We are giving educators all the tools they need to more easily personalize education and improve student outcomes, but in a way that works easily with their current systems and teaching approach.

As a Director, Product Management at Schoology, we’ll ask you to leverage context from prospects, customers, partners, internal stakeholders and your own experience to build and maintain a product roadmap that makes rational tradeoffs between these competing concerns.

  • Lead our mobile product strategy across iOS and Android by finding the best opportunities for Schoology to enhance how it reaches millions of instructors and students through our mobile apps across phones and tablets

To succeed in the position, you will have:

  • 7+ years of software product management experience
  • Experience working as a product manager on an enterprise, customer facing, SaaS platform
  • Experience owning and developing product strategy, with strong process for setting goals, roadmap planning and business case justification with key stakeholders
  • Examples of key product decisions you have made, how you made them, who the stakeholders were, what the impact was, and how success was measured
  • Natural ability to decompose large problem spaces into actionable decisions and recommendations for key business stakeholders
  • Experience incorporating metrics/data into the planning process and measuring success
  • Exceptional organizational, written and oral communication skills
  • Exceptional critical thinking and analytical skills, with the ability to quickly understand complex systems/data
