Job description

Posted on: 
May 17, 2024

Passionate about education and having a real impact as a PM? Ready to roll up your sleeves and work with the Co-Founders and Founding Team to grow a high-potential, early stage startup? 

EarlyDay is a fast-growing, well-funded startup building the first and only vertical talent marketplace for the early childhood education industry. In just one year of operations we have become the go-to marketplace for preschool hiring in New York, Texas, and Illinois, but we’ve only scratched the surface and we’re still a small team where you can have outsized impact. We recently raised an oversubscribed Seed round from top investors and couldn’t be more excited to grow.

At EarlyDay, we are committed to building up the early childhood education industry. We are a dynamic and passionate remote/distributed team of start-up junkies, former teachers, moms, and dog dads. The Founding Team has scaled and exited another two-sided marketplace together before leveraging that experience to make EarlyDay a success.

What We Offer:

  • Competitive compensation package (salary + equity + benefits)
  • We believe in the power of offering our employees equity to be owners in EarlyDay
  • Benefits package includes fully covered health insurance
  • Unlimited PTO and public holidays
  • Paid parental leave
  • Fully-remote team; work from where you are most productive
  • Strong career growth opportunities; we see you as a long term hire that will continue to grow and advance in your career at EarlyDay
  • Experienced and supportive team; we want you to succeed just as much as we want EarlyDay to


This is an opportunity to be the first Product Manager at an early stage Seed-funded startup and be a crucial member of our Founding Team. As the first PM for our web-based product, you will work closely with the Founders to shape the future of our product.

Our platform makes it faster and easier for preschools and childcare centers to hire pre-screened, qualified educators. As the founding PM for our web-based product, you will take ownership of our school- and teacher-facing two-sided marketplace.

We’re looking for an experienced PM who is passionate about building products that users can’t live without. You will join a small but tight-knit and fast-paced team to design, build, and roll-out products that are impactful for our schools and teachers. You’ll also lay the groundwork for implementing processes and strategies that set up our product org for growth.

Sound fun? Apply below.

What You’ll Do:

  • Work closely with our Founders to define overall direction of our product and build consensus on priorities leading to product execution
  • Own product vision, strategy, and roadmap; prioritize feature development according to customer needs and business goals
  • Translate product strategy into detailed requirements and prototypes
  • Define, track, and rigorously analyze metrics that inform the success of products
  • Establish and manage our product development process, collaborating with product, design, engineering, marketing, and sales teams along the way
  • Establish our processes for product roadmapping, OKRs, and goal-setting
  • Identify market opportunities to expand value to existing customers and launch new product lines
  • Grow the product org at our company, with opportunities in the future to mentor/manage junior product managers

  • Motivation to join an early stage startup and be part of a tight-knit, high-performing team
  • Curious nature, low-ego personality, and “no job is too small” attitude
  • Nice to have: passion for education and especially early childhood education!
