Software Engineering Graduates 2019

Position Type: Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town
Salary: Market Related
Position Overview


Every year we take on some of South Africa’s brightest university graduates, who join us with a mix of engineering, science and commerce degrees. Our Graduates, when joining us participate in an ongoing training programme, structured to accelerate their careers.

Some of our Senior Managers, Team Leads, Tech Leads and Solutions Architects joined Entelect as Graduates - so the idea of taking in graduates is at the very core of who we are and what we believe in.


Don’t worry, it's not physical, we have plenty of that in the social clubs that we offer our staff! Boot Camp takes place in January each year. It’s designed to immerse Software Engineering and Business Analyst graduates into real-world software development. By the time our graduates have moved through the 6-week programme, they have been exposed to several languages and cutting-edge frameworks, which are actively being used in the industry.  We recently interviewed our previous graduates who experienced Boot Camp and these videos can be viewed on our social media platforms. 

Training, learning and mentorship are part of our DNA. We incorporate learning into every aspect of the job, through working alongside some of South Africa’s best talent – people who are dedicated to learning from, and teaching each other continuously.

Outside of the day-to-day work, our extensive range of learning programmes are structured to help our engineers grow; this could be anything from an in-depth course on Java Spring, which would be covered over several days, to a teaser on the latest Single Page JavaScript Framework, covered in an hour, over pizza and beer.

We have structured the training to cater for different learning styles. There are options for self-study training, group-based training, formal and informal learning, and if there isn't anything suitable for you, then we encourage you to find what works and we will look at sponsoring it.
