The Challenge

We believe that technology is most powerful when it's used to build real solutions to the ways we live, move, eat, and work on this planet. Our cross-discipline teams tackle big and diverse challenges with partners around the world, and no two projects are alike - and as a certified AWS partner we're proactively building cloud-based data infrastructures and cloud-native applications that scale and serve millions of users around the globe.

In 2021 we want to strengthen our expertise across cloud management and automation, Containers and Serverless and other use cases and build the strongest DevOps team across the African continent and we'd love you to drive that chapter with us.
