At PayrollHero we are proud of our work and want to share it with the business community of Singapore. Over the coming months we intend to release the payroll aspects of our code for free to the public.
That’s right, we are going open source with our Singapore payroll code! Any developer or interested party will be able to scrutinize the code responsible for Singapore Payroll calculations like CPF. PayrollHero’s payroll transparency will allow anyone the opportunity to use our code . It will engage the software community to provide the best possible product to all our clients – this will result with furthering our mission to bring Payroll Accuracy for Singapore Employees.
We write our software using a language called Ruby on the Ruby on Rails Framework (we flew DHH to Whistler in 2004). The Ruby community is a passionate collection of developers who have helped us create the HR Platform we have today. This is our opportunity to give back to the community who helped us get to where we are today.
Not a developer but you are interested in learning more about the quality of our code at PayrollHero? We use a program called code climate that systematically grades every line of code that we write. It helps us to write the best code possible and gives a neutral and outside indication of it’s quality using a GPA system. We don’t release anything less than a 4.0 GPA!
Security important to you? Our code also receives a Security Scan performed every few hours for potential vulnerabilities. When anything is found we immediately act on the alert.
