SimplePay is a Cape Town based software company that’s been simplifying the world of payroll and delighting our clients for nearly ten years now. We’re a small, customer-centric team doing big things every day – we have over 13 000 companies using our system across four regions (South Africa, Singapore, Ireland and Hong Kong).  Our software lets thousands of small business owners (and their accountants) run their payrolls without headaches, so they can focus on the challenge of building their businesses. We’ve been profitable for many years and have never had the need to raise capital.

One of the core principles around hiring at SimplePay is that we’re looking for people with aptitude and drive who are keen to come in and make their mark by owning and growing within their role and their skillset.

 We have fortunately been able to carry on largely unaffected by the pandemic and continue to see solid growth month on month. Because of this we’re looking to add some more experienced talent to our already strong and effective team. You can find out more about us here and if you like the idea of working with this bunch of driven and passionate individuals to simplify and bring joy to our clients, please take a look at our current openings below:

You’ll then get to enjoy our free coffee, crazy assortment of teas, fruit and breakfast cereals, or battle one of our team members on the PS4 or a board game during breaks.
