What we do
At Sebenza we want to bridge the digital divide between the rich and poor in Southern Africa with internet access for all, to uplift communities and create opportunities for empowerment.
Sebenza's digital platform enables commuters to connect, engage, choose and consume through our intuitive, gamified, and fully customizable platform.
We provide meaningful interactions between our commuters and brands through engaging content and tailored advertising, improving the daily public transport commute. We offer our clients services such as lead generation, ad impressions, app downloads, click-throughs, surveys, and databases of insightful information in an untapped market – taxi commuters.
Why Work For Us
Sebenza works with its employees to ensure that they can grow into roles that are best suited to them. This is because we believe in harnessing the strengths of our employees and helping them in any underdeveloped areas. Through this method, we have built a network of people that work together as an efficient team whilst nurturing the individuality of each employee.
The ideal Sebenza employee is a good self-starter, problem-solver, communicator and a team member. A good sense of humour and youthful vitality is a strong bonus.
The Sebenza team is young, creative and passionate. We are all from different backgrounds and have come together to build our brand from the ground up. We value honesty, integrity, effective communication, teamwork, learning, problem-solving and strong opinions. Together we have accomplished great things and will continue to do so in the future, including hosting our in-house Foosball tournaments.
Our Engineering Processes
We follow an agile approach based on a two-week sprint. You are given the freedom to chose your own working hours as long as the work gets done. You will be given detailed wireframes as well as the ability to constantly communicate with the lead developer and designer. Once your work is complete you submit a PR for the lead developer to look over and help you optimize your code if necessary. We strive to follow the best practices and make sure our code is world-class. Will also pay for and certificate or training you wish to do related to your job.
We do like for you to come into the office for some friendly banter now and again but you decide when you feel like it.
Our Hiring Process
A team interview over skype. Just a casual get-to-know-you chat.
We give you some tech challenges to do in our own time and review them when done.
The final round is a face-to-face interview (Covid permitted) with a few more live coding challenges.
