Life in Helena:

Get a Job Life

Yes, we offer a competitive salary and benefits. But that’s just part of the story. Most of us at Montana State Fund believe that the real benefit of working here is the value that comes from having a truly balanced life. That means time for friends – and the opportunity to make more. Time to hear your favorite house band play and cheer at every school ball game. And backyard access to all the natural treasures that make Montana such a special place. It adds up to a way of working and living where you’ll find yourself energized, daily, to continue our mission of helping injured employees and championing workplace safety.

Helena is the heart of Big Sky Country. A place where people with purpose work to make this a greater state. A place to start a family. A place where old remnants of the 19th-century gold rush stand next to chic coffeeshops and bustling taprooms. A growing city still dwarfed by the mountains that surround it. A place where “stuck in traffic” still means “home in 5.” Work at Montana State Fund, and that’s exactly the kind of place where you’ll live.
