Senior Software Developer

 

Logimeter is a fast growing, profitable, tech company based in Newlands, Cape Town.   We help over 8 000 companies make sense of their sales leads, advertising spend and staff performance with our software, services and telecommunications infrastructure.

We're looking for enthusiastic, experienced software developers to join us and help to solve a challenging set of problems in space packed full of opportunities.  

 Though this is a software dev role, there will be lots of opportunities to learn and contribute to telecommunications engineering, DevOps, interface design, complex data analytics, database administration, networking, and software development methodologies.   We're hiring based on attitude, aptitude, and delivery.

 

The responsibilities of Logimeter Software Developers include:
 

  1. Communication: in and open, clear, precise, and hopefully lighthearted manner.
  2. Best practices:  stay current, and help implement.  Fight for them. 
  3. Quantity of work: strive to get 1% faster and more efficient every day. 
  4. Quality: it matters in old and new code.
  5. Fix legacy code; don't sweep problems under the mat.
  6. Safeguard and protect customers' and Logimeter's data and intellectual property.
  7. Solving the real-problem-at-hand.  The real-problem-at-hand may not even be known, and the spec may be misleading. It will require some tenacious digging.  
  8. Help and train colleagues (you were once there) and customers. 
  9. Processes: critically evaluate them, improve them, and help implement them.

 
Most importantly, you are responsible for solving real-world problems, not writing code.
 
 "Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away"  Antoine de Saint-Exupery, 1939
