Frontend Engineer

Date posted 05/14/2018 Location ,

In March 2018, Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, acquired Cape, a local startup with a big vision: to improve the way the Internet works. As Cape we built a small team of skilled engineers and designers in Cape Town and a Wi-Fi monitoring product which won us Best Startup of 2017 from Wi-Fi NOW, a global industry body.Now, as part of Aruba, we are growing our team, building new products, and scaling our systems to meet a 1OOX surge in demand during the next 18-24 months.

What do we do? Our product gives IT managers insight into how their Wi-Fi, networks, and apps are performing 24/7 and how to fix any issues before users complain. Other monitoring tools are complex and intimidating, built by network engineers for network engineers; ours is beautiful and simple, and our customers love it. Our hardware agent is a delight to install and our software is easy and fun to use. Our product is used in offices, hotels, airports, stadiums, retail stores, and more-every business with Wi-Fi is a potential customer we can help.

We design our own hardware and manufacture in Cape Town. Our backend and frontend systems and software are built entirely in-house using Python, React, Java, lnfluxDB and AWS Kinesis among other technologies.
