How Psybergate Aims To Provide World Class Software Mentoring. Psybergate is a South African software, solutions and skills company formed in 1999 and based in Johannesburg. The company mentors Psybergate and Client graduates in Java Foundations. It also mentors intermediate developers in various technology and professional development areas. Psybergate prides itself in developing, supporting and hosting software solutions and mobile applications that meet client requirements using industry best practices. The company augments client software development teams with skilled project managers, business/systems analysts, programmers and testers, amongst other software skills. It also provides niche technology and management consulting services. Psybergate has a strong footprint having consulted, provided resources, built and supported software for various private and public sector institutions. Psybergate is a founding partner of the Johannesburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE).
Psybergate is run by Fazel Mayet, who serves as the company’s Chief Executive Officer, and Chris Naidoo, who serves as the Technical Director. As the original founders of Psybergate, both Mayet and Naidoo remain closely involved with everyday operations and continually engage with all employees on a one-on-one basis. The company culture is made rich by these inter-personal connections and deep commitment to proving world-class software through extensive learning and mentoring.
The company’s first offices were located on the 10th floor at Wits University moving a few years later to larger space on the East Campus. By 2006 Psybergate had grown to 22 employees and, in 2007 it acquired a Cape Town based company, with its main focus being the higher education sector, with North West University as its major client; thus, furthering its connections with the top national universities. In 2003, Psybergate took additional offices at the University of Pretoria, before moving to Parktown in 2007, where they are currently based.
The company was founded by a leadership team with backgrounds in teaching and lecturing, and therefore it was natural progression that Psybergate would build its culture upon the importance of learning and mentorship.
