Talis (a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAGE Publishing) is an edTech company focused on applying technology to make teaching and learning more connected in higher education. We help universities, libraries, faculty and students to connect to the digital resources they teach and learn, but more importantly to collaborate and engage with these resources.
We have an established and market-leading presence in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. We have well over 1.5million students and 100, 000 academics using our products every day. We have two products at different stages in the product lifecycle and are now focused on the growth of our more established product Talis Aspire, into large untapped markets and replicating our success of growth in our existing markets for our earlier stage product, Talis Elevate.
We are a fully distributed team of passionate people with a culture that is informal (no airs and graces here), we have a fairly flat structure and we value accountability, delivering impact, transparency, collaboration and solving meaningful problems and customers success.
You’ll be working in a friendly team that works closely and collaboratively, and supports each other in a psychologically safe environment. We have a shared commitment to our mission and goals, we like to deliver visible and measurable impact frequently, and to build and do the right things. We enable each other to continue learning, grow and to be always improving. We also like to get to know each other and have fun along the way.
What we are looking for:
We’re looking for a Senior product manager to drive our Talis Elevate product through an exciting growth phase. The way academics and students teach and learn with digital resources has been rapidly shifting, and this has further accelerated with the realisation that universities need to better support online delivery.
This is an opportunity to shape the future of a product at a really exciting stage of its lifecycle. You’ll be focused on outcomes around driving adoption at academic, student and institutional levels, helping customers demonstrate success through data and ensuring the product fits into the academic institutional ecosystem. You’ll also be solving scaling problems by building in the right enterprise-level capabilities as well as exploring new adoption models. Most importantly, you’ll be delivering real impact to the daily lives of students and faculty in how they teach, learn, engage and collaborate with digital resources.
You will report to the Head of Product and be embedded in the Talis Elevate product engineering team (engineering and UX).
You'll be responsible for:
