Workstream is a mission-driven company that believes in building premium, modern software solutions for local businesses. There are 2.7 billion hourly workers, who make up 80% of the global workforce, but they've been heavily underserved by technology and deserve better. We help local businesses around you hire, manage, and retain qualified workers.
Our customers include leading brands from multiple sectors, including Burger King, Carl's Jr./Hardee's, IHOP, KFC, and Culvers. At series B, we are quickly expanding our product portfolio. We are backed by legendary VCs and industry experts like Founders Fund, BOND, and Coatue.

  • Incorporate market and competitive research into our hypotheses
  • Take a hypothesis driven, and rapid iteration approach in discovering potential solutions
  • Be relentlessly resourceful and creative in finding solutions to customer problems; the most appropriate solution may be a very low-tech CSV export, for example

  • Love working with customers and users; hungry and relentlessly resourceful in talking with and getting feedback from users
  • Empathetic and precise communication, written and verbal – ability to influence people across cultures and geographies
  • Plus if you have experience working in local businesses (i.e. restaurants, retail), even if it’s that one part-time job back in high school
  • Plus if you have experience working with offshore and remote engineering teams
  • Plus if you have experience with one or more of the following products: HRIS, Time and Attendance, Scheduling, Payroll

What We Offer:
