SimplePay | Ruby on Rails Developers | UTC+4 to UTC+8 | REMOTE | $42k-$60k

SimplePay is online payroll software for South Africa, Ireland, Singapore and Hong Kong. Our software lets thousands of small business owners (and their accountants) run their payrolls without headaches, so they can focus on the challenge of building their businesses

More than half of our developers are now remote, and I’d like to continue the trend.

To find out more about us, check our developer blog ( or about page (

Stack: Our work is back-end-heavy Ruby on Rails and we use PostgreSQL as our data store. We use a bit of Vue.js but believe server-side rendering is still the best default.

Experience: Due to our full pipeline, we can only hire developers who have a few years of Rails experience at this time, or highly experienced polyglots who at least know some Ruby.

Location: UTC+4 to UTC+8 preferred, although we’ll also consider candidates in UTC+1 to UTC+3 if they have the right skills and experience.

Please mail and include a direct link to an open source contribution you’ve made, or an issue you’ve logged, no matter how small.
