Careers

We are actively and continuously looking for great people to help us realise our mission of transforming outcomes for our customers and the people they care for.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide healthcare professionals with better ways to manage patients in real-time and deliver the best care possible. We build software tools that empower healthcare professionals to deliver on that mission.

Our core company values are SIMPLICITY, INNOVATION, PRIVACY and FIX WHAT IS BROKEN. These principles guide our day-to-day decisions and dictate how we conduct ourselves.

Our Story

Signapps was founded in 2015 by Andrew Davies and Michael Gluckman in partnership with two Orthopaedic surgeons. They saw the need for a healthcare-centric communication tool that enabled them to deliver better and more timely patient care. 

We started out building a real-time communication tool for the public sector in South Africa. We have since expanded our footprint to the private sector and the UK national health system.

Our Work

Your involvement in the delivery of quality software will have a DIRECT and MEANINGFUL impact on people's lives. Our software is used by healthcare professionals to deliver the highest standard of care to their patients. 

The demand for technology that enables effective communication between various disciplines in medicine is explosive. We are looking for talented people who can employ the best platforms and tools to facilitate it. 

We offer a workspace that values flexibility and transparency. New ideas are welcomed and encouraged. You will also get to work on interesting and challenging problems :)

Our Team

Our development team is a combination of mobile, web, devops and backend developers. We offer flexible work hours and remote working opportunities. 

We have people in Cape Town, JHB and Durban. Our main offices are in Cape Town where everyone gets together every quarter for a team huddle. 

We measure employees based on output and contribution rather than how many hours they can sit in a chair. We do prefer it if you are online during our core working hours between 9am and 4pm because collaboration is necessary to deliver good software.

Our Tech Stack

We host all our software in the AWS cloud. We use a combination of Xamarin for our mobile product, ReactJS on the web and Java/Kotlin for the backend that powers our software platform. 

Our software is built on the principles of domain driven design. Our microservice architecture is built around business capabilities using gRPC for inter service communication. We are not afraid of adopting new technology if it gets the job done. 

Our workflow is lean and simple. Jira, Slack, email, phone calls. Meetings are scarce, work is plentiful. 

Our Benefits

Remote Work

Signapps has offices in Cape Town but our team is spread out around the Country. We know the best talent might not be in driving distance from our office and we don’t think you need to be in the office to do your best work.

Flexi Hours

We measure employees based on output and contribution rather than how many hours they can sit in a chair. We do prefer it if you are online during our core working hours between 9am and 4pm because collaboration is necessary to deliver good software.

Reading & Learning

A career in technology means there are always new things to learn. Signapps will sponsor book purchases and online courses to help keep your skills sharp.

Tools

Productivity can be drastically improved when you use right tools for the job at hand. That's why we try to work with the best tools available. If you need something to do your job we will get it for you.
