ELA Product Manager

About the role

inquirED was founded by teachers with the mission of bringing inquiry-based learning to every student. Inquiry Journeys, inquirED’s elementary social studies curriculum, is used in schools and districts in 30+ states to help students develop deep social studies content knowledge and build the skills essential for a thriving democracy. We’re now looking for an ELA Product Manager that can steer the development of an innovative literacy-focused curriculum across the product life cycle.

In this role, you’ll be at the intersection of multiple teams, triangulating market research and user experience with an in-depth understanding of inquirED’s pedagogical vision for this product. The ideal candidate will have a deep passion for product management as well as elementary literacy. You’ll have in-depth knowledge of the current literacy research base, existing literacy curricula in the market, and a practical understanding of what teachers need in the classroom. You’ll have the aptitude for building something that doesn’t exist, thrive in ambiguity, be able to communicate and grapple with multiple stakeholders, and be able to facilitate decision making when there often isn’t a clear ‘right’ answer.



  • Experience in product management, ideally specific to large-scale curriculum development projects
  • Understanding of inquiry-based curriculum design
  • Experience as an elementary literacy teacher or curriculum designer is strongly preferred
  • Experience managing the development of digital curricular products (like an app or curriculum platform) is strongly preferred
  • Strong managerial skills and ability to gather and utilize both quantitative and qualitative data and feedback to drive product iteration
  • Strong understanding of and proven success with rapid iterative design processes
  • Strong research and writing skills
  • Meticulous organizational ability in order to set priorities, organize workload, handle multiple responsibilities and meet ambitious deadlines
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, feedback-driven environment in circumstances involving ambiguity and nuance
  • A willingness to be scrappy, creative, and unconventional
  • A commitment to inquirED’s mission and model of inquiry
