First, let me tell you who we are -
AlephBeta.org is a growing non-profit media company producing high quality animated Bible videos. Many people believe that the Bible is meant to be read as a guidebook, but we don’t always know exactly how. No one reads Bible like it’s a self-help manual, right? Aleph Beta’s mission is to read the text closely, ask the tough questions and to discover, in surprising ways, how the Bible isn’t just a rulebook, but a guidebook - one that has profound wisdom that is relevant and meaningful in our everyday lives.
Aleph Beta is unique in that it is technically a non-profit, but we are run as a startup. Instead of focusing on a few key donors, we crowdfund by selling subscriptions - sort of like a Netflix for Bible. Working at Aleph Beta allows you to focus on growth in what is essentially a SaaS business, and feel good about what you do for a living.
Now, let me tell you about the opportunity -
We started in 2012 and today we have over 9,000 paying subscribers with ARR of over $1.5m with a churn of under 4%. Our growth started strong and the last 3 years has been in the 15-20% range. We want to grow faster. And our plan to do that involves a new mobile product offering that would be a mix of headspace, youversion bible app, and pray.com and we need someone to lead product. Is that you?
We could write a bunch of bullet points that tell you what we think we want. But we would prefer for you to be the type of person that take a look at what we have done so far and would be enthusiastic about the opportunity with some achievements in your career that showcases that you could deliver.
We have all the raw materials in a tech team, a media team, a brilliant scholar, and support. We know how to do remote. We know how to do video. We have lots of inspirational ideas. We are looking for a product manager that can organize, lead, deliver and iterate while keeping an eye on the growth goal.
If that's you, send me an email with what you've done, why you are enthusiastic about this role, and in your experience how long you would expect an initial product launch would take.
