Full Time / Cape Town, South Africa
Driven by an eye-wateringly good content, a fantastic product, the latest technology and outstanding people, iflix has developed a disruptive business and a culture which matches the huge ambition of the company.
iflix is rapidly expanding our amazing team and we’re looking for out-of-this world engineers, to contribute to the building of what will soon be the most engaging, and widely used entertainment platform on planet Earth.
WE LIKE TO LOOK BEYOND JOB DESCRIPTIONS. WE ARE NOT SPECIFIC ABOUT SKILLS AND PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES, WE WANT PEOPLE WHO CAN MAKE US BETTER…
Do you have the ability to look at what we do and improve the way we do it? We don’t want to tell you what to do, we want YOU to tell us what to do!
Are you a problem solver? We are not perfect. Our tech can get better, our product can get better, we want people who know what ‘better’ looks like and understands that ‘better’ will forever be transforming.
We are NOT about the tools or languages we choose to solve problems! The tools will be ever evolving, the ability to apply the right tool to the right problem is the key to our success.
Problem solving is great but the ability to learn quickly is also important. At iflix, our product is constantly changing, our industry is constantly changing…our customers are constantly changing.
We need people who can learn new technologies and apply them quickly to our unique business challenges.
We love people with a diverse background, who have moved around, been in different companies, varied industries and multiple countries. These types of people have seen that there are different ways to do things and many ways to solve one problem.
