Summary

What we do

Rhino Africa is Africa’s leading online travel company. From our offices in Cape Town, we promote safari and wildlife destinations across Africa. We share an incredible passion for the world of travel and everything digital, and we are excited to share our passion with you.

Our culture

Rhino Africa operates at the forefront of travel and technology. All our open positions are based at our HQ in Cape Town - South Africa’s darling city. While English is our company language, we operate in English, German, French, Spanish, and Portuguese in order to serve over 30 markets worldwide. We embrace cultural and ethnic diversity, and are proud to have over 20 different nationalities - united in their passion for Africa - call our offices home.

Why work for us?

With unparalleled knowledge and unmatched expertise, Rhino Africa is a company fiercely devoted to our role as the leading authority on African travel. We are guided by a desire to stand guard over this continent’s innumerable treasures, and to introduce the rest of the world to her landscapes, wildlife, and people. It is our vision to be the authority on African travel. For four years running, we’ve been awarded the title of Africa’s Leading Safari Company by the World Travel Awards, the Oscars of the travel industry.

What you'll be building

At Rhino Africa, we develop ground-breaking technology that connects luxury African travel companies with international clientele. Our goal is simple: to seamlessly connect the luxury African travel market with those that wish to experience it, from anywhere in the world. We generate premium-quality websites and media that are inspirational and informative, taking a scientific approach to performance marketing to ensure engagement with users across mobiles, tablets and desktops. This drive for innovation forges a path of ground-breaking discovery involving the development of a wide array of technologies. From robust systems used daily by our consultants to customer-facing websites and interactive documentation - we strive to bridge the gap between our customers and our consultants. Each year, working with 2000 partners and suppliers, we service over 15 000 clients and fill 100 000 bednights across the continent.

Our hiring process

Every developer we hire goes through a three-stage screening process, involving:

  1. 1-3 rounds of skills-based tests
  2. An interview with our CTO, Bjorn Dijkshoorn, or our Head of Front End Dev, Adick Renner
  3. A final round interview with CEO Guido Juan Pablo Dunckel
