Check is a payroll-as-a-service API that lets you embed payroll directly in your vertical SaaS, HR, or time-tracking platform. Our API abstracts away the complexities of running payroll: tax calculation, remittance, and filing, plus the movement of money between companies and employees. This enables companies to easily build fully integrated payroll products to offer to their customers. We’re proud to share that Check now powers payroll for platforms that together support over 3 million workers across more than 170,000 small and mid-sized businesses.

As the Product Marketing Manager at Check, you'll collaborate closely with our Heads of Marketing, Product, and Sales to craft Check’s product storytelling vision and voice to bring Check’s product vision to market.

  • You can drive an important cross-functional project with a variety of stakeholders
  • You are scrappy and eager to move fast, test, and iterate
