inquirED was founded by teachers with the mission of bringing inquiry-based learning to every student. Inquiry Journeys, inquirED’s elementary social studies curriculum, is used in schools and districts in 30+ states to help students develop deep social studies content knowledge and build the skills essential for a thriving democracy. We’re now looking for an ELA Product Manager that can steer the development of an innovative literacy-focused curriculum across the product life cycle.

In this role, you’ll be at the intersection of multiple teams, triangulating market research and user experience with an in-depth understanding of inquirED’s pedagogical vision for this product. The ideal candidate will have a deep passion for product management as well as elementary literacy. You’ll have in-depth knowledge of the current literacy research base, existing literacy curricula in the market, and a practical understanding of what teachers need in the classroom. You’ll have the aptitude for building something that doesn’t exist, thrive in ambiguity, be able to communicate and grapple with multiple stakeholders, and be able to facilitate decision making when there often isn’t a clear ‘right’ answer.
