Product Manager

We are looking for a product manager to join our team.

Rustici Software makes eLearning standards based software. Our software is responsible for launching and tracking standards based online learning for millions of learners. You would join a team that guides the evolution of learning technology software products used worldwide. We are a remote/in-office hybrid company located in Franklin, TN. While we strongly prefer local candidates for this role, we are open to qualified remote candidates residing in the United States.

Our ideal candidate has:

  • Strong communication skills, with both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • One or more years in a product management role, or similar experience.
  • Some experience in a technical role. If you once considered becoming a software developer and changed your mind, this might be a great place for you.
  • Having experience in B2B, SaaS, or eLearning software is a plus. If you have UX design experience, that is also helpful.

What you’ll do

  • Understand the big picture: We have a portfolio of products that solve eLearning problems for hundreds of customers in dozens of industries. While you’ll have primary ownership of one product, you’ll need to stay up to speed on all of our current products, customers, use cases, and industry trends.
  • Identify opportunities: Every day, we hear from customers and potential customers about problems that they need to solve. Taking that direct feedback, along with notes from our sales, account management, and support teams, and ideas from our developers, and identifying opportunities to further our strategic goals, provide additional value to our customers, and increase revenue is at the core of the product manager’s role.
  • Build consensus: We have no shortage of work that we could take on. You’ll need to make the case for work you believe we should do, and against work you believe is less urgent. That means discussing the opportunities that you’ve identified with our other teams, articulating the value that solving them would bring to our customers, and listening to what they have to say. Be persuasive, but keep an open mind. Product managers don’t tell people what work to do; they help them find the right work.
  • Collaborate with everyone: Work with development teams to create features that solve the right problems for the right users. Meet with technical and business leads to develop product roadmaps. Coordinate with the marketing, sales, support, and account management teams about upcoming releases. Provide your colleagues with the information about our products that they need in order to do their most important work.
  • Be a part of the culture: When you aren’t helping define the future of our products, there is plenty of opportunity to play and socialize with coworkers. On any given day you will find a group of people playing some kind of game, whether they are in the office or remote. If games aren’t your thing, then don’t fret. You will still find interesting conversations to be had such as; debating the sandwichness of a meal or the price of a fully articulated giraffe skeleton.

About our work

Every day, millions of people around the world access valuable learning and training content powered by Rustici Software’s products. If you’ve ever taken an online course, there’s a good chance our software was running behind the scenes. We specialize in helping software vendors and organizations solve problems specific to implementing eLearning standards, such as SCORM, xAPI and cmi5. Since 2002, we’ve been sharing our expertise with our customers and the industry by providing resources for creating, delivering and distributing eLearning content. We are proud to be known as the “SCORM folks,” “eLearning nerds” and most recently, catapulting the learning industry into newer standards.

About the team

We currently have one product manager who is responsible for all of our products, and we are looking to expand on their success and grow a team. So we are really forming less of a team and more of a dynamic duo. You will have an opportunity to help shape our approach to product management while focusing primarily on a single product.
