As Project Manager you will be responsible for monitoring and shepherding product delivery pipelines and enabling other development team members through production reports, block-breaking, and contractor coordination.

  • Serving as the point person in day-to-day operations for your team
  • Proactively identifying blocking problems in a pipeline and collaborating to develop a tailored solution
  • Attending regularly-held remote meetings using a camera and microphone, including daily huddles and weekly, monthly, and quarterly planning sessions
  • Coordinating with other Project Managers and management on resource allocation to enable your project’s completion and delivery, including contractor usage and management
  • Administering the development team's productivity software, including setting dependencies and labels, organizing workflow boards, and producing reports
  • Completing any task that will enable the product development team to deliver a quality product increment on-time and on-budget.

About Us

Nearly 90% of low-income students graduate high school without a college-ready ACT or SAT score. MasteryPrep’s mission is to level the playing field in education by offering the most effective test preparation available – made accessible to all students.

Through more than 10 successful years of partnering with school districts and institutions on college readiness services and resources, MasteryPrep has surpassed one million students served since the company’s founding in 2012.

MasteryPrep increased its student outreach by 70 percent in 2021 and is ranked among the Inc. 5000 “Fastest Growing Companies,” featured by “Entrepreneur 360,” and selected among the “Growth Leaders” by Louisiana Economic Development.

When we ask our employees what they love most about working for MasteryPrep, it comes down to the mission, the people, and the challenge.

  1. The mission: Ever had a day when you just don’t feel like getting out of bed and working? We don’t. We have a strong mission that truly changes lives and it motivates us each day to get up, get together, get better and get things done.
  2. The people: MasteryPrep is as diverse as the student population we serve and we value our employees as people, not just the position they fill. We have bicyclists, book nerds, musicians, basketball players, video gamers, and one person who has an insanely green thumb. No really. She can grow anything!
  3. The challenge: We believe that with everything we do, we should make it awesome. We don’t believe in “average,” “run-of-the-mill,” or “ordinary.” And “good enough” isn’t in our vocabulary. We’re growing tremendously and won’t stop until every student has access to a better future. Bring your experience, skills and creativity here – and you’ll find MasteryPrep is a place to contribute and feel valued.
