We are looking for a Product Success Manager

As a Product Success Manager in our Product team, you’ll be at the heart of making learning applications that are used and loved by people all over the world!

You’ll be responsible for understanding what’s happening in our language learning apps, and you’ll play a key role in figuring out what to do next to make them even better.

As a key member of the didactics performance team, you will work closely with the didactics and product teams. You will be a bridge between the didactics team and our analytics department – keeping the needs of the product and the business in sync and helping us make the right decisions, in the right way, at the right time

You Will:

  • Be a major stakeholder in the short-, mid- and long-term strategy for our content and learning features
  • Combine quantitative and qualitative analysis to monitor product performance, fine-tune and increase activity, learning engagement and learning success
  • Work closely with our product, analytics and engineering teams
  • Look beyond our current products, features and platforms to identify key trends, opportunities and risks
  • Be an expert on industry trends and the competitor landscape to help evolve our thinking

Your Profile:

  • Passion for language learning and a solid understanding of the industry. You’ll love online/mobile products, and you’ll be motivated by figuring out how to use data to make them better
  • You’ll have a talent for building strong professional relationships, and your influencing and communication skills should stand out from the crowd
  • Prior experience in an industry with short implementation and iteration cycles – if not edtech, then e-commerce, gaming or online products/services
  • Highly analytical nature, with experience of data-driven decision making and business models
  • Ability to translate results of analyses into insights
  • Good understanding of statistics, and the ability to interpret these with confidence and drive through your recommendations
  • Some initial leadership and mentoring experience would be a plus
  • You’ll be a self-starter with the ability to build rapport with cross-functional teams thanks to a collaborative working style and strong interpersonal skills
  • You’ll be curious and want to get to the bottom of a problem and truly understand its causes and effects
