What’s the challenge?
Tassomai’s vision of being an indispensable education tool for everyone is an ambitious one. As a Product Manager, your responsibility is understanding who everyone is, and what indispensable means to them.
As an early product management hire you’ll be instrumental in the entire product development process. You’ll work closely with the leadership team to shape and communicate the vision for the company and its products.
You’ll start off working on our mature core product, which has almost 80000 daily active users, but if you have the appetite you’ll also be able to work on developing new products as we expand our portfolio. We’re planning to undergo a period of intensive growth and new product development; this is a great opportunity to really make your mark in an exciting, young company with a strong social mission.
