This is an expression of interest, rather than a role we've formally opened. We will assess applications on a rolling basis, using the process described here. Because we aren't actively focused on hiring for this role, we will tend to have a higher bar for inviting you to the next stage of the process.
Nonetheless, we want to make the first step easy, and we recommend that you apply even if you aren't sure you're a good fit.
We are looking for a product manager to lead the development of the EA Forum.
The EA Forum currently gets over one million pageviews per year and is frequented by many of the most prominent figures in the EA movement. But there is a lot more we can do to make the Forum more impactful, particularly with regards to getting engagement from those newer to EA.
As an example of the kind of project you would lead, here is a mockup of a possible site redesign. Many of our users are sent links to random articles from e.g. their group organizer, and then they bounce after reading the article. This redesign is attempting to lower the bounce rate by more prominently highlighting related articles, calls to action like job ads, etc.
Note: we are placing this expression of interest to source product management candidates for future projects. The project mentioned in this “vision” section is the most likely project you would work on, but there may be others.
As this is an Expression of Interest, we are less confident than usual about what your precise responsibilities would be, but expect them to include:
Talking to people in our target audience to understand what they’re looking for when they visit the site, and how we can better serve them.
Rapidly building and testing prototypes.
Defining and tracking metrics to understand and improve our progress.
Developing drip campaigns or other tools to convert initial interest into sustained engagement.
Working with engineers, designers, and content creators to create a compelling user experience.
We need someone who has (or can quickly develop) the following skills:
In-depth knowledge of effective altruism
Solid prototyping skills (such that you can translate user interviews and data into product ideas, and find cheap ways to test those ideas with users)
Basic design skills (such that you can create decent website/email prototypes, even if we use another person for the final design)
Legible success in the following domains would also be useful (but isn’t required):
Communicating serious ideas, ideally related to effective altruism (e.g. published articles or videos, or custom content for a local EA group)
Growth or content marketing
Design (you can create professional-standard, pixel-perfect final designs)
Data analytics (e.g. basic SQL)
We think that people with a variety of backgrounds could be a good fit for the role, including group organizers, journalists, digital marketers, developers, etc.
