We’re looking for a Head of Product, who is passionate about education and technology and an excellent analyst, communicator and organiser of projects and people. The ideal candidate will have 5 years experience working as a product manager, with at least some of that time spent working at a senior level and/or in a growth-stage SaaS business.

You will be responsible for assessing what new features Wordwall needs and ensuring that they get delivered. You will be working collaboratively with the management team and our developers, designers, and user researchers. You will become an expert on both our product and our users, advocating for ideas that will make the biggest difference to our product and steer us away from unimportant work. We will rely on you to bring everyone together to make sure a process is followed and quality is ensured.

Our mission is to make it easy for teachers to create interactive games and worksheets for their students. Our site automates the process of resource design, so teachers can simply enter the content that is appropriate for their class – a list of keywords, definitions, questions or images. Wordwall produces the content in over 60 different templates; for example, gameshow quizzes, crosswords, labelled diagrams and arcade games. It seeks to disrupt the publisher-driven model of paid-for “professionally” made educational content by putting high-quality content creation in the hands of teachers and making that teacher-made content freely accessible through our online community.

We are a small team with big ambitions who work remotely across the world. Our 30 million monthly users are rapidly proliferating. We’ve got a product that works and we’re building for the long-term. We want people who want to stick around, grow with us and help make games-based learning accessible to all.

We are an equal opportunities employer. We support flexible working arrangements – full or part time.

Real applicants only – please do not contact us if you represent an agency.

Requirements

You will have:

  • excellent teamwork skills
  • the ability to positively influence cross-functional teams
  • the willingness to become an expert with respect to the company’s products, its users, and the competition
  • previously translated product strategy into planned work at the highest level
  • laser-focus on results and process, with an eye for detail
  • a passion for education and interactive games

Responsibilities:

  • study the company’s product and users to become an expert on how the product works to cater to our users’ needs and business priorities
  • dig deep into user feedback and analytics data to make a case for new work
  • shape projects into achievable packages of work that meet those needs and use cases
  • keep projects on track for delivery

Benefits

  • $100-110k USD / £70-80k GBP per year
  • 30 days holiday per year
