Our Values

If this sounds like you, you’ll fit right in.

Justworks is seeking a Senior Product Manager to help build out our employment insurance programs. Justwork’s mission is to help businesses grow with confidence, and as such, we provide access or streamline the process for remittance of a set of business insurances, like Workers Compensation, Unemployment Insurance, Liability Insurance, and so on. The Employment Risk and Insurance team’s goals are to make the process for managing these insurances as seamless as possible for customers and Justworks’ internal teams, across all 50 states. 

Product Managers are accountable for setting and executing on a vision and strategy that meets the needs of customers and the business. 

This is a new and exciting role for Justworks, and the right candidate will have an opportunity to lay the groundwork and operate in a fast paced, new white space with support across the business.
