What We’re Looking For:
The Curriculum Manager is responsible for leading a team of instructional designers, subject matter experts, technical writers, and DevOps engineers to refine and create new cybersecurity products.

The ideal candidate for this role has managed highly complex projects and flexibly-resourced teams and has the ability to adapt quickly to changing requirements. You are always driving for great quality, but you also know when to “go pencils down” and ship a product, working iteratively to continue to improve based on student and instructor feedback.

- You will recruit, hire, and lead a team of full-time and part-time instructional designers and technical subject matter experts (curriculum engineers), and DevOps engineers, working to establish, manage, and execute against agile delivery project plans.
- You will manage a team of subject matter experts to ensure that all curricular content is instructive, engaging, and teachable
- You will utilize data from learner analytics, internal and instructor feedback to make data-driven product improvement and roadmap decisions
- You will lead daily scrum to ensure the team is on track to complete work on time and plan ahead for dependencies, internal capabilities, or vulnerabilities that jeopardize quality releases.
- You will collaborate with cross-functional teams to identify, ideate, and develop solutions that improve the student and instructor experience.
Things That Should Be In Your Background:
- 3-5 years of project management experience, team leadership experience, and, ideally, experience creating technical curriculum for adult learners
- An expert working with technical learning content including, but not limited to:
- A self-starter who can quickly understand and develop processes and approaches.
- A leader motivated by helping others through mentorship, collaboration and support.
- A thinker with a strategic mindset that is capable of identifying problems and providing solutions, while also being able to flex to tremendous attention to detail.
- A project leader who can take ownership of a situation, bring order to chaos, deliver highly polished content deliverables consistently on time.
- A highly effective communicator with clear writing and solid presentation skills.
- A creative thinking, with an analytical mindset or experience in a development environment.
