About Andela:

Andela is a network of technology leaders dedicated to advancing human potential. We help companies build high-performing distributed engineering teams by investing in Africa’s most talented software developers. Based in NYC, SF, Lagos, Nairobi, Kigali, Cairo and Kampala, Andela is catalysing the growth of tech ecosystems across the African continent while solving the global technical talent shortage.

About the Team:

Andela’s Learning Technology team helps our engineers behave consistently and predictably across every aspect of an engagement. Learning Tech products combine ideas from behavioural, learning and management science to measure and improve engineer communication, velocity and work quality. While our name implies a focus on training, in reality training is just one tool we use. We also build systems that scaffold work in real time. Examples of products we’ve built:

  • A time management app which detects when a developer is blocked on a task and automatically opens communications with people who can help.
  • A system to measure organic practice of technical skills by parsing a developer’s git history.
  • A tool to generate targeted practice projects for granular skills, based on commits from the history of a live product.

About the Role:

As a Senior PM on Learning Technology you’ll own the full development of products which impact revenue by helping our engineers exceed their client’s expectations. To do this you’ll need to work with stakeholders from across the business:

  • Sales and Client Success Managers to understand the needs of our clients
  • Client Engineers to understand their behavioural blockers
  • Curriculum Developers and Trainers to coordinate execution of supplementary programs.
  • Learning Technology Engineers and Designers to rapidly iterate on products
  • Marketing managers to go-to-market both internally and externally

You’ll need to be deeply curious about both user research and business operations— looking for ways to leverage the needs and desires of our customers and engineers to create business value.

You’ll also be expected to act as a product management thought leader at Andela. You will mentor less experienced PMs across the company. You will be expected to think critically and constructively about existing PM practices and take action to improve them.

The ideal candidate has deep experience with:

  • Discovering new product opportunities within a fast growing company
  • Resolving the uncertainty associated with high level business objectives through experimentation and rapid iteration.
  • Working with cross functional teams that include more than just designers, engineers and PMs
  • Working with distributed teams
  • Agile software delivery

Benefits & Compensation

  • Full-time compensation
  • Full medical coverage
  • Breakfast, lunch and snacks provided daily
  • Beautiful working environment
  • Opportunity to work with the brightest minds on the planet
  • Oh, and a chance to change the world!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
