  • Product Manager: University of Chicago

    Salary

    TBD

    Position: Product Manager
    Reports to: Director of the Tools of Thought Initiative
    Preferred Start Date: ASAP

    Who We Are
    Working hard is no longer the pathway to economic opportunity and upward mobility that it
    once was. We believe that is because the nature of jobs has changed. For most of the 20th
    century, the key to the middle class was a strong back; today it is a flexible mind. Jobs have
    shifted from the physical to the social and mental. Businesses increasingly can’t find workers
    with the “soft” skills needed to thrive in these jobs. These challenges will only get worse over
    time as the economy changes: three quarters of jobs are already in the service sector – where
    these skills are crucial – and that sector is still growing. AI is set to eliminate the routine, non-social parts of jobs, leaving only the parts that require soft skills.

    Our goal with the Tools of Thought Initiative is to develop a new training program for the
    workforce that combines what the very best behavioral science research tells us about which
    soft skills matter most with our field experiences about how to design engaging, culturally
    competent programs that work in the real world. In doing so, we aim to fundamentally change
    the productivity and well-being of millions of workers.

    The Role
    The Product Manager will play a key role in the operational delivery of the Tools of Thought
    Initiative, including building and maintaining relationships with development and testing
    partners, producing plans for the development of early product prototypes and testing of those
    prototypes, and developing and using systems to ensure the project stays on track.

    This is a unique opportunity to combine the culture and pace of a startup with the rigor of a
    research environment. Like any good startup, fundamentally we want to produce a product
    that works and scales. Unlike most startups, we rely on foundational research to inform our
    product development and our goal is positive social impact. This role will involve continuous
    learning and adaptability to the changing needs of the initiative.

    This person will report to the Director of the Tools of Thought Initiative and have primary
    responsibility for the product management of the Initiative. The above is intended to describe
    the general content of and requirements for the performance of this job. It is not to be
    construed as an exhaustive statement of duties, responsibilities, or requirements.

    Duties and Responsibilities
    ● Works with the Director of the Initiative to manage product design and development,

    ● Assists with the design and implementation of the strategy to achieve the objectives of
    the Initiative, including the staff and operations plan, design and execution of research
    activities, and communications plan.
    ● Assists with administrative functions which may include planning and scheduling,
    program evaluation, policy implementation, personnel administration, budget,
    marketing, fundraising and proposal development.
    ● Assists with developments of publication of internal- and external-facing documents and
    program descriptions.
    ● Performs other related work as needed.

    Education
    Bachelor’s degree in economics, business, public policy, or a closely related field required.

    Experience
    Some relevant work and/or research experience required; experienced gained in school counts
    towards requirement.

    In addition, though none of the following are required for the position, candidates are
    encouraged to highlight experience in the following areas:
    ● Experience managing a project or small team to complete a task or plan to a deadline
    ● Experience working on large projects with multiple stakeholders
    ● Experience working on field experiments

    Competencies
    ● Strong operational and project management skills with exceptional attention to detail
    required.
    ● Entrepreneurial spirit with demonstrated ability to work effectively and collaboratively
    with multiple constituencies in a sometimes ambiguous and fast-paced environment
    preferred; ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment required.
    ● Outstanding interpersonal skills and ability to maintain positive relationships with
    various stakeholders required.
    ● Strong time management skills with a proven ability to multitask and to prioritize
    activities to successfully complete projects on tight deadlines with little supervision
    required.
    ● Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to present data in a
    simple and straightforward way for non-technical audiences required.
    ● Demonstrated ability to exercise sound judgment required.
    ● Knowledge and understanding of behavioral science or psychology literature preferred.
    ● Ability to work discreetly with sensitive and confidential data preferred.
    ● Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint skills preferred.

    To Apply
    We seek a diverse pool of applicants who wish to join an academic community that places the
    highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages a diversity of perspectives, experiences,
    groups of individuals, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement,

    Headquartered in Hong Kong, Earthcare Foundation has been funding environmental projects since 2003.  Currently, we are working closely with NGOs in SE Asia to help millions of farmers to adopt climate smart farming and waste management practices that reduce super climate pollutants while also improving their health and livelihoods. To ensure that our evidence-based approach is grounded in sound climate, agricultural and behavioural sciences, we have our own in-house regenerative farming expert and collaborate with a leading behavioural scientist consultancy from the UK.

    To help us develop more climate-focused projects and attract other co-funders and NGOs to join our cause, we are looking to develop in-house behavioural science capacities.

    Your key responsibilities

    • Work closely with the ECF project team and local partners on the application of behavioural science to turn sound climate solutions into viable behaviourally informed opportunities that appeal to our target beneficiaries. You will be involved in every aspect of project implementation from strategy formulation, programme design, training and promotional material development, design of motivational systems for local teams and communities, to policy lobbying with local and national authorities.
    • Work in tandem with the Management team to
