    Experienced Software Engineer


    Who we are

    Zappi is a fast-growing SaaS platform helping Fortune 500 companies pre-test new ideas and creative content before production. From new products, media campaigns, names, logos, packaging or flavours, Zappi allows companies to shelve bad ideas and improve on good ones. We bring together top expertise in applied statistics, data science, visualization, UX and engineering to create a platform that allows non-expert users to make high-stakes decisions easily and confidently. We believe it’s possible to run a profitable business while also having a positive impact on the environment and our communities

    What we value

    We believe in hiring people that want a chance to do their best work. Driven engineers operate best in high-trust, small, cross-functional teams who work together with the rest of the business to bring value to our customers.

    We believe great engineering happens in great teams that value improvement, curiosity and continuous learning. We align as a business on the challenges we need to solve and trust teams to solve them in the best possible way.

    We value experimentation, failing fast and being bold. We practice continuous delivery and fast iteration. We hate politics, gate-keeping, unfairness and toxic behaviour. We believe in transparency, even when it’s unflattering. We believe in honesty, even when it’s uncomfortable. We treat failure as a learning opportunity. We believe in ethical and responsible business practices and having a positive impact on the environment and our communities.

    What you will be working on

    The Modelling teams are responsible for building data modelling infrastructure that allows Zappi’s clients to find the insights in their data. Our current goal is to migrate our existing products to a new, more robust and flexible data-driven architecture. As a modelling team member, you’ll be building the data pipeline that allows users to merge disparate surveys; filter their data at the most granular level; and calculate and apply historical benchmarks.

    Experience in Ruby/Python/React and data modelling/engineering is a benefit but not a requirement. The ideal candidate is one who is self-motivating, passionate about designing and building high-quality systems, willing to adapt to new languages and learn new technologies in order to solve difficult problems, has experience working with highly available systems and is able to work in a data-driven and continuously improving environment.

    The team and engineering function practices continuous integration and deploys to production multiple times per day, on an auto-scaling Kubernetes cluster running on AWS.


    • You will need to be able to demonstrate characteristics of an junior/intermediate engineer (this is generally more than 2 years experience)

    • You are able to demonstrate how you add value to a team as a senior engineer, and what you expect from a high performing team

    • You have transferable technical experience. We don’t need deep expertise in our tech stack if you can demonstrate your ability to learn new technologies

    • You have the right to work in the location advertised or in any of our supported remote working countries


    • Competitive pay scales that are benchmarked annually – this is not something we just say in job descriptions. We aim to pay well so that you can do your best work.

    • Unlimited holidays – we encourage people to take plenty of leave

    • Remote-first working environment

    • Thoughtfully designed offices to support both individual work and collaboration without interrupting others

    • Generous hardware budget – get what works for you (e.g: 16” MBP, monitors, etc)

    • Support setting up your home office, if appropriate (chair + desk, etc)

    • Wellbeing benefits such as yoga and access to trained therapists / counsellors

    • Paid 24h secure parking in Cape Town

    Equal Opportunity

    Zappi is an equal opportunity employer; our diversity is a major strength. We maintain a constant dialogue with our teams and wider communities about how we can become a more inclusive place to work.
