Itching to be part of something that changes an industry? Want to have your voice heard without having to wear a formal shirt? Okay, you still have to wear something but we are okay with hoodies.
We are a small team of techies that focus on great work and perfecting our crafts. We are a mix of designers, do-it-yourselfers, tinkerers, problem-solvers, programmers, otakus, potjiekos chefs, whiteboard artists and experts in random conversations.
We started with a simple goal of making fibre accessible to everyone and have now exploded in growth on the back of the fibre expansion in South Africa. In everything we do, we strive to build the best possible product. Our goal is to combine simplicity and power to deliver an awesome experience.
We don’t need an entire website, complete with stock images and staff testimonials, to sell our company culture. Our modus operandi is very simple: have fun, do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, and keep learning.
Some of the things that makes working at AEx awesome:
- Small, focused teams working with some of the biggest networks and service providers in South Africa
- A relaxed environment with lots of coffee and conversations
- People that know what they’re doing, and aren’t afraid to share their knowledge
- It’s not uncommon to skip the board room and have meetings at a nearby coffee shop
- We work in Ruby
- We are amassing a number of coffee take-away cups to build something
Rock Star? Code ninja? NO THANK YOU! Can we now have an adult conversation?
We want thoughtful, considerate managers. It doesn’t hurt if you can code our entire API in 3 days either. Fitting in with the culture is more important than fitting in with a stereotype. Quirky and eccentric is not a negative but careless code and slowing progress is.
