iOS App Developer, Server Administrator
Yut has a constant eye on our virtual and physical machines. He has been a crucial and valuable member of the family since 2011.
His inquisitive mind, soft manner, and sheer good-heartedness, combined with his concern for user experience have become one of Simple Different's pillars. He is now coordinating the development of SimDif 2.
Yut likes trying out new things in Linux, testing new apps, watching movies, playing guitar, and drinking coffee.
Android App & Yorname Developer
Berm joined Simple Different in 2014. He came here deeply motivated to improve the first website builder on Android. He is known to be both very sharp and cool. Thanks to Berm, the Android App is now the main tool for our users to build their websites.
His main passion out of work is to respond to the endless curiosity of his son.
Behind a joyful personality, Mr. O hides a brilliant mind and a clear taste for structure and organization. He joined the team at the beginning of SImDif2 and his contribution to the creation of the new platform has been invaluable.
When he is not at work, he is an avid follower of technology news and is the proud father of 3 clever kids.
Mai is exceptionally curious, very studious and likes her job. She was a bit bored with back-end development, so she now also delves into the front-end. She has a deep desire to understand and write better code. She left university just a few years ago and is already on her way to becoming a talented full stack developer.
She bought a new car and likes to travel around the region as much as she can.
This beautiful young woman is learning fast. Always eager to understand how things work, she has been showing real competence in many different aspects of the creation of SimDif. Fai is a future full stack talent but also cares about the graphic qualities of her work.
At home she likes to draw and read to improve her English.
Administrative Officer and Company Mom
Ning has been here since the very beginning in 2009, doing the accounts, filing the taxes, helping get BOI status, visas and work permits. And just as importantly Ning keeps everyone happy during difficult times.
When she isn't single-handedly holding the company together, she likes knitting and embroidery. She's also a respected massage therapist.
User Experience and Support
Stéphane joined SimpleDifferent in 2014. Like most members of the team, he is a man of many talents. He's been working in IT for 15 years and is responsible for the Japanese translation and coordinates the work of the other translators.
Stéphane is very close to the user's needs, he answers the hotline and contributes actively to the conception of the future of SimDif.
In his spare time, he likes to play badminton and is actively involved in studying traditional Thai music.
Paul has been part of SimDif twice, joining most recently in 2020. Over the past 20 years the majority of his work has been in Web Development and Digital Communications.
In his work as well as in his personal life you can clearly see his motivation to understand the world on every level, from the concrete to the abstract, and to try and adjust the way he thinks and behaves accordingly.
An inquisitive mind, an open and rigorous way of organizing concepts, and a deep understanding of SimDif’s ethics, make him a wonderful collaborator when it comes to designing our commercial strategy.
In his own words : “Living in Thailand has given me so much: language, music, friends, a new outlook.. Love above all.. and I have been blessed by a loving family back home in the UK also. I'm most grateful."

Simple Different Ethics
The "user first" approach
Part of the Ethics of Simple Different, the company behind SimDif, is to guide its users as they build websites.
SimDif is designed to encourage users to create and organize the content that their readers would like to see: it is also the best way to structure a website for Google.
SimDif is not conceived as a product that people would purchase before they had a chance to understand it.
But what is SimDif actually?
A unique Website Creation App
SimDif is one of the few website builders to be fully functional, with the same features, on a phone, computer, and tablet. This allows you to easily switch from one device to another to edit and publish your site.
SimDif 2 is an app to create full websites, all from a phone without any technical knowledge.
Make a site by adding pages and blocks and then adding content. Blocks make pages, pages make sites.
Who is it for?
SimDif is for anybody that wants to create a website, hassle-free. The majority of users today are small business owners, teachers, students, communities and clubs, entrepreneurs, and people selling services.
Why was it created?
Already available in 13 languages, this service has been designed to be translated. Thanks to BabelDif (a translation tool developed alongside SimDif 2), the app and its guides can be translated into many different languages, by its own users.
The goal is to support as many languages and cultures as possible, especially those that are underrepresented on the internet.
How much does it cost?
There is a free version, and for the first time in the world, a fair PPP indexed price for the Smart and Pro versions. This index is called FairDif and allows to calculate the right price for each country.
Hosting and the guides are free of charge for all site types.
