OUR DEPARTMENTS: BE READY FOR TOMORROW


CODING

Yesterday it was smartphones, today smartwatches, tomorrow smart-eyes, -ears, -and connected minds. Where ever you look, technology is integrating into our lives, and bodies. Our world is connecting physically, digitally, and biologically. Coders are the master builders of this brave, new, interconnected world.


Copy may be writing, but copywriting isn’t just about words. It’s about playing with ideas. Whether it’s the instructions for a sex toy or the inauguration speech for a president, copywriters create meaning, deliver a message, and call an audience to action.

DATA

Data Science is the job of the future. Using computer science and applied statistics, data scientists find valuable patterns where other people just see noise. Harvard Business Review says Data Scientist is "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century," and we agree. It’s a rare combination of interesting challenges and high-value opportunities. Data skills are a superpower, and with great power comes great job responsibilities.


DESIGN

Design is not a visual art, we believe it's a collaborative process. We solve problems by understanding our users and working with them to prototype and test the best solutions. Whether your interest is in user experience and interfaces, graphical, or motion design, if you can imagine it, you can design it at Umuzi.


MULTI MEDIA

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, is a story. Whether you’re sitting around a fire or watching the latest Hollywood 3D blockbuster, storytelling is our most powerful means of communication. The skill of storytelling is increasingly in demand as organisations realise its power to connect and communicate.


STRATEGY

The world is becoming more complicated and interconnected. To thrive, every organisation needs to be more strategic and human-centered. In our strategy department, we develop business analysts and future product owners with a focus in digital strategy and user experience design.
