Life in technology/Global locations

South Africa

The Technology Centre

We were founded in April 2010, and projects that could range from upgrading ATMs to re-platforming a country’s banks mean our team is set to grow.

What we do

It’s our brief to host the applications for the region’s emerging markets – from Uganda and Kenya to Egypt, Pakistan and UAE. Whether it’s ATMs or credit card transfers, all the banks in these areas run on our technology platform, and we look after all the network and infrastructure applications.

What it’s like to work here

Our leadership is very positive and we’re especially motivated by the impact our work has on the bank and all of our customers. You will also benefit from global exposure, technology and collaboration on a substantial scale. There’s always opportunity too – whether you want a secondment or to work on Flexcube, here’s the place to do it.

The career development is fantastic, as is our morale and our interaction with other global teams. We also get together with the management every month for breakfast, and share our ideas, making it a truly collaborative and innovative working environment.
