Our Values

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

Who You Are

The Justworks 24/7 Customer Support team is one of our greatest customer resources - as an omnichannel 24/7/365 function, it’s a key part of Justworks’ value proposition.

Justworks needs a strong leader to support the scaling and development of the Customer Support function who has a keen focus on service quality and delivery, staffing and scheduling, and efficiency improvement over time. The Senior Manager is responsible for putting a team structure in place that best delivers on our brand promise, while also keeping team members motivated, educated and ready to help customers. Of special importance is the handling of our seasonal “spikes” in customer support caused by milestones in the business (annual health insurance renewals and end-of-year tax activities).

As a Senior Manager of Customer Support, you will help the team understand and coordinate the ideal staffing levels to meet our SLAs and to deliver optimal customer satisfaction. Reporting to the Director of Customer Support, you will be working across the team to optimize for the ideal configurations that drive employee and customer happiness.
