Sown To Grow (STG) is a K12 education technology platform that empowers schools to improve student social, emotional, and academic health through an easy and engaging reflection and feedback process. In a short weekly routine, students check-in emotionally and reflect on the strategies that are working best for them (or new ones to try). They start with a focus on emotional well-being, and expand to SEL competencies and academic goal-setting over time. Teachers, principals, and counselors access real-time reporting on students’ emotions and can proactively intervene to support student needs. The system also includes built-in SEL assessment, supporting SEL curriculum, and powerful artifacts of growth.

We are seeking a Product Management and Analytics Intern to join our team. An ideal candidate is someone who is excited about joining a fast-growing startup and is passionate about the idea of scaling impactful, evidence based education practices across the US and other global markets. This role is perfect for someone with analytics experience who is interested in transitioning into a product management career, or someone with some initial product experience who wants to transition into the education world. The initial expectation is that this role will be ~20 hrs/week - we are a fast growing organization and anticipate shaping this role into a full-time position in the future.

We are a nimble team that is inspired to make a difference in the world while building a successful business. Before starting STG, our founding team spent several years working in both the private sector and schools/districts. We care deeply about building a product that positively impacts student outcomes and supports teachers in their mission critical work. The majority of STG’s school and district partners serve predominantly low-income communities, where supporting the emotional well-being and strength of students is meaningful and impactful.

STG has received seed funding from highly selective, innovative funds including Imagine K12 (now Y Combinator Edtech), January Ventures, OneWorld Investments, the National Science Foundation, US Department of Education, NewSchools Venture Fund, Impact Assets, Digital Promise and others. The company currently serves schools in 40 states and has large-scale contracts with organizations such as Metro Nashville Public Schools (TN), Saint Louis Public Schools (MO), Oakland Unified School District (CA), KIPP (various regions), and more.

Responsibilities:

  • Blend usage data, customer discovery, stakeholder input, and the latest in learning science and pedagogy research to help develop the product strategy and roadmap for Sown To Grow’s comprehensive SEL product.

  • Partner with data science and machine learning team to develop and improve technology driven assisting functionality for educators.
  • Expected time commitment is ~20 hr/week with schedule flexibility

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 2+ years experience in analytics or product related role
  • Desire to work for an impact driven education organization
  • Experience with writing and maintaining SQL queries
  • A team player who is humble and curious, and is comfortable interacting with and learning from people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences
  • Strong communication skills in formal and informal settings across multiple modalities (written, oral, slides, etc). This includes being a strong active listener and being able to describe quantitative outcomes in layperson’s terms.
  • Ability to adjust quickly to changing priorities and conditions
  • Proficiency with Google Workplace tools
  • Bay Area preferred, potential for remote for the right candidate

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with K-12 education technology (classroom / school experience is even better!)
  • A clear understanding of social-emotional learning in schools
  • Familiarity with UX and Design Principles
  • Experience working with software engineers and data scientists
