The diverse group of Software Engineer careers represented on the stand varied from Software Engineers, Scrum Managers, Quality Assurance Analysts, Administration, Marketing, Support Engineers and HR.

We were pleased to receive extensive social media recognition from students and UCT Career Services, a testament to our positive impact and strong brand presence at the Expo.
