Software Product Management Analyst - ( 2107823 )
We are the world’s learning company with more than 24,000 employees operating in 70 countries. We combine world-class educational content and assessment, powered by services and technology, to enable more effective teaching and personalized learning at scale. We believe that wherever learning flourishes so do people.
We seek a Product Manager to join a highly collaborative and fast-moving team dedicated to building the next generation of immersive digital learning and practice tools within higher education. These high-intensity, high-profile initiatives demand a high degree of flexibility and willingness to work hands-on to achieve aggressive release targets with significant market potential.
As a product manager, you are a bridge between the product development organization and customer-facing product stakeholder teams. This position is focused on building flexible and scalable capabilities that support many of the product applications in the Pearson portfolio.
Rather than working on any one user experience, you are working on the core learning services and capabilities that can support many different user experiences. You work with other product managers to define and scope the necessary capabilities, and you partner with software developers to scope, prioritize, implement, and rapidly deliver them. This means a modular, flexible, and interoperable approach to development is required. Seamless integration with student workflows, whether integrating with an LMS or consumer software, will enhance the value of Pearson products. Pearson is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer and a member of E-Verify. All qualified applicants, including minorities, women, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
