Full time Advertising and Public Relations Management Marketing

Job Description


Magoosh is seeking a Product Manager to identify and validate new courses and bring them to market. We currently have courses for many standardized tests including the GRE, SAT, ACT, MCAT, and more. We’d like to expand our offerings to many other courses, including those outside of traditional test prep, ranging from Writing to Data Science. This is a highly cross-functional role, so we’re looking for someone with excellent communication (verbal and written). We’re really excited about the possibilities and believe these new courses can generate over $1M in incremental annual revenue within a few years.

You’ll work closely with the CEO and the Head of Product to identify the strategy for testing these products. You’ll also work closely with our Content and Marketing teams to build the courses and share them with the world.

This position is a full time, in-office position based in the Magoosh office in Berkeley, CA with an annual salary of $144,000- $162,000 depending on experience. You must be authorized to work in the US.


In this position, you will…

  • Identify which courses we should test, conducting market research on trends, size, willingness to pay, competitive landscape and more
  • For each course, determine which assumptions (e.g., awareness, conversion, product quality) are most critical to validate early, and validate those assumptions as quickly as possible
  • Work with our Content team to build out course material and learn about our course creation process, jumping in as needed
  • Work with our Marketing team to build out content marketing and lead gen materials and learn about our marketing strategies (e.g. SEO, video, etc.),  jumping in as needed
  • Assess whether we should accelerate growth of new courses through acquisitions



$144,000 - $162,000 depending on experience
