Summary

What we do

PriceCheck is Africa’s largest shopping comparison, product discovery and service comparison platform.

We have millions of monthly users browsing and buying products listed on PriceCheck and as such we operate at considerable scale. This allows us the opportunity to build advanced services that leverage the latest technology.

We’re growing our services around the continent and are looking to expand our team to build new technology for a period of strong growth.

Why Work For Us

Based in beautiful Cape Town, PriceCheck has been around for a decade and is the leader in eCommerce product search and discovery.

If you are less experienced, why not join us to have the opportunity to learn and be mentored by some of the best engineers in the business?

For experienced engineers we offer the opportunity to stretch your "legs" at scale and have the chance to gain first hand knowledge on a high traffic platform.

We know search and personalisation, and take great pride in our efforts, you will have the unparalleled privilege to learn from the best in our search team and discover a whole new suite of technologies that you have possibly not been exposed to before.

Our Culture

We like to build clever and quality products, fast. We have a young and vibrant team - that's not a cliche - that understands these objectives and are working towards our common goal to be the central point of e-commerce on this continent.

We work hard, and play even harder. We love having fun together, hanging out playing some table tennis, having some afternoon beers and squeezing the last drop of joy out of every moment.

Oh, and there is zero dress code. Come in your slops and shorts!

Our Engineering Processes

We follow our own adapted Agile process loosely, we don't believe in many meetings and useless failed planning sessions. No, we just want to get things done, and plan enough to get there! We don't proclaim to have the best and most efficient processes, but it works for us and we are constantly iterating improvements.

We believe in DevOps, you both build the product and look after it.

We do not believe in micro-management and tons of management layers, you are the expert and know what is best.

Our Hiring Process

It all begins with a short phone call. If we like what we hear we will send a short technical assessment, and then diarise a follow up face-to-face meeting.

When you say you are a great coder we believe you, but its all about team fit for us, and we really want to make sure we pin-point where you fit into our team and our culture.
