Ultimate Guide to Coding Jobs in South Africa

 

To get a job as a coder, you might want to work on a personal project and have a professional look over your code. We’ve compiled the ultimate guide to coding jobs in South Africa.

 

What does a coding job in South Africa entail?

Coding entails translating problems, strategies, and directives into a form that a computer can interpret, known as binary machine code. Coding facilitates communication between humans and computers. Using a computer programming language such as C++, Python, Java, SQL to name just a few, coders convey and relay instructions for the many tasks they need their computers to carry out.

What career opportunities are there for coders in South Africa?

In 2019, Offerzen did a study and found that one in four developers taught themselves. Developers learn to code in university, through tutorials, boot camps, and by doing it themselves. Most software developers who go to college or university to get a degree choose to study Computer Science. What's more intriguing is that a third of developers have degrees in domains unrelated to STEM (business, humanities, and mathematics).

How to get a coding job in South Africa?

Besides having a professional-looking code, you should also look at the company that is  offering work to make sure that it fits in with your values and your salary expectations.. Talk to other programmers and ask them to look over and review your work on social media. Pair programming is a good idea if you've met a good programmer through networking. Pair programming is when a programmer works on a project with another programmer at the same workstation so they can review each others work and swop ideas. Employees are very happy to take on candidates with this kind of experience.

How to become a coder

According to the findings of the Offerzen survey, 72 percent of respondents learned the fundamentals of their craft from online tutorials. Some respondents worked on side projects, and others completed online courses.

Because of the worldwide shortage of qualified software developers, bootcamps have sprung up to fill the void. As a result of the slow rate at which formal education adapts to the evolving nature of the work, many businesses struggle to locate enough qualified applicants.

Coding bootcamps are rigorous training programmes that give students the skills they need to succeed in the coding business. These programmes are designed to give ambitious computer developers and professionals a solid grounding in coding and the confidence to continue their education on the job.

Pros and cons of being a coder

Coding might be tough, but it's also a lucrative profession that often leads to job satisfaction.   Coders may work from practically anywhere with an internet connection. Working under pressure means learning new  ways and adapting to new methods of doing things. Coding software involves doing repetitive operations. Boredom and lack of motivation can result, especially if you prefer novel activities.

Frequently asked questions

Is coding a good career?

Yes. Job satisfaction among coders tends to be high because of the high income they earn and the high regard they receive from the general public.

Are coders in demand?

The IT industry is growing, and there are many jobs available in it. Software Developers and Software Engineers are in demand, and it is expected that the number of jobs for them will grow even more.

How much does a coder earn?

The typical income for a software developer or programmer in South Africa is R 507 000 per year, or R 260 per hour. The starting salary for an entry level employment is R 360 000 per year, while the maximum salary for a highly skilled employee is R 9 000 000 per year.
