Why is this role awesome?
This is a product I use, backed by a16z and First Round and with founders with strong track records. You report directly to the CEO; opportunities like this are rare and hard to get!

Who We Are:

Maven is building the university of the future - one that opens access to instructors and students across the world. We are building toward that vision today by creating a platform that enables the best instructors to launch their own cohort-based courses - the most engaging and interactive student learning experiences.

Our small team has built and run world-class educational experiences at Udemy, AltMBA, Minerva, Google, General Assembly, Socratic, and Shopify. We're backed by incredible investors including Andreessen Horowitz, First Round Capital, Naval Ravikant, and Arlan Hamilton. We've launched sold-out courses for incredible instructors like Li Jin, Anthony Pompliano, Lenny Rachitsky, Sahil Lavingia, and more. In <6 months we did over $1.5M in course sales on the platform and over 20 instructors made at least $10K. There is proof there’s a big market here, but it is still early enough that everyone who joins can make an impact.

We're looking for entrepreneurial, strategic doers who are passionate about shaping the future of education. Join us.

The Role:

You Will:

Run product at Maven. Your job is to envision and execute upon a product offering that is the best-in-class course platform on the Internet. You practice selective perfectionism: you understand how to hold our product to a high standard while simultaneously building quickly where necessary. User research and data-driven insights are natural to you, but you do not rely upon the user or data to tell you the full story. Instead, you determine what a user’s goals are and invent creative solutions towards that goal that they never even thought of. You can manage designers, lead engineers and help recruit an outstanding team.

The main benefit of this opportunity is that the existing team is extremely strong and well-versed in areas that will enable your success. Our engineering team is seasoned and has been able to attract a large stable of talent. You’ll also work hand-in-hand with our business stakeholders who have a deep insight into our instructors.

You’ll report to the CEO / Co-Founder Gagan Biyani and be on the leadership team. You will be measured on how delightful the product is to instructors and whether instructors choose to use Maven over building a CBC on their own or on another platform.

You Have: 

  • A knack for knowing what customers want even if they don’t know it themselves
  • Ability to work with a large engineering team and help them build amazing products through instituting strong operational systems, creating alignment and clear communication
  • Ability to create and execute on a long-term product vision that sets the industry standard for product in its category
  • A deep interest in the cutting edge product innovations of our time
  • Ability to attract and manage a talented team
