About us

Our vision is to be one of the most trusted and influential media and tech companies, that serves people and enriches culture.

The dev team does this by growing our multi-tenanted platform that creates engaging and delightful content experiences for the enterprise organisations we serve in South Africa and internationally.

This spans both the digital learning and publishing spaces, impacting thousands of users each day.

The team

We’re a cross-functional team dedicated to the development (and support) of the whole platform. We work collaboratively in an agile Scrum environment with the tooling and processes needed to get the job done effectively over the long-term.

We all work remotely, with in person meetings every few weeks, and flexible working hours.

The opportunity

We’re aiming to build a world-class team, to help make a highly scalable, world class product, so we’re looking for a senior developer, preferably a full-stack senior developer, who wants to contribute meaningfully to the team and platform for several years (hopefully longer).

You’d need a great attitude (no ego’s), solid technical skills and experience, and enough knowledge of our tech stack.

The position is a full-time position with 20 days annual leave. You’ll receive a brand new MacBook, supporting monitor as a second screen, a monthly home office allowance, and an annual amount towards equipping your work space.

What you’ll do

  • Contribute to the entire development process - design, develop, test, and ship quality features
  • Work across the platform’s technology stacks
  • Contribute to the continuous improvement of our standards, processes, codebase and quality
  • Contribute to the technical and product roadmap
  • Resolve production issues, when needed
  • What you’ll need

  • Minimum of 6 years experience in web application development
  • Minimum of 4 years experience working with a modern JavaScript framework (React, Angular or Vue), with ReactJS being an advantage (our primary language going forward)
  • Experience with Reactive Native is an advantage (for mobile app dev)
  • Experience with back-end web applications, with js being an advantage
  • Experience with database queries, with MongoDB being an advantage
  • Experience with REST API’s is an advantage
