Role Description

Strive was an ed-tech startup building a platform for management training and leadership development. Strive's approach is like Noom or Omada Health for learning, combining coaching, community, accountability and analytics to drive behavior change at scale. The approach worked – 90% of participants and 100% of buyers say they would be disappointed if they could no longer use Strive, the average participant improves 10% on key leadership skills and completion rates are ~3x industry standards.

Strive was acquired by FranklinCovey in April 2021 with the goal of using Strive's learning platform to power the learning experience for FranklinCovey's thousands of customers and millions of learners.

You will work with our product team to build a learning platform on a modern tech stack, scaling usage 10-1000x in the next year.

Company Culture

  1. Slope Over Intercept – Strivers aspire to become the best version of themselves, continuously improving personally and professionally. We approach work with a growth mindset, focused on how we can get better every day, searching for both small improvements and broad breakthroughs. We neither fear new challenges nor worry if we're not experts on day one. We aim to learn quickly, viewing failures as lessons learned and insights earned, not mistakes made.
  2. Balance Clear Standards and Compassion – When we work together, we set clear standards for ourselves and others to minimize miscommunication and unproductive storytelling. We're compassionate with ourselves and each other if and when we don't hit all of our plans, deadlines or goals. We give one another permission to be human, recognizing no one is perfect, supporting the person first and worker second.
  3. Think like a Scientist, Act like an Engineer, Document like a Historian – Like a scientist, we plan with intention and from first principles, focusing on the context, problem and hypothesis. Like an engineer, we act pragmatically, building just enough to achieve our goal or validate our hypothesis. Like a (great) historian, we document our ideas and plans, sharing them proactively and transparently in a manner that's clear for our current and future audience.
