Mobile Product Manager / Lead

| Greater NYC Area
At Skillshare, we’re building a global community of curious, lifelong learners. Our mobile team plays a key role in our ability to scale by building apps that allow anyone, anywhere to access our platform. Their work enables us to reach people around the world and make learning as easy as glancing at your phone. 
We’re excited to welcome a seasoned product leader who will spearhead our mobile efforts across iOS, Android, and TV. Working closely with engineering, design, product, content, marketing, and support teams, you’ll have the opportunity to shape the mobile user experience and build apps that allow for anyone, anywhere to have access to learning.
The mobile team is poised to grow significantly over the next year and you’ll help lead the charge. We’ll look to your expertise in building consumer-facing mobile products and your ability to work seamlessly with teams across the company, champion the user, and drive real impact as we scale. 

What you'll do:

  • Work closely with engineering, product, and design leaders to develop ongoing mobile strategy and roadmaps
  • Develop and execute strategy to launch tv apps (Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, etc.)
  • Work closely with web teams to unify the user experience and work towards feature parity between our web and mobile apps.
  • Monitor app reviews and work closely with support to triage issues
  • Write user stories, manage project execution, A/B test, wireframe, and define product roll-out strategies
  • Process, review and interpret large bodies of qualitative and quantitative data on customer usage patterns to uncover new product insights

Why we're excited about you:

  • 5+ years experience in mobile product management role – this is not your first rodeo
  • Deep knowledge of app design, mobile experience, and UI conventions across both iOS and Android (experience building TV apps a plus)
  • Technical enough to talk shop with and gain the respect of world-class engineers... and comfortable communicating with non-technical teams and leaders across the company
  • Passionate about building products for everyone, not just yourself
  • A creative problem solver, who is able to incorporate quant data, qualitative insights, and macro business trends to pivot and iterate on original ideas. 
  • Proven ability to lead teams and work cross-functionally with product, engineering, analytics and marketing in a highly collaborative environment.

Why you're excited about us:

  • Impact: Mobile is a major company priority and you’ll have the chance to lead the charge.
  • Growth: You’ll have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and take on more responsibility over time.
  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.

Skillshare is an online learning community whose mission is to connect curious, lifelong learners everywhere – and, in so doing, build a more creative, more generous, and more prosperous world. Today, our community has grown to millions of members who come to Skillshare to learn creative and entrepreneurial skills, network with peers, and even teach a class themselves.

An Insider's view of Skillshare

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We balance being both focused and flexible in our office. In this kind of fluid environment, we can seamlessly ease in and out of individual heads-down time to group sessions; from meditation to collaboration; from desk to the lounge. The vibe lends us the freedom to play to our strengths and value our differences in working styles.

Jenni

Senior Product Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration is frequent and organic at Skillshare; we foster a uniquely friendly atmosphere of openness and shared purpose. Through cross-team threads, project-based meetings, comments on RFC's, pull request reviews, Q&A sessions, and, of course, simple conversations, collaboration commonly happens across a table or across time zones.

Justin

Engineering Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Skillshare has supported my career growth and trajectory tremendously. I started here 3 years ago on the Community team, but after discovering a passion for coding, Skillshare provided me with a mentor and on the job time to learn. It's been two years since I switched careers, and I'm so grateful that I get to come in and keep learning every day.

Callan

Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a management team, we strongly believe in making ourselves accessible. This includes: 1:1s with direct reports, skip-level meetings, team-wide meetings, coffees with people across departments, and attending team events. More broadly, we apply the same foundational rule we all learned in kindergarten: treat people the way you want to be treated.

Sabrina

VP, Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We're in an exciting position - we have a product that we believe in and a community that believes in us. The question we face is: how can we build a platform which works for the Skillshare of today, but will scale to the needs of the Skillshare of the future? It’s not enough to keep up with growth; we must build for where our growth will take us.

Director of Engineering
