About Casebook PBC
Originally incubated by the Annie. E. Casey Foundation, Casebook PBC is the developer of the patent-pending, award-winning Casebook platform. Developed in close partnership with human services practitioners and in continuous use for over 6 years, Casebook is the only person-centric platform built specifically to serve the needs of those that serve others.

Build something that matters
We help people who are at risk. We help the people who are trying to help those people. We accomplish this through multi-channel, user-centered products making up our platform, Casebook. Our long-term objective is to continue developing, selling, and implementing innovative technology for public sector (State & Local government) and private sector human services – from child welfare, to juvenile justice, adult services, mental health, and so on.
The stability of a large company, the financial upside of a start-up
Casebook serves a broad market of public and private sector human services agencies with their business-critical technology which translates into longer term, more stable contracts and employment. However, as a for-profit public benefit corporation, we can offer equity and financial upside that is more indicative of technology start-ups.
Help us foster an ecosystem of better technology for government
Our goal is to make the highly regulated world of government operational technology as usable and enjoyable as consumer web-based products – so that government can gather and utilize reliable data in order to manage its operations and improve its ability to serve constituents.
Our ideal Product Manager candidate is smart, humble, multi-faceted, and comfortable wearing a variety of hats.
Human services policy is extremely complex, so a talent and enthusiasm for regulatory complexity, data, deep workflows and an appreciation for the diverse needs of system-wide stakeholders is essential.
