Requirements

The challenge: Product Manager 👩‍🚀👨‍🚀


We’re looking for a product manager who will increase engagement through ownership of a product area. We also want someone who will make our team better, while relishing the opportunity to learn from those already here.

In this role, you will;


  • Learn to craft a narrative using data, user experiences, and strategy to paint a compelling product vision that motivates the team.
  • Align with PMs and other product leaders to build a platform that is consistent, simple, and impacts students every day.
  • Own your product area’s outcomes, understand how they’re aligned and contribute to the company’s goals, and balance both while keeping our users front and centre for the team.
  • Own your outcomes rather than focus on feature requests. Our PMs don't own P/L, they own our product outcomes that will make Aula a successful company.
  • Contribute to the overall sophistication and effectiveness of our PM chapter by sharing your projects and experiences.
  • Learn from other excellent PMs through their experiences.
  • Become a data-informed PM with a vast toolkit to use in any PM situation, making you successful in your career at Aula or a highly sought-after candidate for any company looking for product leadership.
