Rubberstamp is a story within a story in our Karoo Tech Hub
The work culture is rather unique; an out of this world kind of experience. Workmates are warm, welcoming and very accommodating. All processes inter-weave; the synergy of everything is just incredible including all the facilities at work and the liberating work environment they provide.
For instance, Rubberstamp’s morning meetings ensure all company employees are jagged up and in the loop of everything happening in the company. Hey, where on earth would you get an opportunity to speak with the company CEO on a daily basis? Isn’t that pretty awesome!
The town, Somerset East, in which Karoo Tech Hub is situated, is small, quiet and beautiful. The view of the mountain at the back of the Tech Hub is just breathtaking. That's a great sight for those in love with nature. The Tech Hub has a state of the art movie-theater and movies are screened every second Saturday.
There is also a bar, table tennis and basketball hoop. All this makes the Karoo Tech Hub a fun and thrilling place to work at. In a nutshell, the Tech Hub is the place where employees can be free to be themselves. The Karoo Tech Hub is the most radical thing happening in town!!!
A few things that make Karoo Tech Hub such an incredible place:
Boer maak ‘n plan
Directly translated from Afrikaans, it means "A farmer makes a plan". It's a common saying in South Africa, that means: think on your feet and devise a new way of looking at something, be resourceful and make a plan. It is Rubberstamp.io’s work motto and we are very proud of it.

Great Work Environment
There is everything for everyone, a kitchen with an espresso machine for coffee lovers, a fridge, a microwave and other kitchen mod cons. A lounge with a library, a bar down stairs with a table tennis next to it, a basket ball front area, a VR headset and a braai area; all this make people work while taking small breaks in between to refresh their minds. Taking a break once in awhile is the key to success. The Cinema room puts the icing on top of the cake.
