If you have a passion for great customer experiences, a desire to contribute to technology the world will rely on, and an uncanny ability to make complex tasks crystal clear, we want to hear from you. Help us help our customers to move confidently with the speed they need in the digital age.

  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment. You love getting things done and doing them well, whether you’re working alone or collaborating with a team. You take pride in your work and hold everything you do to high standards
  • Work with raw content from subject matter experts and architects to produce documentation for our users as well as internal audience
  • Institutionalize a content strategy for ongoing documentation management

The Simpplr Story

In 2014, HR technology leader Workday realized there wasn’t an intranet technology that aligned with its mission—”to put people at the center of enterprise software.” Rather than settle, Workday turned to the founders of Simpplr to develop a modern intranet. And our company was born.

Today, Simpplr partners with leading brands, including AAA, DocuSign, Eurostar, and Columbia University, our customers are achieving measurable productivity gains, increased employee engagement, and retention, and accelerated business performance.

Simpplr is headquartered in Redwood Shores, CA and Gurgaon, India, and is backed by Norwest Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures.
