SimplePay’s purpose is to pick a fight against mediocrity. We need to do our part to make people feel that we care - because we do. A lot. We’ve made it our mission to make this world more human and we’re looking for enthusiastic people to help us continue the fight.

Our 28,000+ customers (businesses in South Africa, Ireland, Hong Kong, and Singapore) need to feel our appreciation in every interaction with us - and for this role in particular, through thoughtfully written documentation and easy-to-follow online materials designed to make understanding payroll on SimplePay seamless! 

This role requires a quick learner who is passionate about upskilling others via scalable teaching materials for a wide (and international) audience.  As we expand our global presence, you will also gain substantial insight into the legal, procedural and technical aspects impacting payroll in various countries. While instructional design within the payroll field specifically is not a requirement, exceptional analytical and numerical ability will be needed in order to succeed in this role.
