Amazon has a thriving technical centre in Cape Town! This is the centre where Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) was first created in 2005. In 2006 the Cape Town team launched Amazon EC2. In 2012, Amazon started building an AWS Support group based in Cape Town.
In addition, our Kumo Development team owns the services and user interfaces required to deliver various AWS Support features to our customers. The team builds applications that encompass a variety of technical areas such as Information Retrieval, Data Mining, and building scalable systems that close the last mile gap with AWS Customers like Netflix. An example application is AWS Trusted Advisor which performs data mining for customers and gives precise recommendation on cost optimization, security, fault tolerance and performance. In this team you will work across all AWS Customers from big & diverse enterprises to small customers as they move their infrastructure to the cloud. You will get firsthand experience interacting across all AWS services such as EC2, RDS, S3, Redshift, DynamoDB and others. Being an innovative solution in the industry, first of its kind for cloud computing, complex AWS Services and immense amounts of data makes our problems very challenging.
The Cape Town AWS Support team provides global technical support to external customers, helping them build mission-critical applications using AWS services such as EC2, S3 and RDS.
The Amazon Development Centre in Cape Town, South Africa is seeking a number of talented software engineers, system engineers, technical managers and team leads who can work in an environment that is technically demanding, agile and believes in delivering high quality products to our customers.

JUMO believes that technology provides the opportunity to connect everyone, everywhere with great choices.

For 80% of our customers, the JUMO platform is providing their first interaction with a Bank.
JUMO has grown from a team of 7 to 250, rolling out our products across Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda and Ghana with our partners, Airtel, Tigo and MTN. We use data to understand what financial opportunities people need and then we put the power of that choice in the palm of their hands.

takealot.com's mission is to be the most customer-centric online shopping destination in Africa. Our company is built around the simple concept that the customer comes first.
We recognise that our success hinges on our ability to delight our customers with superior customer service. All of our focus is dedicated to improving the customer experience, from the moment you arrive on our website and place your order to the moment it arrives at your door and any occasional hiccups that may occur during and after delivery (We strive to be perfect but things do happen…). By aligning ourselves to this philosophy, we believe takealot.com will be the number one shopping destination across Africa.
Who are we?
We are first and foremost a financial service company, but we also see ourselves as leading technologists.
What do we do?
We build software solutions that make our clients' and our own lives easier.
What tech do we use?
Our environment contains a diverse range of technologies. The backend language of choice at the moment is Scala and we are evaluating our front-end stack. We are redoing our architecture and aiming to build Microservices hosted on containers and exposing REST-like APIs. We have traditionally been a .NET development shop however we have decided to adopt a more open stack. We generally look for full-stack developers who are tech agnostic and would prefer to use the right tool for the job. We use Agile best practices and frameworks such as Scrum, TDD, Continuous Integration etc.

Impact Radius' digital marketing platform enables significant improvement in the return on global advertising spend for brands and agencies. The company provides a fully-integrated suite of products for media attribution, performance marketing, tag management and mobile analytics. Impact Radius provides a singular view into the consumer journey, tracks cross-channel marketing efforts, and delivers Big Data insights that drive revenue growth.
Impact Radius was founded in 2008 by a team of Internet marketing and technology experts who previously founded Commission Junction, Savings.com and LeadPoint.
From the beginning, we disrupted the industry by moving away from the affiliate network model, instead introducing a SaaS technology platform for performance marketing professionals.
We then set our sights on omnichannel marketing analytics, building the most comprehensive digital marketing platform with multi-channel insights, attribution modeling, tag management and automated workflows. We remain committed to best-in-class technology, transparent data you can trust, and unceasing innovation that delivers next-generation solutions to digital marketers around the world.
