- At MiWay, our purpose is to enable people to live their way. We understand that life is not just about “things” – but the meaning that those things bring to your life. We believe that technology and innovation have infinite possibilities when it’s inspired by humans… by you.
- This is why we focus on our clients’ needs; finding new ways to simplify their lives and how they do things. We give them products, services and solutions that enable them to live and enjoy life on their own terms – in their own way.
- Agile values and principles are strongly embedded in our culture and they are at the core of how we make decisions and how we approach adding value within the company.
- Our development department is grouped into various teams who service various areas of our business. Our teams are self-organising and given autonomy to influence the technical direction of our applications and shape the success of our organisation. We promote a flat structure which means that we are all equally responsible for the role that our department fulfills and how we add value to the business. Even though some individuals are tasked to take on more or alternative responsibilities, we do not promote classic titles and traditional structures.
- In line with an agile principle, we take our level of technical excellence seriously. We place a vast amount of emphasis on coding standards and quality, and strictly adhere to them. All our code and solutions are reviewed by the whole department to promote knowledge sharing, and our testing community is empowered to make the final decisions on whether acceptance criteria are met.
- Even though we require team members to have adequate working experience and a healthy attitude towards growing skills and participating in our industry, teams are not built around individual superstars and we prefer individuals who are more team orientated.
- Interested? Well, we’re looking to grow our team with a talented, passionate developer, who will be responsible for planning and developing world-class solutions within our cross-functional team. The ideal developer will contribute towards sustainable, intuitive, and functional solutions that meet business needs, while furthering our ever-growing technology-stack and applications.
