BUILD A TEAM SO STRONG, IT’S HARD TO TELL WHO THE LEADERS ARE

The story of us
Picture this: Africa 1999: A businessman, a 90-year strong international US company. An appointment to establish a subsidiary in the continent’s then-and-now undisputed business hub, South Africa. The result: A great business that flourished unceasingly, all the while with the businessman bearing in mind that he would need to expand into digital technologies.

Elsewhere, a gutsy entrepreneurial technocrat that loves Deadpool more than his own grandmother had begun working on software that could verify a person’s identity, over the internet.

Johannesburg, 2012: The businessman and the technocrat made each other’s acquaintance. Straight off the bat it was clear - the two shared the same passion for enabling businesses to be better, faster, more secure…their common quest: build a formidable team to do it.

And just like that - faster than you can say “Elon Musk” - the wheels of what was to become a globally renowned digital automation system, were set in motion.

First, in 2013, the duo launched a data bureau system, and was joined by a handsome young guy who would take care of that part of the well-oiled machine for many years to come.

Next, they started exploring cryptography as a core technology for electronic signatures.

In 2014, they met an extraordinary coder with a colossal red beard, and together they started building an electronic signature workflow platform. A lady with a rather unique hairstyle - who happened to be able to sell a rocket to a rocket scientist - joined the team next, followed by a young, cocky programmer and an awkwardly tall database expert. And so the family grew.

In 2018, operations expanded into the US with immediate market penetration into South American countries.

Soon after in 2019, a nerdy looking chap (that may or may not be OCD), opened office in the United Kingdom, serving England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Europe.

In 2020, a firecracker entrepreneur with superhero-like abilities teamed up with a really funny sounding Australian and together they established the Asia Pacific offices in Melbourne. Asia was on the superhero's radar and with astonishing swiftness, he cracked open the vast Asian market like it was a tiny tin of tuna.

Today, the SigniFlow family is scattered all over the world, servicing hundreds of thousands of customers. Our clan is not like a family, it is a family and the game we play, is an infinite one.

Adolph Breytenbach
Bureau Engineer L2
SigniFlow


In addition to the kind of satisfaction only first-rate software development can bring, there are three other things get this software engineer’s hear racing - learning new things, classic cars, and tunes from what is arguably the most technically explorative and legendary decade (in terms of music) to date…the ‘80s. When he's not busy turning caffeine into code, Adolph likes to spend time with his canine companions, and riding motorbike.

Jan Labuschagne
Bureau Engineer L2
SigniFlow


A Hoër Tegniese Skool Middelburg and Belgium Campus ITversity graduate, Jan is one of SigniFlow’s onboarding software engineers. He has three years’ experience with Laravel framework and happens to be a mean cook and baker to boot (in no small way thanks to his grandmother, whose recipes he knows by heart). When Jan is not putting his IT knowledge to excellent use – or cooking up a storm – he is absorbed in the world of motorsports.

Richard Corbishley
Senior Core Engineer L1
SigniFlow


SigniFlow software engineer Richard strives to optimise at every opportunity – be it by reducing a function’s runtime by a fraction of a second, or squeezing that last bit of performance out of an already bleeding-edge PC. And it’s kind of a case of life imitating art for this full-on propeller-head as he tries to include himself in that quest, by competing in virtual reality rhythm game Beat Saber, while also learning the intricacies of cutting-edge technologies, like .NET 5 and Nvidia TensorRT.

What we can tell you
The software you are looking at, was built by a team of people who simply do. not. quit.

Andre du Plessies
Software Engineer L2
Tech Lead
SigniFlow

Software engineer André has his eyes set firmly on what he sees as the ultimate prize, that of mastering the field of software engineering. Not only has he already surmounted a major part of the mountain to get there – a bachelor’s degree in Computing – he also believes he has mastered the art of coffee making, to the point of perfection. Which comes in handy when you’re working for a high-powered software company like SigniFlow.

Andrew Price
Senior Core Engineer L1
SigniFlow

Andrew found his feet in the programming world after a brief stint in psychology, which made him realise he was more passionate about getting inside the brain of a computer, than that of a human. A short time and a coding bootcamp later, Andrew found himself living out his passion, as software engineer and team lead at SigniFlow. His role allows him to do what he loves, and does best – i.e. implement and design new features for the SigniFlow system. While he is highly skilled at what he does, Andrew does have one rather strange glitch…he does it without coffee.

And to think...

Chantell is part of the furniture here at SigniFlow, and it’s hard to imagine the company without her.

Although she has several laurels under her belt (Diploma in Business Management & Admin, ICB Bookkeeper, ISO9001 Certificate are some of them), these are not what she is primarily known for.
