Computer Science Graduate Position

SimplePay is a fast-growing small business that’s delighting an increasing number of clients every day. In order to keep doing so while we work on taking over the world of payroll software, we’re looking for a graduate who wants to gain experience in agile software development.

The position will have a few core functions but, as we value freedom and innovation, there will be room for growth and development through collaboration with, and mentorship by, other developers. There will also be opportunities to solve problems independently by creating your own solutions.
We are looking for people who are ambitious, hard working and who don’t view their university education as a limit on their ability. A B.Sc in Computer Science would grant you access to this opportunity but if you believe you have the NQF level equivalent then why not take a chance and apply.

NB Please include your most recent academic results with your application.
