About us

swipe is a boutique agency focused on strategic digital solutions.

Founded in early 2014 by industry leaders Leo Redelinghuys and Deon Heunis, swipe has quickly grown to become one of the most dynamic and versatile digital solutions agencies in Africa. With globally recognised mainstay clients including WeChat, DStv and Discovery Networks UK, to name a few, our team of senior solutions architects, technical designers and operations specialists have had the privilege of working on some of the most exciting technical executions of their careers.

Passion and dedication is what drives the engine of our growth. Our enterprise grade solutions are purpose built from the ground up to satisfy every requirement and our platforms scale to support any load. Our agile approach allows us to constantly monitor, analyse. iterate and improve the products we build. Our solutions are powered by deep strategic thinking, global industry insights and operational best practices.

Above all, swipe is made up of an exceptional team of world-class developers, designers, strategists and producers that form the foundation of our success. We value every ounce of extra-ordinary effort that is delivered day in and day out toward the unified goal of being the best at what we do.

Our Culture

We are a close and passionate team of experienced individuals. We employ extraordinary people to create extraordinary solutions.

Free Lunches
Our passion needs fuel.

Beer O’ Clock
It’s a real thing. And we actually like hanging out together.

Flexitime
It’s about deliverables, not hours.

Serious Coffee
Because coffee is a serious thing.

Custom Workstations
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.

  1. Interview with the CTO. Deon decides if he is happy with your experience and general demeanour.

  2. Code test. We are results orientated and test everything.

  3. Team interview. At the end of the day, the team makes the final decision.

  4. Offer.
