Welcome to Byte Orbit! As we enter February, the month of love, we want to share why some people consider Byte Orbit their dream company. Yes, we know this is a big statement but it is true. Our workplace has a unique culture and it’s full of amazing perks! We're excited to show you but let’s first introduce ourselves.

We’re a tech company that specialises in technology and innovation. Our team is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what's possible, and we focus on strategy and design to create groundbreaking solutions. We pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with the latest technologies, and we're constantly striving to be at the forefront of innovation.

We're beyond excited to share with you our company's core values. These aren't just words that we put up on the wall and forget about - they're the guiding principles that drive us forward every single day. As well as a commitment to each other as a team.

Innovation, Impact, Initiative, Self-development, Authenticity, and Reliability. These are the qualities that we believe make for a truly great company culture.

Whether you're a coding wizard, a marketing maestro, or something in between, we want you to know that there's a place for you here. We truly believe that a diverse team is a strong team, and we're always on the lookout for talented individuals who share our values.

Now that you know a little more about what we do, let's take you through some of the perks our team members love.

Are you curious about life at Byte Orbit? We went straight to the source – our incredible team members! We've compiled a list of perks that make Byte Orbit more than just a workplace. From flexible work hours to professional development opportunities, our team also enjoys our free Friday lunches, ping pong rivalries and Friday standups and drinks after work.


Here are just a few of our benefits:

Personal development opportunities

"I've been able to expand my knowledge and skill set which has been instrumental in my career growth" - Tahlea (Digital Marketing Coordinator)

Continuous learning has always been part of our DNA. Everyone in the company is encouraged to participate in designing a development roadmap that will support skills development in line with their interest and career growth.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

We have an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which provides our employees with unlimited access to legal assistance, nutritional and fitness advice, debt assistance and counselling.


We trust our employees and we don’t micro-manage. We expect you to be responsible for your commitments and we allow you the freedom to solve problems, make decisions and deliver your work based on your skills.


"Grateful for a workplace that values not just the work we do, but the moments that make us who we are. Getting your birthday off makes you feel valued, not just as an employee but as a person." - Simoné (Technical Product Owner)

To celebrate your special day, we give you a free day off to relax, recharge, and do something you love.

Byte Orbit Team Appreciation Day

“It's truly heartening to be part of an organisation that prioritises and cares for its employees, going the extra mile to ensure we have the time to relax and recoup.” - Soletu (Software Engineer)

To show appreciation for everyone’s hard work, we give an extra leave day every year to all our Orbiters to relax and recoup.

Tenure travel bonus

To show our appreciation for our employees' loyalty and service, we gift you a R50 000 travel bonus on your 10th work anniversary.

Flexible work hours

“Flexible work hours have allowed me to find the perfect rhythm between meeting my deadlines and enjoying life's simple moments. Such as daily walks or biking with my son. It's a delicate balance, but with a sense of responsibility deeply ingrained in our team, we're thriving, proving that freedom and accountability can indeed complement each other” - Steven (DevOps Engineer)

We allow for flexibility in work hours so that our employees have the freedom to make the most out of their day. We encourage a positive work-life balance and our flexibility allows our employees to use their time as they see fit.

Our commitment to nurturing talent and providing continuous learning means your career trajectory knows no bounds.
