Software Development Internship at KRS 2016

Khanyisa Real Systems (KRS) was originally called Real Systems and was founded by Steve Mabbutt and Lorraine Steyn in Johannesburg in 1987. Real Systems was renamed KRS in 2000. KRS has been a certified Microsoft Silver Partner since 2007 and is proud to have Silver awards across the competencies of SQL Server, C# and ASP.Net.

The company’s core values are those of honesty, integrity and respect with a firm commitment to innovation, openness and delivery.

KRS now has its head office in Cape Town, South Africa, with other offices in Gauteng. We currently have around 50 IT professionals on our staff, from scrum masters and business analysts to web, mobile and desktop developers.

The internship starts mid-January and runs until the end of February annually.

The programme is facilitated by a team of senior developers, trainers and architects who will provide you with weekly feedback on your progress.

All interns will obtain a certificate of attendance at the end of the internship.
