our primary development languages are C# using .Net and MVC. We are proud to have offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, where our dynamic team services clients both in South Africa and abroad.

Why Netgen?

  • Innovative Environment: We embrace the latest technologies for each new client, ensuring that our developers are constantly exposed to cutting-edge tools and practices.
  • Young and Vibrant Team: Our team of managers and developers boasts an average age of under 28 years, fostering a fresh and energetic workplace culture.
  • Dedicated Support: Our dedicated tech team handles all infrastructure concerns, allowing our developers to focus on what they do best – creating exceptional software.

Join Our Team

We are always on the lookout for new talent and welcome interns annually, primarily from Varsity College. If you are a college graduate eager to expand your knowledge, we'd love to chat with you.

Our Hiring Process

We understand your time is valuable, so we've streamlined our hiring process into two stages:

  • Initial Interview: A 20-minute interview conducted via Teams to assess your skills and cultural fit. We will also discuss salary and address any preliminary concerns.
  • Technical Assessment: If the first interview goes well, you will be invited to a second stage involving a short coding and database test lasting around 60 minutes. This test is designed to evaluate how you tackle challenges rather than the final outcome.

Work Flexibility

We value flexibility and offer a mostly remote working environment with occasional in-office days:

  • Cape Town: 1 day per week in the office.
  • Johannesburg: 2 days per week in the office.

If you're passionate about technology and looking to work in an innovative, supportive, and dynamic environment, Netgen might be the perfect place for you. Come join us and be a part of our exciting journey!
