As a Group Product Manager, you’re most passionate about building and developing product managers. You are able to quickly establish trust with individuals on your team and company-wide, relish in performance coaching conversations, communicate well to many audiences, and are comfortable making decisions on behalf of your team and the company. As a leader of Product Managers, you will use your strong product management background and in-depth understanding of the K-12 space to support and coach your team as they develop their short and long term product strategies, ensuring our solutions provide a unified experience and drive toward our company vision. Every decision you’ll make will be on behalf of your team and our users.

  • [PM Fundamentals] You will be the ultimate example of the GoGuardian Product Manager. You will make sure that everything your team does is user-centric. You will make sure that GoGuardian continues to experiment and learn, challenging the status quo and validating all ideas with data. You will be extremely collaborative, working with other teams to provide an excellent product experience across GoGuardian, both internally and externally.
  • [Product Strategy] You will work with Product Leadership and your team to define and execute the product strategy and roadmaps alongside the company’s vision. You will conduct market research and competitive research and share the results with your team.
  • [Product Operations] You will assist with designing and implementing processes that help increase productivity, communication, product value, and impact. You will constantly re-evaluate tools and processes to make sure they are adding value for your team.

Exciting!

The vibe is simultaneously feels relaxed and open, and like everywhere you look, people are solving difficult problems

Terence

Director, Customer Success

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our vision brings tall challenges; one of which is finding ways to sift through nearly insurmountable amounts of data, finding the important nuggets of information, then surfacing it to the right people. By using a combination of machine learning and cutting-edge data science (really), we're building better products for our users.

Zach

Senior Designer

What does career growth look like on your team?

Career growth is something that is talked over, thought through and planned out in open conversation and full collaboration between the team members and the manager of the team. It is clearly defined, from the very first day, as a line connecting your current areas for improvement to when they become areas of excellence.

Yola

Data Scientist

What are some things you learned at the company?

Come in with an open mind, and you will find yourself in a breeding ground for self-discovery. By being given a high level of autonomy to do meaningful work, I have learned what it means to be authentic, lean into my fears, find my voice, build trust, and experience the greatest joy that life has to offer—connecting with others!
