They firmly believe in staying up to date with latest technologies, so you’ll be working with the latest tech at international standards.  

Whilst this is a very modern and fast paced organisation, the atmosphere is also relaxed.  Leave those suits and ties at home, but please wear something. 

Our client doesn’t believe that sitting in traffic for hours each day is necessary so working hours are flexible, with core working hours between 9am and 4pm.   

To keep you healthy, stress free, and happy – they provide nutritious meals (free of course), serve cappuccinos from their coffee bar, provide free access to the gym, and of course there are free massages from their wellness therapist when you need it the most.  

Our client is able to pay top dollar to attract and retain top talent in South Africa and offer excellent end of year bonuses based on company and individual performance.  The company is outperforming though, so for now, the rest is up to you.


Work hard and play hard?  Head on down to the bar every Friday afternoon, try your hand at Poker on Thursday evenings, enjoy regular team building events such as white river rafting, and so much more. 

Most of all they have created a culture second to none.  Small on egos; big on energy.  Possibly the most employee centric client we’ve come across.  Ever.
