You’ll empathize with and prioritize the content needs of teachers, students, and buyers in order to design, test, and scale the best content production solutions for the K-12 Specials market across the country (and around the world). From idea to launch, you’ll evaluate and manage products in your portfolio to simultaneously move the needle in education and achieve Newsela’s business objectives. You’ll be a key player in helping design, test, and scale our content products to meet our user needs.
Why You’ll Love This Role:
Your work will directly impact the classroom experience of our +26M users as you help to build products that are engaging, accessible, and aligned to teaching standards in your subject area. You’ll get to work closely with end users and buyers to deeply understand their needs and challenges, and then own the testing of new solutions. As a true cross-functional problem solver, you’ll partner with an array of teams across content, operations, designers, and UX researchers to build a platform that inspires and delights our users.
Why We’ll Love You:
You have 3 years experience in market analysis, and are comfortable surveying and interviewing users to develop in depth quantitative and qualitative insights that drive product recommendations and development. You’re inquisitive and thoughtful, with an adept ability to pinpoint the crux of a problem and use data to build a solution while advocating for our users. You know how to balance passion with patience, and leverage your communication skills to inform product roadmap based on user and buyer needs. You’re excited to become a subject-matter-expert in whatever problem is at hand, and inspire your team to become equally passionate about solving a given problem.
