Job description

User research, data analysis, product strategy considerations, internal and external workshopping, and continuous dialogue with the head of platform (one of two co-founders), our designers and developers, will be some of your main activities. You will perform these as you prioritise the next product steps, and shape and validate solution proposals. You will then work closely with designers to develop these solutions. You will help ensure a data-driven approach in our product development so that we solve the right problems, and solve them well.
Beyond the above, you will also prioritise our backlog, be the primary product expert, and own the bug handling/prioritisation. You will also need to coordinate with other teams such as marketing, sales, and customer success about product releases and user communication.
To work well in the role, you should be a master thinker and doer. You have a strong interest in products and the technology behind them. You like to challenge yourself with how much value you can deliver to end users. You understand the balance between non-opinionated product development and moving forward quickly. You rapidly understand complex dependencies and you love data as you know that it holds the truth.
You appreciate smart, dedicated colleagues that truly care about you, about the product, and about its users. You are execution-focused but also like having fun at work.
You enjoy the biggest of challenges. The idea of being part of a small team tasked with building and designing the global future of learning products is exciting to you.
