Summary

The Vision

Be the best. Set the bar. Keep moving the bar higher and higher.

We are a small nimble team that is looking to take on the big players and deliver a truly awesome platform. We're not just wanting to get by - we plan to shine, and watch others in the industry follow our lead, for the better of all investors, everywhere.

We're serious about what we do - it's hard work striving to be the best. But we have fun while we do it, and want to get to a place where we can create the space and opportunity for new ideas and industry-disrupting innovations!


Who We Are

Prescient is a multinational business whose operations span sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and Asia.
Our development team oversees development for the Prescient Group's online investor and broker portals:

Prescient Security
Prescient Securities is a premium rated BEE stockbroking firm primarily focused on the institutional market.

Prescient Life
Prescient Life is a registered long-term insurer and an approved retirement benefits administrator. Prescient Life issues investment-linked policies to institutional and retail clients and administer the Prescient Retirement Funds.

Both teams focus on servicing thousands of users. Providing tools that allow investors and brokers to choose the best investment options, invest easily, and see daily performance and holdings across their entire portfolio.


Where You Come In

We're looking for the ambitious, determined and intentional developers that want nothing less than to be the best, and work with people that want the same. We're looking for talented people that can help us get to where we want to be. We're building something. We're building something that people will wish they had joined when they had the chance. We're building something that will change the way the world works.

We're not looking to build an army of developers and business analysts and project managers and senior managers and middle managers and junior managers and manager managers... Small, expert teams can do more. We want to find and train experts. Ninjas. Legends. Heroes.


Getting On Board

Knowledge of the financial industry is not a requirement but helps you get running quickly. It is an important part of the training, and through working here you will learn about managing your own wealth and future.

Our design processes are ever-developing. Industry best practice is the goal, and we want to be regarded as leaders in how to do things right, how to do them well, and how to know that what we do will stand the test of the big wide world of users.

Each team's interview process can vary based on your background and experience, but would typically follow:

Prescient Security

A quick informal chat or call with the team lead, this will be followed by a technical interview or skills test with a senior developer or consultant and the team lead and final interview and fit check with the rest of the development team, the team leads and potentially senior management.

Prescient Life

A set of take home problems and 2-3 rounds of interviews with the rest of the development team, the team leads and potentially senior management.
