Company Description

iKhokha is one of the fastest-growing fintech companies in Africa. As you'd expect, our pace is fast-moving and ever-changing. We like it that way.
Our office is a high performance environment where we push each other to challenge the status quo. If that doesn’t appeal to you, you probably shouldn’t work here.



Job Description

Our iKTribe is seeking Senior Software Engineers who are looking to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others.

Join our family of talented individuals who are purpose-driven to change people's lives for the better.

So, what will you do?

  • Let’s keep it simple. The way you dev will be modular.
  • At iKhokha it’s all in the cloud. We make use of Cloud Infrastructure provided by AWS. You will too.
  • Serverless. Need we say more.
  • Tech Stack: Typescript is our core language. Java is an easy transition.
  • You will be building new technologies, maintaining existing technologies as well as testing various systems within the fintech space.
  • You will be working in an Agile environment within a Scrum team that allows you to participate and collaborate in sprint ceremonies.
  • You will lead certain projects on your own under the guidance of the Product Manager.

In addition to the above, you will;

  • Work alongside the dev team on the transition to iKhokha’s new development stack which is coded in NodeJS/Typescript. It will encompass the ongoing development and maintenance of iKhokha’s microservice ecosystem including the tools used within it.
  • Be directly responsible for the end-to-end development of serverless microservice based systems, including initial planning, development, writing test cases, creating the deployment pipeline and deploying to our cloud hosting provider.
  • Develop crispy new user-facing features that drive our users to take action, using React.js, HTML5 and CSS.

Deal Breakers:

At least 5 + years of relevant experience with the below technologies:

  • HTML5, CSS and JavaScript
  • Experience with a modern JS framework (React.js would be a plus)
  • Coding in Typescript or Java and the ability to work within Node.js
  • REST API Integration.



Qualifications

The following would be advantageous:

  • Relevant IT Degree



Additional Information

Experience in the below would make you a front runner in this role:

  • We are ideally seeking someone who has had exposure to Financial Services or the Payment industry.
  • It would be advantageous if you have experience in card payments, microservices, code refactoring and testing backend code and software.

Perks of joining the Tribe?

  • You get to work in a high growth company. Sink your teeth into meaningful work with tangible results you are accountable for.
  • Hybrid, remote and in office work models.
  • Remuneration & Benefits. We offer Company contributions to Medical Aid and a Group Risk Scheme.
  • Visionary Leadership. 
  • Study leave.  
  • Access to on demand learning and development.
  • A friendly, collaborative culture and a team of all-round-lekker humans (it’s true, we surveyed our Employees and they told us so).
  • If you find yourself at HQ, coffee on tap and a selection of hot beverages provided by our onsite Barista.
