Who are we
TrueVolve Technologies is a young software engineering company that was founded in 2014 by two freelance developers, Stephan and Steyn. We began the company by building on a common client base and combining our expertise and resources.
We wanted to create a relaxed work environment that specializes in innovative open source-based projects which enabled us to explore our shared enthusiasm for development and knowledge.
We are constantly searching for passionate people, exciting new technologies, opportunities and adventures. Our team and our experience has since grown quite a bit.
What we do
We engage in areas where hardware, firmware and higher-level software overlap. And attempt to solve some of the typical problems with modern ideas. (Like what? Is it obvious to people?)
TrueVolve is involved in a few niche technology areas. Some of which include :
Systems where auto identification tokens play a central role. These tokens are typically:
- RAIN RFID aka UHF RFID
- 2D barcoding, commonly QR code, Data Matrix Code, PDF417 and others
We are proud to have been the first to develop and implement the ISO/IEC 20248 standard - a standard that uses auto-identification tokens to prove the authenticity of data (by means of asymmetric cryptography) and can also verify the originality of important information.
Typically, this can be used to digitally confirm the legitimacy of a "Proof of Payment" document. It ensures that the amounts, dates, and recipients have not been tampered with.
We use Android as a platform for many of our projects. We build Android apps as tools for configuring hardware devices, access control with dynamic workflow customization, cross-border tracking and feedback from truck drivers. To name a few.
Some of our favorite tools for building loT and cloud technology solutions are Android Things, Google Kubernetes Engine, Firebase, and BigQuery.
Also, we love Linux.
Why Work For Us
We aim to offer a more informal, non-corporate environment that does not sacrifice on professionalism or quality. We work to a high standard and place great emphasis on mentorship.
Through a diverse range of projects, we focus on continually developing our own skills and those of our employees. TrueVolve distinguishes itself from the hordes of other software development companies with the simple promise that we only commit to projects that we believe in and are of interests to us.
If you are someone looking to improve your skills and work with new and interesting technologies in a relaxed and supportive environment, then you should seriously consider us.
We recently closed down our old offices in Centurion and moved everybody to home offices. We are of the opinion that in 2019 this is the right choice not only for the environment but also for our souls. If you can avoid traffic then you should.
Innovation, good ideas, and excitement about technology are the values we hold.
We believe in equality and fairness above all else and you will find that we are very open-minded about ideas pushed by members of our team.
