We look for people who strive for perfection and take pride in what they do. We aim for nothing less than excellence, from the manner in which we engage with our clients to the quality of every code commit.

We are looking for people who develop in PHP/Laravel (and other stacks) not merely for the sake of keeping a job, but because they truly enjoy software development.

You will be exposed to a variety of tech stacks and will need to pick up the sort of skills that will enable you to deliver quality code at the speed of light! In addition to working with the latest tech stack, you’ll also get a chance to make a difference through your contributions to various projects. Many of our projects are in the public health space and you’ll have the opportunity to help shape the future of public health in South Africa.

We are not just looking for a Web Engineer. We are looking for someone who is willing and eager to grow with us beyond PHP into other stacks – Meteor, Elixir, Python. The choice is yours.
