Beer O’ Clock
It’s a real thing. And we actually like hanging out together.
It’s about deliverables, not hours.
Because coffee is a serious thing.
Nobody is built the same and neither should their workstation.
Our Engineering Processes
At Swipe we subscribe to the agile manifesto: we empower our developers to make important decisions. We believe in regular feedback loops with clients and results, rather than too many processes and bloated documentation.
We respond to change with teams that are self-organised and motivated.
Every day we meet briefly for our brief stand-ups; thereafter someone is likely to test your willpower an offer of amazing coffee. Later in the day - because, amazing developers - we are happy to look the other way when beer-o-clock arrives. Sometimes we even encourage it.
Our Hiring Process
Our hiring process is straight forward.
Interview with the CTO. Deon decides if he is happy with your experience and general demeanour.
Code test. We are results orientated and test everything.
Team interview. At the end of the day, the team makes the final decision.
