About our Coders
codeX coders come from a variety of education and work experiences: from matriculants to career changers with more than 10 years of work experience.
Once they’ve completed our program, codeX coders are full-stack agile web developers. Depending on their prior experience, they typically fall into three groups.
- Advanced Novice: the basics of full stack development are in place, they’re ready to join an internship / grad program that will shape their future career. (average salary: R8,000–R12,000 p/m)
- Junior Developers: have a thorough end-to-end understanding, ready to contribute on a product team. (average salary: R10,000–R25,000 p/m)
- Career Changers: bring both their new web dev skills and existing domain knowledge from their previous careers to the companies they join (average salary: R15,000–R30,000 p/m)
Which coding language?
- We’ll contact you for a 15 minute chat via Skype, Hangout, or the phone to discuss a few key questions.
- We’ll match up available candidates for interviews.
- Coders can be hired as interns or juniors, with a probationary period of 3 months before becoming full-time employees.
- Once employed full-time, placement fees are 15% of the coder’s first year salary (12% if hiring two or more coders) or employers can pay off the coders’ loans to codeX.
“codeX is an extremely well-run coding program, led by well respected individuals from the Cape Town web development community. io is honoured to partner with codeX to bring some of their interns into the job market and to expose them to real life coding challenges and exciting work. Well done on spotting some real raw talent.”
Liesel Theron, Senior Account Manager, io
How many coders can you Hire?
We have between 30-40 coders training at a time. The bulk of our coders graduate in early December, but we also have a group ready for work in June. Ask us anytime: our alumni may be looking for their next move.
codeX sponsors get the first right to hire from the graduating coders. Beyond that, coders tend to want to work for people they know, so come do some technical mentoring.
“Finding codeX has been a triumph for us as they consistently produce developers of an incredibly high standard. This has allowed RocketDev (Pty) Ltd to bolster our team with smart, hardworking and professional developers. It is a pleasure to have added these codeX graduates to our team.”
Janine Beard, Director of Development, RocketDev (Pty) Ltd

“As a startup with a small, focused team, it’s extremely difficult getting good technical resources that are well-rounded and able to be a jack of all trades, from fixing their own PCs to being able to do complex technical deployments.
Add to this the stress of the ups-and-downs associated with big wins and some (minor) losses to which a developer in a small team is exposed, and there are not many developers that can tick all of these boxes.
Emanuel is one of those rare people that can do all the above (with a smile on his face). His most important quality is that he will try his utmost to solve a problem on his own and then will ask if he doesn’t know. The last two points are the most difficult to teach most developers (and people in general).”
