Teachable is looking for an experienced Product leader to deepen our ongoing commitment to helping our customers build and operate their small knowledge-based businesses.

In partnership with a Director of Engineering, you will be responsible for the features and functionality in our platform we lovingly call “Core”. This encompasses everything from managing knowledge content (online courses), student enrollment, customer management, assignments / quizzes, interaction capabilities, interoperability and more.

Our development teams are structured into cross-functional Product Engineering pods each consisting of 4-6 engineers (including an engineering lead or manager), a Product Manager, a Product Designer. You will oversee multiple pods spanning customer-facing feature development, supporting your engineering leads and managers and ensuring the successful execution of their initiatives and operations.

On the strategic level you will be responsible for developing the overall direction and roadmap for our Core product capabilities in alignment with your engineering partners, and other internal departments. You will also be expected to continue building your team’s capabilities as your area of the business grows by hiring the right people and structuring the teams to be as effective as possible.

You are also expected to partner with the VP of Product and other Director-level leaders in the Technology organization to build towards our shared vision and strategy, and develop the Core crew’s strategy as a key leader. You are not expected to do hands-on Product Management as a core responsibility. Your first and foremost responsible for coaching and guiding very capable individual contributor Product Managers to fulfill their responsibilities at their full potential.

This position reports into the VP of Product.

Well over 40,000 solopreneurs and small businesses trust us with their small businesses and we intend to keep working harder and harder to help them run their businesses successfully and effortlessly. Hopefully with your assistance.

  • People management of individual contributor Product Managers in the Core crew, including mentorship and career development.
  • Connecting the dots between R&D capital allocation and financial results.
  • Collaborate with the rest of Product Engineering leadership to ensure we’re building towards a unified product vision with uniform methodologies.
  • Keep the Core crew’s primary partners informed, engaged and excited about the development of our Core offering.
  • Bridge tactics and strategy, and connect the dots between the execution of multiple cross-functional Product Engineering pods.

What We’re Looking For:

  • A Product leader with a proven track record both as a solid individual contributor, and more strategic leader
  • At least 5-10+ years of experience in software products, preferably with the software-as-a-service business model
  • A people manager who has managed teams of at least 3-5 highly skilled experts successfully
  • Strong domain knowledge of business workflow and content products and at least 3-5 years of experience working in a Product Management / leadership capacity in them
  • Experience working in growth stage ($10MM - $100MM ARR) companies
  • Solid financial and business strategy skills, and a willingness to dive into a profit & loss statement to drive strategy, even while keeping the customer as their primary focus
  • Thrives in ambiguity and can independently make forward progress in situations when given minimal guidance

An Insider's view of Teachable

What are some social events your company does?

At the end of every summer we host a company retreat in upstate New York. It's a multi-day event with color war style games and is a great way to build connections across the company and get to know people outside of the office.
