Front-End Engineer

Who we are…

Collectively, we have some of the smartest minds in the industry, our head offices located in Cape Town and we are the largest player in the game. Of course, what is impressive isn’t where we are from or where we are now, but what we’ve accomplished. In the last year, we’ve grown at such a rate that we are growing our development team tremendously and we need world-class developers as we expand globally.

SMSPortal uses the latest technologies to build state of the art services that are highly optimized for performance at massive levels. We are a young, energetic and motivated company that values solid computer science and engineering practises. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual where the sharing of ideas is strongly encouraged.

What we need…

SMSPortal is looking for a top class Front-End software engineer to join a great team as we continue to build and enhance our presence in our international markets. While this is an individual contributor role, you’ll be involved in many aspects– helping evolve our existing architecture, working with teams to improve operations, and implementing new features and functionality.

The job involves the following responsibilities:

  • Develop features to enhance the users’ experience
