Internship & Careers

What's it like to work at KRS?

KRS office life

The Spirit of KRS

KRS is not your average IT company. Even though we work remotely, we're a social bunch and love to hang out together. On any given day you might find teams playing a quick game of Among Us, sharing memes or enjoying some healthy banter.

Every so often we organise social events (all Covid-friendly, of course), whether it’s a braai in Wynberg Park or pizza and beers at a favourite local spot.

Teams also enjoy regular "happy chappy" outings of their choice, from surf lessons at Muizenberg to getting creative at Clay Cafe. The chance to chill out and have some fun is a vital part of our culture.

Our Ethos

Great people create great ideas. We believe in people. That’s why KRS set out to create a place that allows each person to learn, thrive and produce the best work to their ability. Training and workshops foster an environment of knowledge-sharing.

Join our Internship Bootcamp

We're super excited to announce that we will be attempting our first remote internship programme on the 28th June 2021.

We realise the awful impact Covid 19 has had on many graduates' career plans, having their internships cancelled, their studies being moved to remote lectures and graduations delayed, it's been a scary and uncertain time for all. Assisting our youth to get their foot into the door of a career in software development has always been something KRS has been passionate about. We have been running an annual software internship for over a decade, and have been working hard to make sure our internship can become more accessible for all. We have been piecing together an experimental remote internship program for students and are looking for candidates to join us.

If you are an IT graduate or currently an IT intern with a passion for developing great software, this is definitely for you.

What are the requirements?

Applicants must:

  • Have a good stable internet connection and a Windows computer that is capable of running Visual Studio along with a SQL Express instance
  • Be in possession of a matric qualification and a completed IT-related degree/national diploma/certificate from a recognised institute with an above-average academic record. If you do not have an IT-related degree/national diploma/certificate and are self taught, please share a link to your portfolio or work you have completed.
  • Have programming experience in C# or Java
  • Be able to work independently and within a team
  • Have a strong passion for coding
  • Be a South African citizen or have a valid South African work permit
  • Preference will be given to EE/AA candidates
