WHAT MAKES US TICK_
Who We Are
We are a young and passionate Johannesburg based startup in the process of building out and delivering a SaaS sports betting and CRM platform. We are extremely well funded and are currently focused on the rapid growth of both our product and engineering team. Though new to the scene, we are already servicing industry leading players.
The Challenge Ahead
The sports betting domain is a satisfyingly complex and challenging space to operate in, both in terms of features and the technology needed to solve the problems we encounter. This is a space where there will always be opportunity to innovate and grow, and we will not be idle in helping our team to be successful on behalf of the company and in their personal careers.
We are also a young company, and it will be expected that the people who join us at this stage will have a big impact on our culture, the product and our engineering decisions.
What Culture Means to Us
We are staunchly open, inclusive, collaborative, and empowered professionals working in a Red Tape free zone. Ideas can come from anywhere, and any idea can be critiqued by anyone. The corollary of this is that we do not become emotionally attached to our ideas, and are able to let them drop without damage to ego.
We also believe in sustainable development. We work hard and we have fun, but we also respect that we all have our private lives to enjoy.
Our Engineering Processes
We are fiercely Agile. At the moment we are not conforming to a particular Agile framework, as we are in the process of scaling up. We are more Kanbany than anything else right now, possibly with a move to Scrum as we mature.
We value clean code. Decoupled, framework agnostic, well architected software components make us happy.
We value tests. Our development is driven by tests where possible and practical. Tests make you faster.
DevOps. We are in the Microsoft/Google garage phase here. Except it is not a garage, it is some nice offices. Software Engineering does not end at merging to master.
