If you have development skills but enjoy understanding and specifying requirements just as much, we may have a position for you on our development team. The ideal candidate will be comfortable with getting involved in various aspects of making a great software product, including researching requirements, writing specifications, implementing code and some light project management. As a payroll software company, we need to stay up to speed with legislative changes as well as learn about the legal and procedural requirements for the new markets we’re expanding into.
A tertiary qualification will be beneficial. You will also need strong numerical and written communication skills.
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.
This position will provide you with the following growth opportunities:
• Further improve your skills of turning complex concepts into simple implementations.
• Create rock-solid database designs.
• For the right candidate, leading the development team and taking responsibility for all technical decisions.
Our current stack:
• Ruby 2.3
• Rails 4.2 (upgrade to 5.0 pending)
• PostgreSQL 9.5
• Hosted on AWS
At least 2 years Ruby on Rails experience would be the minimum requirement while having a tertiary education could earn you bonus points.
