Entry Level Content/Program Manager

We are also currently accepting applications for a marketing outreach specialist position.

SR Education Group produces high-quality websites related to higher education. Our products leverage user-generated content and important quality and affordability metrics to help prospective students find the college or university best suited to their needs.

We are looking for a self-motivated employee who can drive results in a complex, multi-site publishing environment. If you are someone who thrives off of the energy and enthusiasm of a fast-paced collaborative team, we want to hear from you.

At SR Education Group, content managers collaborate with strategists, designers, copywriters, and developers to create and manage high-quality site content. A program manager must understand and advocate for the user's best interests, balance constraints, implement creative solutions, identify inefficiencies, and recommend enhancements and course corrections as a project evolves.

As part of a small company, you'll be given a wide array of responsibilities throughout the product lifecycle. We value hard work and critical-thinking abilities almost as much as our wine and cheese parties and fully-stocked kitchen. As part of our small but collaborative product team, you'll make impactful decisions seen by thousands of users each day. This company is great for individuals who have or who are seeking product management experience, but also want exposure to all aspects of an online business.
