Job Description

The Role:

Our client is looking for a Director of Product Management to lead our core growth loop. This includes organic user acquisition, conversion, monetization, and user-generated content.

This is a high visibility and impact role: you will own the lion’s share of revenue for the company, in charge of everything from goal-setting to roadmapping, executing, and iterating. You will have several pods and product managers reporting into you to help you achieve the very ambitious yet reachable goals of the company.

You’ll use part strategy, part magic, with lots of experimentation and analysis to drive business outcomes. This is a role that requires business acumen, a focus on customer needs/wants/ desires, and obsession with data to optimize all parts of the funnel, combined with myriad tactical wins to increase user acquisition, conversion, monetization, and user-generated content. You will also have the opportunity to use our artificial intelligence team to understand and optimize our user-generated content.

Here are some ways you’ll make an impact:

·         You’ll lead a Product Management team to accelerate our already-breakneck growth.

·         You’ll own the product initiatives for organic growth, conversion, monetization, and user-generated content.

·         You’ll grow your team substantially and ensure culture and processes are constantly improving—instead of breaking in the process of growing.

·         You’ll collaborate with User Research, Design, Data Science, Engineering, Operations, and AI to achieve our goals.

Are you our next Director of Product Management?

·         You have 10+ years working in B2C companies, ideally on marketplace or aggregator products.

·         You have experience and a track record in optimizing user acquisition channels, conversion funnels, and monetization. Strong plus if you have dealt with user-generated content and AI.

·         You have successfully built up teams from small/mid-size to large, while improving productivity and culture.

·         You have a provable sense of user psychology, and a track-record of using these insights to create great user experiences that also accomplish strong business results.

·         You have the confidence to lead with experience & intuition but validate through data-driven experimentation and user research.

·         You have experience collaborating with research, design, engineering, and analytics to drive growth initiatives.

Bonus Points:

·         You have experience with marketplace products, aggregators, and network effects.

·         You have SEO and AI experience.

·         You have a passion for evolving education to help students graduate.

What We Offer You:

·         Industry competitive salary and stock options

·         Full medical coverage (medical, dental, vision)

·         401(k) program with matching to help you save for the future

·         Educational assistance program to support lifelong learning

·         Regularly planned team events and outings

·         Free lunches twice a week, cafe discount, plus an endless snack and drink supply

·         Commuter benefits, cell-phone allowance, and a free gym membership

·         Opportunity to make a meaningful impact - education technology is revolutionizing the way we learn
