Project Manager Development

Job description

At LessonUp, our main driver to start the day is our mission. We want to make smiles appear on the faces of over 1 million teachers in the world. Our platform will make this happen by being an easy to go to place to make interactive, present-day classes to share with the kids. Together, the teachers and the LessonUp team have already made thousands of classes, video’s, images and assignments to work with. In class, or remote! An easy and fun way to teach - just like it should be.


The amount of users is growing - we’ve reached 150k users some time ago - and we always want to make the platform better and more scalable. Our tech team grew from 3 to 10 developers in just one year, and you will be the one to coach and lead them when it comes to working together to continuously optimise the product and the organisational agility.

To help them achieve this, you will guide them on the best/most efficient use of efficiency practices in and out of their sprints. You will facilitate all scrum ceremonies, facilitate discussions, play a big role in decision making and help them with conflict resolutions. You will work closely together with our Product Owner when it comes to the grooming and maintenance of the product backlog. You are the person that will remove impediments from the sprint and assist with improving internal communication and transparency.
