ASSISTments' Fresh New Look is here!

White X

Product Manager

ASSISTments is a best-in-class tool that enables teachers to deliver formative online math assignments, both remote and in class, and use powerful data and reporting to help focus support for struggling students. Alongside ASSISTments, the E-TRIALS project focuses on understanding and delivering efficacy based student outcomes. One important part of E-TRIALS is our new E-TRIALS application that will be used by researchers to increase the efficiency of running randomized controlled studies using ASSISTments. The E-TRIALS app is a first-of-its-kind tool that enables researchers to learn what works in online learning contexts at scale.


We are looking for a Product Manager to serve at a critical nexus among a storied team of engineers, researchers, and designers, all working together to bring the E-TRIALS app to life in a way that will inform ASSISTments as a learning tool. This is an excellent opportunity for an early career PM to make a significant impact on an industry-changing product.
