Summary

What we do

Getting a great home cleaner on time can be a big challenge in emerging markets. SweepSouth brings in-house built technology and a completely different attitude to home services to solve these issues.

SweepSouth is the largest online marketplace on the African continent for ordering and paying for home cleaning services (other services launching soon). We connect people with experienced, reliable, efficient and insured cleaners in minutes.

We are alumni of the Silicon Valley-based 500 Startups, a leading global venture capital seed fund and startup accelerator.

Why Work For Us

We have an opportunity to change a global industry that has been operating on phones and classifieds for the past 50 years. What stands between the old way of doing things and the opportunity at hand is a $440B USD global market. We're a successful, well funded company, working on fun, relevant and highly challenging technical problems. Join us and be part of this movement.

Our Culture

We're a diverse, smart and socially conscious group of young people. We're passionate about making a difference and not afraid to challenge the status quo.

Our Engineering Processes

Our processes and best practices are largely based on the twelve-factor methodology.
