We believe that wherever learning flourishes so do people.

Overview

We seek a Product Manager to join a highly collaborative and fast-moving team dedicated to building the next generation of immersive digital learning and practice tools within higher education.

As a product manager, you are a bridge between the product development organization and customer-facing product stakeholder teams. This position is focused on building flexible and scalable capabilities that support many of the product applications in the Pearson portfolio.

This means a modular, flexible, and interoperable approach to development is required. Seamless integration with student workflows, whether integrating with an LMS or consumer software, will enhance the value of Pearson products.
