DreamBox is looking for a Product Manager who will partner with key stakeholders to drive the next generation of DreamBox’s award-winning, game based studentexperience. The PM is responsible for analyzing data to understand how students are progressing to inform feature iterations to optimize learning.  The ideal candidate is comfortable working with engineers one minute, marketing the next, thrives on analytics, and digs deep on problems to find innovative solutions.

This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a small, rapidly growing company at an exciting time in the development of EdTech.

Right now, even though STEM skills are increasingly important, over 60% of students in Kindergarten through 8th grade are not proficient in math at their own grade-level. As a society, we need to bring our best minds and talent to solve this critical problem and ensure all students are successful in math, school, and life. This includes developing the most innovative learning technology using advanced data science in a way that inspires students and empowers teachers. If you want to help, come join us at DreamBox Learning.

We’re on a mission to radically transform the way the world learns. Today, our Intelligent Adaptive Learning platform – with its rigorous math curriculum and game-based environment – is helping 2 million kids and over 80,000 teachers improve math achievement and develop a love of math at the same time. And as a rapidly growing tech company, we are just getting started. We’re looking for talented product managers to drive our product innovation and accelerate our growth.
