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 young people to help us continue the fight.
Our 23,000+ customers (businesses in South Africa, Ireland, Hong Kong, and Singapore) need to feel appreciation in every interaction with us - whether it’s a prompt, helpful reply to an email, patient assistance over the phone, thoughtfully written documentation, or a system that shows it was designed with all the care and attention we could muster. At SimplePay, we're people first, employees second, and our Customer Support Team enables us to reflect this daily.
Joining our Customer Support Team in a Level 1 position is a great opportunity for a young individual looking to gain some valuable work experience in an environment with plenty of growth opportunities. We offer full onboarding and training (no prior payroll knowledge required) and give all employees the space and guidance to chart their own course within the business and fulfil their potential.
