Summary

Howzit!

Before we get into the details, we don't want to waste your time (or ours): Wow Fingers is a small Cape Town-based company; a tightly-knit group of geeks/athletes/gamers/nerds - looking to expand our 'work-family'.

We put our name on our work and we are proud of what we do. So if you're not keen on being part of a 'team' that holds each other accountable and is proud of what we achieve - please don't continue reading =]

Similar to how we dev - we don't want to bore you with too many words - clean, concise, and efficient comms!

We specialise in 2 main niches:

  1. API integrations (from ERPs & CRMs for large corporates to the aggregation of data for mobile applications). Speaking of corporates, our Devs are not typically ever get called into meetings - we have people for that.
  2. Mobile Applications - we build them!

Our projects & products are varied. You will not be bored:
ASP / .Net is shied away from - we are a PHP house.
Laravel is one of the more popular frameworks we work with (though we do have a lot of legacy goodies that we look after).

We have formidable back-end skills as well as strong front-end talent - we operate as one Team, getting things done; leaning on each other.

Culture is a weird thing..
The Team is made up of people who are very different in their own ways, but share the same ethos: build, beautifully.
Outside of that, we only really have one rule: "be lekker".
If you can manage to "be lekker", you'll fit in.

If you're keen to know more, get in touch! (Our website won't tell you much.. it's been like that for a couple of years now - we work on referrals. Reputation is everything.)

We will talk & walk you through what we do in as much detail as your curiosity can manage, in an informal interview.
If you like what you see && we like what we hear, we will move onto some more technical assessments and hey - you could be helping out in the next round of interviews.
