Challenging the best to get uncomfortable

PriceCheck is hiring
In a recent article featured on FastCompany, Pinterest Founder Ben Silbermann elaborated on why the best talent goes after adventure and not success. He was quoted as saying, "I think the thing that I've learned is that really great people, they actually want to work on hard problems."

When asked what he loves most about working at PriceCheck, Conrad Strydom, technical team leader, said: "It's awesome building products that make a difference to people's lives, help them make informed buying and shopping decisions and ultimately make their lives better. We have some of the best minds in the business and there are a multitude of opportunities to learn and grow everyday."

It was Jim Rohn who first said, 'If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.' PriceCheck is hiring, and we're looking for the best, especially those seeking a unique challenge.

"We believe that the people who are doing the actual work make the best product decisions. We take great pride in hiring top talent from a variety of disciplines and bringing people together with one simple directive: collaborate and create.''
