Educate!, a fast-growing and award-winning social enterprise, is looking for a Product Strategist to lead development of an innovative new product for out-of-school youth. We’re looking for someone open-minded, driven, and passionate about impact, who has been part of building a product that achieved product-market fit and understands lean start-up approaches.
In our first ten years, Educate! became the biggest youth skills provider in East Africa by scaling our proven in-school model to impact hundreds of thousands of youth in Uganda and Rwanda. In 2021, our top priority across the organization is testing and developing a bootcamp model for out-of-school youth, beginning in Uganda. We already have evidence that this type of model can lead to better life outcomes for youth and are looking for the right person to lead development of a model that can ultimately be scaled to reach hundreds of thousands of out-of-school youth across multiple countries, providing an alternative to secondary school for a huge and underserved segment of African youth.
The Product Strategist for out-of-school youth will also join a dynamic leadership team committed to organizational and professional growth.
Dynamic experience highly preferred, with demonstrated ability to operate well in complex and fast-changing environments
The ideal candidate has worked in a very early-stage startup that was trying to achieve product-market fit
Familiarity with the lean startup approach is strongly preferred
