American agriculture is stuck in the past. Farms rely on spreadsheets, filing cabinets, and archaic software built decades ago to recruit, manage, and pay their workforce. Seso is addressing this problem by building the first end-to-end recruiting and workforce management platform for the industry.

Seso’s mission is to build the premier platform for agribusiness to hire and manage their workforce and improve the lives of agricultural workers. We are addressing American farmers’ biggest pain point - access to qualified labor - through a software-enabled labor solution that automates the H-2A visa. Our comprehensive HR platform not only streamlines and automates the H-2A program, but helps agribusiness seamlessly integrate their efforts across recruitment, onboarding, payroll, and insurance while providing workers access to financial services for the first time.

Seso has raised over $50M from Tier I investors including Index, Founders Fund, NfX and BOND, and has been recognized with awards like Forbes Rising Stars and Andreesen Horowitzs’, American Dynamism 50.

We’re looking for a Payroll Implementation Manager who will play an integral role in designing, building, and scaling our payroll implementation experience. As one of the first dedicated payroll implementation experts, you will work closely with our product and engineering teams to design a repeatable process and then successfully scale the payroll product. You will work directly with some of our largest customers to prepare them for long term success. As an early hire, you will have unparalleled opportunity for ownership and growth within the company.

  • Own the relationship with customers as they work toward going live on Seso payroll. Be their biggest advocate within Seso.
  • Help clients through their first payroll run and make sure they have the knowledge to run future payrolls independently

  • Manage client expectations - Serve as client advocate within Seso to resolve any concerns that may detract from an optimal client experience

  • Experience building playbooks from scratch and scaling systems & processes
  • Strong project management skills (organized, flexible, and can juggle multiple projects/priorities in a very fast-paced environment)
  • Ability to communicate at all levels of an org -- internally and externally - executive to individual contributor
  • Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to build relationships, demonstrate empathy, and influence decision making
  • Ability to prioritize customer needs, dig into pain points, problem solve with customers, and clearly communicate product needs to product and engineering teams
