Senior Product Manager - Payroll (f/m/d)

About us

Enabling Better Organizations.

Personio is a fast growing HR SaaS start-up based in Munich. It offers a holistic HR and applicant management software designed for companies with 10 to 1000 employees. Personio plays a critical role in making the day-to-day operations of more than 700 HR teams more efficient and transparent. We are a bunch of fun, international people striving to build the leading one-stop HR platform in Europe.

The Role

At Personio we are on the amazing journey of becoming the leading HR platform in Europe. We, in the Payroll Domain, know people like to say: It's not rocket science. But sometimes it just is. The same goes for Payroll. It has been there for some time, there is a way to do it, just as it has always been done. There are rules and regulations, customers and stakeholders.

But we just know that there is also another way to do it. A new way to do it. A great way to do it. The Payroll Domain is on a mission to build a smart payroll solution that customers across Europe rely on to save money and time.  In our vision, the future of payroll is one where HR Managers delegate complicated and manual tasks, gain peace of mind and focus on what really matters: people.

Like all Personio tribes, we are a cross-functional group of engineers, designers, and product managers from many different nationalities and backgrounds, spread across different locations and we continue to grow in 2021. Join us and help shape the future of Payroll for millions of customers/employees across Europe
