Our Graduates

We’re looking for dynamic, passionate, and ambitious graduates just like you!

Our Grad Programme is well known in the Cape Town tech industry and for good reason! This programme will be your first taste of the ‘real world’. Your first job. Your first salary. Your first Monday – Friday. And even if it isn’t, this will likely be your first gig where you are (almost straight off the bat) included in a billable team and doing billable work with real-time clients – we like to call it: learning on the go and swimming in the deep end, all rolled into one.

Spoiler alert! None of this is going to be handed to you on a silver platter. Elbow grease is required but as with most things in life, if you put in the effort, you will reap the rewards.

COVID-19

What working at Open Box will look like

 

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we appreciate that we may never go back to how it used to be in the ‘old days’. Adjusting to working from anywhere (WFA) has been a smooth transition for Open Box, as we many of us were already geared to being productive away from the physical office based in Tokai, Cape Town. The office remains open to anyone that wishes to use it whilst following the Covid-19 protocols prescribed for the workplace. We foresee this being the case currently and will always adopt a viewpoint that would be inclusive, safe and viable for everyone.

Our Grads

Don't take our word for it, hear what our previous grads thought of the program

 

Junior Software Developer, IT graduate program South Africa

“Joining Open Box has been such an enriching and enjoyable experience. I joined with a lot of concerns about the working world and how I would adjust to it, but it has been such a natural and progressive experience that I kind of feel silly for worrying about it in the first place. My favourite part of joining Open Box has got to be the people, Open Box is filled with kind and helpful people that have taught me so much. The only scary part about joining Open Box is how good some people are at table tennis.”
