Our Graduate program at Open Box Software is well known in the Cape Town tech industry and for good reason!
Usually, this program 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, 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.
We pride ourselves in welcoming graduates & juniors into our business, upskilling them in real-time, and giving them a supportive environment to learn, grow and develop with the help of a team, mentors, and experienced individuals who have been with the business and in the tech industry for many years.
What are we looking for in successful grads? Someone who is willing to take initiative, responsibility, and have an opinion. Work hard, be open to learning, asking questions, AND making mistakes. Someone who wants to add value, be part of a team, and really get their hands dirty
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.
Our graduate program caters for those who are keen to kick start their careers in either Software Development or Business Analysis.
Our usual intake date is the beginning of the year – the next intake will be at the beginning of January 2021.
Given the COVID-19 pandemic and current legislation that governs employers in South Africa, we will be looking to host a virtual induction program with a view to our new graduates being based predominantly from home for the first 6 months.
