A Y Combinator/Imagine K12 company, ClassDojo’s long-term goal is to give every child on Earth an education they love. The ClassDojo app is the #1 communication app for micro-communities of K-8 teachers, children and families globally; they use it to stay connected, sharing what’s happening through the school day through photos, videos, messages, and activities. The company is now helping kids get learning experiences they love, beyond school. Today, ClassDojo is used by 95% of pre K-8 schools in the US, as well as in a further 180 countries.
This role is a critical hire. You’ll be the first product marketing manager on the team and will play a huge role in defining the function and driving tons of impact. You’ll be responsible for figuring out how to best market our new and existing products so that we can grow ClassDojo to our next major milestone: reach 100 million+ active families and tens of millions in revenue while deepening our brand love.
What you’ll do:
As our senior product marketer lead, you’ll help us grow ClassDojo to be the world’s most widely-used pre-K-8 product and the world’s most-loved consumer education brand for kids by building a deep understanding of our market, creating our positioning, and bringing that to life through excellent storytelling and marketing skills. You’ll also have a lot of influence to work with our product teams to shape the future of education.
You’ll work with a team of product managers, data scientists, growth marketers, and other cross-functional partners to hit our 10x user and revenue growth goals.
If you’re an experienced product marketer and excited to roll up your sleeves to help us achieve our aggressive goals, we’d like to hear from you.
What you’ll bring:
ClassDojo’s mission is to bring communities together and help them create an education experience their children love. Founded in 2011 (ImagineK12 / Y Combinator) and based in San Francisco, California, ClassDojo started as a communication app: a simple way for teachers, families, and children to share the magic of the school day through photos, videos, and messages. It creates a close-knit classroom community and exciting, inspiring, and creative classrooms and homes for kids. We’re one of the fastest-growing education companies of all time, used and loved by tens of millions of teachers, families, and children in 90% of K-8 schools in the US and 180 other countries.
