Product Manager at Educative
Educative provides online training courses for developers to learn new technologies. Our platform includes pre-configured interactive environments. This allows learners to practice their new skills right away with no additional setup on their machines. The courses weave in quizzes and coding challenges to enhance learning, and the test code can even be deployed so the learner can see what he/she has built. This is a far cry from the all too common one-size-fits-all video monologues.
We are hiring our first Product Manager who will help us take the product from 400K+ developers to millions of developers. In addition, you’ll help us increase our enterprise customer base from 10+ companies to hundreds of companies.
