The Company
At Springboard, we are on a mission to bridge the skills gap by delivering high-quality, affordable education for new economy skills like data, design, and coding Since our inception, we have helped thousands of people around the world launch new careers through a project-based curriculum with 1:1 mentorship from industry experts, aimed at giving students an advantage on the job market.

The Opportunity
As an early Project Manager at Springboard, you will play an invaluable role in our growth story by driving end-to-end planning and execution of course (product) launches and other company-wide undertakings.. Your work will be a mix of solving the company’s highest-priority strategic problems, implementing new initiatives, and supporting a number of teams. You’ll drive a variety of cross-functional projects from concept to completion, by starting with an idea or a deck; owning the timeline; assembling a cross-functional team; and making sure things get done — in short, you’re the conductor of the orchestra, and no two performances are the same! You’ll develop relationships throughout the org, and experience what it’s like to be a part of a high-performing, high-growth startup.

Here’s what your average day might look like:

  • Designing tight project plans and prioritizing your next steps 
  • Running effective meetings with cross-functional collaborators to move projects forward
  • Regularly updating key stakeholders (executives, business-line general managers, team leads) on progress, risks, and changes


  • Have successfully led cross-functional teams to deliver complex projects iteratively with multiple dependencies and constraints, in a highly dynamic and agile environment
  • Have proven your ability to take a product to launch on schedule, efficiently herding many cats at once
  • Possess an entrepreneurial spirit: you take ownership, are proactive, anticipate issues before they arise, and show grit and diligence
  • Can think strategically and break down problems
  • Bring an operations mindset, with excellent organizational skills, detail orientation, and process orientation 
  • Are an expert communicator and collaborator, able to exercise influence without authority 

Bonus points if you have...

  • Previous experience within online education
