About the opportunity:

If you’re a Senior Backend Developer who enjoys working with high volumes of data in the ‘deep backend’ with a focus on code optimization, this is the position for you. At MiX Telematics the backend components speak to each other. These are large and complex systems operating real-time, big data pipeline processing and intra-processed messaging. As such, you need to be completely comfortable with handling more than one API and have a solid understanding of what is going on ‘under the hood’.

You’d be joining an intense, high-performance team comprised of intellectual and academic personalities. These are the sorts of developers who understand what ‘data streaming’ means and know when it’s being used as a buzzword.

The Software Development department is sectioned into Software Domain Teams, each having 'ownership' of their IP (Technology choices, architecture, best practices, DevOps) and an appropriate degree of autonomy. This provides the best of both worlds having the feel of a small 'start up' team while also having the security of being part of a well-established and stable business
