Dragon Hunter recruitment quest

We’re changing the rules of recruitment…

…in our quest to find 15 truly exceptional individuals

We’re seeking visionaries, leaders and captains of industry…
those ready to build something great.

We call these people dragon hunters! Only those with valour, mettle, and guts need apply.

  • We’ve grown consistently by over 40% in the past 18 months.
  • With over 750,000 customers,
    we’re probably the most exciting company that you’ve never heard of!
  • We’re committed to doing good in the wider community,
    supporting 1,800 crèches, and providing early childhood education to over 280,000 kids across South Africa.
