How To Find Tech Vacancies in South Africa

15 February 2020 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in Talent Agents

Finding tech jobs in SA

South Africa may be sitting between a rock and a dark place with the resulting load-shedding, but that has not stopped the technology sector from growing in the country. Large scale companies are all in the process of modernisation operations and the capital to go with it. While the startup scene in Cape Town has been a leader in the country and has also caught on in cities like Johannesburg and Durban.

But they're not the only ones moving into the digital space as small businesses also make their way and transition into using the technologies available to them as having your website, and online advertising becomes a more affordable method of running your business.

South Africa also provides a unique opportunity for foreign companies looking to leverage the labour arbitrage in the country as they can get an affordable rate for highly skilled tech staff.

Finding tech jobs in South Africa

Given the factors, I've listed above; it is no wonder the tech is a popular industry to work in, not to mention that many tech jobs pay very well. But where can you find jobs with top tech companies? Well, job boards are one place you can start. We put together this list of the best tech job boards so you can quickly and easily find jobs in your city and apply today.
