Java Software Engineer
Senior / Intermediate
Cape Town

We are lucky enough to be home to some of the smartest, most gracious people building a unique, best-in-class, not-super-huge technology firm consisting of senior people working closely with our founders to invent radically capable things for global clients.

Our Java engineers use Spark, Splunk, Akka, Redis, PostgreSQL, SQL, SPARQL, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Gearman, Kafka, Elasticsearch and whatever else required to:

  • Create custom microservices
  • Develop, deploy & operate, sophisticated large-scale SaaS solutions
  • Develop feature-rich, cross-platform apps and product frameworks
  • Model & design systems architecture

You’ll love it here if:

  • You are allergic to hierarchical, bureaucratic, business-card cultures
  • You’re sad many of the greatest minds in our generation are busy tricking people into clicking on ads
  • You want to work with very smart people from radically different backgrounds
  • You are a voracious learner & an eager teacher of others
  • You want to be led from the front, not commanded from the rear
  • You don’t tolerate intra-office posturing or other douchebaggery
  • You’re excited to work on a broader array of interesting, challenging projects than you can anywhere else

What we offer:

  • Flexible & generous work & leave schedule
  • Learning organisation based on a reverence for expertise & craftsmanship (Meetups, mentorship & coaching, Lunch & Learning Fridays, conferences, e-learning platform access, tertiary education, tech radar sessions)
  • An exceptional remote working culture
  • Office culture: pet friendly, onsite haircuts, industrial office space…home away from home
  • Macbook Pro Retina’s, noise cancelling headphones, dual monitors, ergonomic chairs, the usual startup perks
