Why Work For Us

We grow technical leaders with an entrepreneurial flair, who are as comfortable managing strategic discussions as they are in being hands-on and crafting a technical solution. Software development is not a support function to us, it is the lifeblood of what we do. For this reason we invest in people who are adept at building software that solve critical business problems. We support agile thinkers along a diverse career path in software where the options are limitless.

There is a reason why we’re a sought after employer. Our teams solve complex problems on a daily basis, and get involved in exciting, sophisticated development projects for blue-chip clients. Our people are also exposed to an open environment, with continual opportunities to learn from leaders in the field and put this into practice on high-impact projects. We combine the practical with the cerebral in a manner that gives us all a sense of purpose.

Not all work and no play – we have lots of fun too! There are monthly team-building activities, bi-annual hackathons, health and well-being challenges and most importantly we get involved in activities and events to help underprivileged communities in Johannesburg.
