About the work:

We are immedia: a unique, human-centered, customer-oriented ecosystem that has been headquartered in Umhlanga, South Africa for 25 years. Our software development team, immedia Studio, has developed Fabrik, our “Born in the Cloud” communications platform through which various organisations can securely engage with their clients or members. These organisations vary from media organisations to schools, and from residential communities to business networks.

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.

Core to our product development approach is a respect for data privacy – a central component of our product’s identity, and an imperative in a global marketplace in which consumers’ trust of technology has been diminished.
Our mission is to bring ease, compliance and trust to our clients through our platform of services, which includes web applications, audio streaming and mobile apps.

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. The apps also deliver live and on-demand audio and video over all connection types, underpinned by Microsoft Azure’s hosting services.

Our customers find our Software-as-a-Service compelling due to our agile and iterative software development philosophy, and a good fit for our team are people who thrive off of consistent collaboration with stakeholders, enjoy striving for creative solutions, and understand the benefits of constant iteration.

Transparency and trust are values in our teams in which we try to learn continuously and develop continuously, to grow together in achieving great results for our customers. We strongly believe that, to remain relevant in an ever changing industry, technology professionals have to keep adapting to change in a human and authentic way.

We understand that it is a duty to teach those around us what we have learnt and we have seen that, by doing so, we become better professionals. To support this we empower a teaching and learning culture throughout our ecosystem.

As a team, we’re looking for  people who are curious, open to feedback, and enjoy working together to create a better solution.  We’re looking for team-mates who are not necessarily defined by their technical experience, but people with imagination and energy, vision and shared values, curiosity and heart. Everything else you need can and will be learned along the way through immersion in our iterative environment.
