Meet the local software development company that’s expanding globally

Cape Town-based redPanda Software is rapidly growing and looking for experienced core java developers to join their team.

redPanda Software is an expert in the end-to-end development and support of customised applications aimed at streamlining business processes and operations.

The company began in 2009 and has since swiftly grown to a team of over 110 people.

“We cover the full spectrum, from Retail and Point of Sale, Property Management, Warehousing and Logistics to Debtor Control, Credit Granting and HR Management.

“We also have specialist skills for migrating legacy software,” says redPanda Software CEO Gareth Hawkey.

The company is still on an impressive growth curve, having recently completed a new deal with a global company.

As a result, the company is looking to expand its team further with intermediate and senior Java developers who have at least 4 years’ experience.

“The company has big, blue-chip clients, which promises candidates the opportunity to skill up and work with modern technologies in the java environment,” Hawkey adds.

Candidates are offered travel opportunities since training takes place over 3 months abroad, and developers will need to return annually for a month.

“We need to make sure that the international team collaborates well, and these trips abroad help to establish and maintain good relationships,” Hawkey explains.

redPanda software maintains a long-term view on its staff, believing that developing its team and driving the careers of its developers is key to producing good products and determining value.

While the average attrition rate in the industry is 20%, redPanda software is only 5% as the company is able to retain staff over the long term to due to its management approach and staff culture.

redPanda offers two career paths – technical and management – so successful candidates will be able to choose how to advance their careers.

“Our developers will  be working on a high-profile account with customers they can be proud of, with strong recognizable brand retail names both internationally and locally,” Hawkey says.
