There are lots of “Ed Tech.” companies out there, each with their own vision of how to impact education. The issue is, many of them don’t really have the opportunity to meaningfully impact the most important “lever” that improves student outcomes, teachers! At BloomBoard, we are dedicated to reforming educator professional learning via micro-credentialing, some of the most important work in education today. If you don’t believe us, ask our investors, Learn Capital, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and many others.

At BloomBoard, product management starts with a passion for making a lasting impact on education. Educator success is fundamental to our DNA at BloomBoard, so our customers and users come first in everything we do. Product management at BloomBoard starts with an ability to truly listen to market feedback, and develop requirements to make users’ experience exceptional. From initial brainstorming to final launch and beyond, working collaboratively across teams including engineering, visual design, marketing, partnerships and more, is key to your success! Our talented team and commitment to product excellence allow us to continually deliver effective, compelling experiences that enable educators to truly “move the needle” in their own growth, and ultimately in their students’ outcomes. We are looking for experienced Product Managers to lead the charge in delivering these outstanding experiences to our users!

Your Role in BloomBoard’s growth:

  • Own the roadmap for BloomBoard’s new, next generation learning platform: gather market/user feedback, prioritize, develop, and launch new initiatives, features, etc.
  • Deeply understand and advocate for the needs of our constituencies on the platform
  • Solve large, complex problems by developing innovative and creative solutions that address user needs and align with broader product strategy
  • Produce clear, thorough written specifications for all feature functionality and user flows
  • Collaborate with visual designers to create innovative, intuitive, compelling user experiences
  • Work with engineers to align technical designs and decisions with product needs
  • Coordinate and drive execution; manage project schedules and work collaboratively across the development organization (design, engineering, QA) to ensure timely delivery of high quality features
  • Anticipate, identify, and communicate project status and risks to key stakeholders, including the senior leadership team
  • Analyze quantitative and qualitative data to inform product decision-making
  • Work closely with Marketing team on product marketing strategy and execution
  • Do whatever it takes to develop features and deliver value to our users

Your Background/Expertise:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science, or a related field
  • 3+ years of product management experience, or a combination of product design and project management roles; strong track record of delivering high quality, efficient, creative solutions to tough problems
  • Exceptional analytical reasoning, problem-solving, and creative thinking skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communicator, with an eye to clarity and conciseness
  • High degree of user empathy for teachers and learners, understanding how they will interact with a product and what will and won’t appeal to them
  • Excellent project management and organizational skills, with proven experience leading multiple complex projects simultaneously
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work across teams to make things happen
  • Curiosity, open-mindedness, and an unfailingly positive attitude
  • Interest in K-12 education and driving solutions that impact our teachers and their student’s success!
  • Competitive salary, equity and benefits
