Product Manager – Institutions Team
Location: London head office or remote (Preferably UK timezone or East Coast, US)
Experience: 2-5 years as product manager
BibliU is a digital learning platform that is changing the future of the multi-billion-dollar textbook industry. Our mission is to shake up higher education and make reading materials more accessible and learning more effective. We do this by making textbooks and monographs more affordable for students, so that in most cases, they are included in tuition costs. We have incorporated accessibility features to accommodate multiple learning styles and the different needs and preferences of each student.
BibliU has grown rapidly, and during this time we have created Europe’s largest digital education content programme, in partnership with Coventry University. Upon entering the US market, we have secured the largest digital textbook programmes in the US with Phoenix and Grand Canyon Universities.
We are working with over 60% of universities in the United Kingdom, and are steadily growing in the US . We have recently raised $10 million in a Series A investment round (you can read more about this on Sky News and EdSurge) and have ambitious plans for continued growth and expansion.
Our team of 45, of which half the senior management team are women, are currently seeking a Product Manager for our Institutions product team to work within a global, cross-functional, product-driven company.
Institutions Product Team at BibliU

You’ll grow the value our product delivers to customers by:
Developing a deep understanding of our market and of how our institutional customers operate within it
Taking problems our different institutional customers face and validating your hypotheses with them
Coordinating across complex inter-departmental dependencies to go from idea to successful implementation
Collaborating with teams across BibliU to align plans, unblock development, and deliver meaningful outcomes on time
Verifying features meet the specs required and QAing them to minimise the risk of getting bugs into production
Tracking and monitoring your features’ performance and functionality after launch to iterate and improve on them.
Helping development teams iterate on and improve their processes to optimise how they operate as a team
Ensuring bug reports get handled by your team in a timely manner
Our benefits are all aimed at supporting a healthy work-life balance and cultivating a company culture where you can bring your whole, human self to work.
