Our Values

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

Who You Are

Justworks is seeking a Senior Product Manager to work on a nascent product and budding team. We released a minimally viable product at the end of 2022, and now we're building on those foundations. This is an opportunity to build a product at its core, and shape processes that can evolve with a growing team. Product Managers shape priorities by looking wide and understanding contexts across teams. You’ll also be expected to identify areas requiring depth and, as a Senior Product Manager, own the resulting discovery and delivery of multi-feature projects. With an ear in so many spaces, Product folks are well-positioned to problem-solve and enable others’ success.

For this role, we’re looking for a Product-minded individual who can self-direct and lead projects that directly achieve broader milestones. You’ll simultaneously work “in the current sprint” and 6 months in the future – shepherding full verticals from discovery to delivery.

his position is based out of the Justworks Labs office (Chelsea, Manhattan), where we focus on innovation and future horizons.

  • Perform other related duties as assigned
