Funnily enough - a product manager manages our product, not our people. As a product manager, you're passionate about ensuring that the user takes centre stage. All aspects of their experience matter to you.
As Sumdog's product manager, you'll face unique challenges. We've got a huge spectrum of users: children who can barely read, teachers with little knowledge of computers, and educationalists and system admins in America's largest school districts.
You need to balance their needs. Our apps and website must be intuitive, engaging and stable across the broad range of desktops and devices found in schools. Administrators need fast access to key data points, yet their students must be able to build confidence in the simplest of skills.
It's a huge challenge, and we need a huge talent to make it work. We've already got some of the country's best technical minds; you'll be vital in guiding their work and making it work for our users.
Your key responsibilities will be:
- liaise with other teams in Sumdog to manage our product roadmap
- engage with our users to research and understand their needs
- analyse and understand this research to guide product design
- evaluate, refine and select solutions using iterative user research, often using prototypes
