About the Role

As the Product Manager of our curriculum expansion and support team you will drive innovation and set product direction for DataCamp's curriculum growth from a technical perspective. Some of the question you will need to tackle every day:

  • How do we support new technologies (scala, java, …) and new topics (deep learning, AI,...) in our learning environment.
  • How can we create interactive and engaging learning experiences for topics such as statistics, coding, etc.
  • How do we improve our interactive feedback messaging system in a scalable way.
  • How do we make author friendly ways with writing content in new technologies.
  • What does the student data tell us on learner happiness related to interactive feedback.

You will form a dedicated product team with partners in engineering. We believe in a decentralized model with a high level of freedom and ownership at the lowest level. You will be responsible for setting and achieving your own outcomes and roadmap based on the company vision and quarterly goals.  

The ability to communicate effectively, online and offline, is essential in this role.
