We are looking for .NET developers to join our Fabrik team, and work on products that take advantage of the Azure platform.

Fabrik, our “Born in the Cloud” communications platform, spans several different industry verticals with the common purpose of harnessing social behaviour in a privately-managed space.

 

The platform is heavily focused on messaging and real-time communication. The natively-developed mobile apps include messaging features such as push notifications, rich media support, group chat and more. The messaging management component is a web-based application that collects and delivers messaging across multiple messaging streams.

Broadcast clients like radio stations benefit from live audio streaming and podcasting capabilities that are delivered directly by the Fabrik platform. Podcasts are created from a live audio stream and published automatically, via a custom-built web-based workflow.

Working on the Fabrik API will give you the opportunity to work on an application that takes advantage of the Azure cloud platform. The codebase uses services such as Azure Functions, Web Apps, Azure Storage and Azure SQL, and is built and deployed using the Azure DevOps platform. The application also takes advantage of the automatic scaling possibilities within the Azure cloud.

 

In this role you will get the opportunity to learn more about the Azure platform, to become a Microsoft Certified Azure Developer if you would like, and contribute to creating intellectual property that is proudly African.
