Everyday Speech is a leader in Social-Emotional Learning. Primarily a teaching solution for public schools, our Social-Emotional Learning Platform (SELP) provides educators with curriculum materials for students of ALL ages across special education and general education classes. Our curriculums teach students the strategies and life skills they need to regulate their emotions, solve problems, cope with the stresses of modern life, and interact with the world around them. Our platform is used by 25,000+ educators at public schools and private educational institutions around the world.
Everyday Speech is right for you if:
You care about making a positive impact.
End each day knowing that your work had a direct impact on the well-being of hundreds of thousands of at-risk students across the world. Project success means more than just shipping features – it means improving the lives of students and educators.
You value being a part of a company that takes care of its team.
Not only do we have extremely happy team members, we also have incredible perks. Participate in our health/wellness and retirement benefit offerings, and between having every other Friday off (3-day weekends!) after you’ve been with us for 90 days, plus our 3 weeks of PTO, 8 fully-customizable chosen holidays, and a sick policy that focuses on your wellness and healing, you’re looking at 50+ days off a year – that elusive work-life balance is an actual thing here.
You want to work for a true, remote-only company.
We’ve never had an office and never will. Our team is spread across 8 countries and 4 continents. We take remote work seriously and know how to support a distributed team. We give you the flexibility to work in a way that’s best for you, but still have high standards and accountability.
You want to join a startup that is seeing massive growth.
We’ve expanded from 5 to 60 full-time team members in just 4 years! As a fully bootstrapped company, our growth is organic and sustainable. Our focus is delivering value to students and educators, not paying back investors.
In this role, you will:
As a member of the Product Department, the Senior Product Manager will be responsible for the effective management of our product pipeline. This includes having broad project oversight of the work of the 3 Product Managers on the team, providing redundancy for PMs and employing systems thinking to identify overlaps in their work. Beyond individual projects, you’ll be responsible for implementing new methodologies and tools (ex. Scrum and Jira) that make the work of the team more efficient. Once the process is built out, the Senior PM will be responsible for operational compliance for all steps of the product build process (Process Czar). Lastly, the Senior PM will be responsible for running product stand-ups and prioritization meetings to ensure the department of 16 has total alignment.
We’ve scaled quickly as a company, which has left gaps in our Product Development process. We’re looking for somebody to come in and add a layer of organizational maturity to our ambitious and rapidly growing product organization.
Skills: Product management, Scrum methodologies, strategic systems thinking, team coordination, technical spec writing, cross-functional communication, time management, task delegation.
In the short term (the first 3 months), you’ll get up to speed quickly on our existing pipeline and start to diagnose the challenges. The team is ambitious, hard working and excited to learn, but up until now is missing the framework needed to truly reach their potential.
Key responsibilities include:
The work you do will have a direct impact on the well-being of hundreds of thousands of at-risk students across the country and the world.
In the Long term, you will own the product pipeline, creating guidelines and processes that operate without reliance on any one individual. Serve as a leader on the Product Team, the person that individuals go to with the toughest process decisions and questions.
Key responsibilities include:
What We’re Looking For:
This role is right for you if…
You have at least 5 years of Product Management experience and are ready for the next challenge
We’re looking for someone who can bring prior experience from an established product organization. Our product team has doubled in size over the past year, so we’re looking for somebody who can hit the ground running due to past experience.
You are an expert in building processes and systems
Rather than putting out fires, you put your focus into preventing fires in the first place. You have strong gap-detection skills and are an expert at building systems that allow people to do their best work. You are skeptical of buzzwords and the latest trend in product management — instead you see Product Management Methodologies as a means to a larger goal.
You are ambitious, pragmatic and not afraid to lead projects
We believe in giving everyone autonomy. You won’t feel like a cog in a machine at Everyday Speech. From day 1, you’ll have opportunities for personal and professional growth.
You’re a natural communicator
Whether it is through written messages, project specifications, or over Zoom meetings, you convey your ideas clearly and with intention.
You want to work with a close-knit team of talented professionals
You’ll be surrounded by a top-tier team of designers, developers, and creative talents.
Salary: $135,000 USD
