careers at OneDayOnly

OneDayOnly hold the esteemed title of being South Africa's original daily deals website. Our deals offer excellent discounts, limited supply and are on sale for one day only (hence our uber-creative name). We partner with top brands and key suppliers to be able to offer their products to hundreds of thousands of potential customers through our daily mailer, the website itself and social media marketing. Provided the quality and price is right, we'll sell anything - and that's exactly what makes us so appealing to both buyer and seller. Couple this with the urgency of the deal and it creates a winning formula for a high number of sales in a very short space of time.

But, believe it or not, this website doesn't run itself: we employ a varied assortment of human beings to sell things, buy things, process things, and repair things.

Take a look at the open positions below. If you think you can put up with us enough to get one of these done, email your resume (as a plain text, Word, or PDF attachment) to the address you'll find at the end of the position advertised.

Before you apply, please have a look at this handy "How To Apply For A Job" guide we put together. Your next job may depend on it.

We'll get back to you if we're interested. In maybe hiring you, we mean. Not anything intimate. You seem nice, but we're kinda seeing somebody right now.

Recruitment companies: thank you for sending us a thousand emails. We'll call if we need anything. You can stop emailing us now thank you.

Wait.

Okay sorry, we hope you didn't get too excited there because we're not looking for anybody in specific at the moment.
