Product Manager

Branching Minds - Remote - Full time

A career at Branching Minds is unlike any other. It’s not just what we do that makes BRM a great place to work, it’s who we are and how we do it that makes this place so unique. As a startup we don’t have to play by the rules of traditional organizations. We get to be innovative not just in the solutions we develop for our partners, but also in the way we conduct our business for ourselves. Branching Minds is also a B-corp, which means we get to prioritize our mission > profit, and that the means of getting there are just as important as the ends. In general we err towards self management, transparency, collaboration, initiative, and caring A LOT. We are a team of seasoned educators, learning scientists, and technologists, with a proven track record supporting hundreds of school districts across the US. We provide a comprehensive solution that makes it possible for educators to identify which students need support, why they need it, what to do to help them and how to know that the support is helping students achieve success across academics, behavioral health and SEL (otherwise known as MTSS). What’s even more exciting is we help educators achieve those strong equitable outcomes for kids, while actually saving them time and effort! If you are energized by the idea of using innovation to reimagine education in service of equity -- join our team.
