Engineering Managers at Justworks lead a team of Software Engineers. They work closely with our Designers and Product Managers to develop products that delight our users and make complex problems simple.
The Core Web team is responsible for improving and maintaining how we use frameworks and tools (Rails, React, our design system Milo, etc.) that power the web experience for our customers, and defining the strategy for how we use these across the organization. The Core Web team enables the product-focused engineers to focus more on product and domain challenges, and less on the details of scale, security, performance, and availability.
