SimplePay started with a desire to create, innovate and improve, which permeates everything we do. We’ve brought craftsmanship to payroll software and put the “care” back into “customer care”.

Our system takes the headaches out of payroll for more than 14 000 companies across South Africa, Singapore, Ireland and Hong Kong – allowing them to produce accurate, compliant payroll and submissions with plenty of time left over to focus on what really matters: growing their own businesses.

It’s our mission to make the world more human and manageable and we’re looking for bright and enthusiastic individuals to help us continue the fight against mediocrity. We’re a fun and diverse group of people who enjoy solving problems, simplifying things and a bit of good banter. You can read more about the team here and get some insight into the dev side on our tech blog.

At this point we’d also usually expound on the various benefits of our amazing office location, such as great views, walking meetings, a multitude of teas and coffees, free parking, PlayStation tournaments etc. However, we’re all currently working remotely until it’s very safe to return to the office but when we do all of the aforementioned awesomeness will be reinstated. 

Until then some of the other benefits of joining our team include the peace of mind that we’re not going anywhere anytime soon, a collaborative and growth-oriented team, the scope to chart your own course within a supportive framework and being part of something constantly changing and innovating in order to make the lives of our clients simpler.

Experienced Ruby on Rails Developer

SimplePay and Our Approach to Dev

Did you know that developing business software doesn’t have to be boring?

We love solving thorny business problems with elegant code. That is why our founder, a developer, started the company to begin with.

We use proven infrastructure and frameworks, so that we can focus on well-designed code. We have good test coverage and all PRs have to pass CI before merging.

You’ll be part of a culture of constant feedback and improvement. If you like the thought of growing as a developer (non-technical skills included), you’ll be right at home.

Collaboration is key. You’ll be interacting with the team to hash out features, and all your PRs will be reviewed and discussed.

This role within our product team will help ensure that each of our regions’ products are kept up to date and compliant. You’ll work closely with a variety of team members, from customer-facing and developers to management, and take ownership of the compliance of at least one region’s product. As with all roles within SimplePay, there is ample scope to grow individually and have an impact on the direction of the company.

While the role can be fully remote (within South Africa), ideally the successful applicant will be based in our Century City office.
