Why work with us?

Lidia Oosthuizen, technical team lead

When I joined as a developer I did not see my leadership potential; but my managers have empowered me and provided training, mentoring and support. I now head up a software engineering team. IG not only gave me career growth, but helped me to become a better version of myself.

Miguel Puig Garcia, front-end developer

The IT team has great camaraderie and varied expertise, so we’re always helping and learning from each other. We hold regular demos of work in progress, where we share knowledge and find the best solution for each job.
