Someone once said that Data is information and information is power – If you’re an innovative and motivated Product Manager, with a strong background in data system management, we would like you to come and help us achieve our vision.
Did you know?
Around 15-20% of the global population are neurodiverse, which takes many forms, including dyspraxia, dyslexia, autism and ADHD – individuals with such challenges require extra support. At Empowering Tech, we are passionate about literacy and promoting inclusivity in education and beyond. Combining decades of experience in e-commerce, technology, teaching and marketing, we’ve created an umbrella of passionate people who are dedicated to making a difference.
To be responsible for the management and development or our data system product. To improve the user experience, increase value for our customers and drive profitability.
The Data System is to be the centre piece of our product offering and knowledge gathering. The purpose of the product is to assist people with dyslexia and other learning challenges to access printed text (language acquisition), to learn and/or improve reading and literacy.
The right personality?
A project manager type of personality. A person with the power to gather knowledge and define a product and push that through development and deployment. It is a hybrid person with capabilities to talk business and user value with management as well as tech solution with development. The work is not mechanical and we-tell-you-what-to-do, we need a person who actually think on their own. But one without too big an ego. It’s about the team, the company and the mission.
Although fully remote, we will need you to come to the office 2 – 3 times per month in order to take part in development meetings and provide feedback to the wider team (all expenses will be covered).
If this sounds like you – come and join us and be a part of everyone’s future!
Here at Empowering Tech, we are about getting the right candidate for the right role. We recognise that as an organisation we are underrepresented in certain areas, so we welcome applications from candidates who have neurodiverse challenges, identify as LGBT or are from an Ethnic Minority background. If you need support to assist you to make an application or attend an interview, then please email our recruitment team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
