GreatSchools is the leading national nonprofit empowering parents to unlock educational opportunities for their children and support stronger schools in their community. We aim to make school quality information relevant and actionable to support equity for underserved communities who have faced systemic racism and unjust barriers to access a quality education for their children. We are the only national organization that collects education data from all 51 state departments of education and the federal government and then provides analysis, insights and school quality ratings to parents, communities, advocacy organizations, researchers, policymakers and others. GreatSchools.org reaches 45 million users per year, 40% of whom are from low-income households. We also work to uncover bright spots in American education and catalyze discussions about equity. We have worked for two decades to develop parent support resources, including articles, videos, podcasts, parent tips, and learning materials parents can use at home to strengthen the home-school connection and keep their child learning and on track.
We are looking for a dynamic Vice President of Product to join our mission-driven team. As the VP of Product, you will lead our organization’s product and design strategy to evolve our offering to best support our users and social impact goals in a dynamic K-12 education landscape. This role is highly cross-functional and requires strong interpersonal skills.
The VP of Product reports to the CEO. This is a full time, exempt position located in our Oakland, CA office, but remote work within the US is ok, with the ability to travel to Oakland periodically, once it’s safe to do so.
We are an equal opportunity employer and encourage diversity in our workplace — education is a universal concern and we need people from all backgrounds to help parents navigate their options and make informed decisions for their children’s education.
Remote within the US, or Oakland, CA
When deemed safe by health guidelines, occasional travel to partner institutions, convenings and meetings across the country, and/or to our headquarters in Oakland, CA may be necessary.
