Job Description

ClassDojo’s mission is to give every child on Earth an education they love.

We started by building a network that connects teachers, children, and families. ClassDojo’s flagship app is the #1 communication app connecting K-8 teachers, children, and families, globally. They use it to share what’s happening throughout the day through photos, videos, messages, and activities. It is actively used at an unprecedented scale: in over 95% of US schools, reaching ~51 million children in ~180 countries, all built by a team of 65 people [1]). We are now beginning to use this network to give kids the best learning experiences in the world, far beyond those a standard school can provide.

We hire for talent density. Our team comprises the most talented, entrepreneurial, and innovative teammates from around the world, with deep backgrounds in education and large scale consumer internet, including Instagram, Netflix, Dropbox, Uber, Y Combinator, and more. We’re building a company where the most talented people want to work. We believe you’ll do the best work of your life here—and you’ll pioneer the future of education, too.

You’ll be joining a seasoned team of product marketers 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 to teachers 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.

As our senior product marketing lead for teachers, 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 engaging go-to-market campaigns that drive impact. 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.
