What We Do

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 team doing big things every day – we have over 11 000 companies using our system across four regions (South Africa, Singapore, Ireland and Hong Kong). Our software lets these 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.

Values & Our Culture

We're developer-owned and focused on building great software to provide an awesome customer experience. You can read more about the individuals who make up Team SimplePay here. We're looking for people who share our passion and drive. We're big on humility, so we strive to hire smart people with small egos. Honesty and directness is something else we value highly and we work hard to maintain a culture of transparency where all ideas are heard and acknowledged. We want analytical thinkers and problem solvers who are constantly looking for the next best way to do things and aren't afraid to speak up to make this happen.

A number of our developers are remote and spread around the would but the majority of the business is based in Cape Town in our beautiful Century City offices overlooking the canal and bird sanctuary and we often have meetings outside while walking along the water. There is free parking, free coffee and a crazy assortment of tea as well as fruit and breakfast provided. We also have a strong fun side to balance the hard work, with a number of team members battling it out on the PS4 and board games during breaks.

There is plenty to do and learn as part of our dev team so if you're someone who thrives on a challenging environment and you're looking for personal and professional growth while making the world just a little better each day, then let's get talking!
