“None of us is as smart as all of us”

- Ken Blanchard

We are always on the lookout for the right talent to join our family. Here’s what some of our people have to say about us

Makatisoft-Swapoo is a place for continuous learning. The company values our ideas by allowing us to explore and implement the best solutions we could think of. The environment is friendly and we can openly discuss things with our colleagues and even to the management. It helps us reach the best version of ourselves while doing the things we like with the people we love.

Jhesed Tacadena Senior Backend Developer

Makatisoft-Swapoo for me is the estuary of life and work, it’s a perfect fusion. Since working here is so much fun, I can’t even call it work! They say when you do what you love, you won’t work a day in your life. That’s what it is here. If you want to be part of the family be ready to disrupt the world.

Clarence Layba Senior Backend Developer

Makatisoft-Swapoo gave me the opportunity to grow, not only by entrusting us on what technologies to be used, but also the opportunity to explore other software development areas such as research and development in line with User Interface and User Experience. Nowadays, it’s hard to find a company that supports the growth of their employees and Makatisoft-Swapoo has given me this opportunity. Anyone who would want to be in this company would be guaranteed a great working environment, superb teamwork and continuous growth on cutting edge technologies.

Al Mansy Balangue Senior Frontend Developer / UI/UX Developer

MakatiSoft-Swapoo is fun working environment that promotes work life balance. You feel that you are important in this company, not just another “cog in the machine”. MakatiSoft-Swapoo takes care of their employees, all they ask in return is that you always give your best. Since I’ve started here, I have learned so much because they allow us to explore. We also have group learning activities where you can learn with your team all together. We are more than just colleagues here, we become family.
