Quizlet’s marketing team is tasked with introducing Quizlet to the next 50 million learners (and beyond!). We work closely with product, user operations, business development and other teams to ensure that everyone who should be using Quizlet has heard about it. Our product marketing team's charter is to know our customers and understand what they want, bring those insights into the product development process, and then use those same insights to deliver compelling go-to-market and launch activities. 

About the role:

As a senior product marketing manager on at Quizlet, you’ll be responsible for bringing Quizlet product's to market end-to-end, from crafting user insights to perfecting positioning to developing launch plans and then seeing them through.

On a daily basis, you’ll partner with product management, product analytics and other marketers to help inform product roadmap decisions and strategy.
