Careers & Job Listing

why join STT?

At Securities Trading Technology, our greatest investment is our employees. The strength of our business and ultimately our systems are a reflection of the people we hire. We believe that by building up our employees to include the best people and develop their skills, then the systems developed and support given from those people are of the highest quality and performance.    

The work environment at STT is one that can be explained as “laid-back intensity”. Intellectually stimulating work and challenging deadlines, with a laid back and fun atmosphere with flexible hours. The culture is young and energetic but hard working and committed at the same time. By creating an open, laid-back and young atmosphere we found it helps with productivity, skills development and effectiveness in our employees.

Reinforcing the belief that our people are our greatest investment, in early 2013 our team here at STT started a bursary and internship programme for final year students at South African Universities. The aim is to provide our bursary and internship students with the advantage of acquiring industry knowledge and to learn and develop their skills in a more practical and advantageous way. This will help them to secure their future career in the industry. 

Apart from our bursary and internship programme, here at STT we are constantly looking for new employees to help add that “something extra” to our continually growing company. Software development and support is a challenging, ever-changing environment which requires young, energetic individuals who:

Work hard
Enjoy working in a challenging environment
Bring a new and different perspective to the company
Are eager to learn
Are team players.
