GitHub Education launched in 2012 with the mission of helping the next generation of developers make their best work. 7 years later, the program has grown to meet the needs of university students, bootcamp learners and teachers at all levels.
Now we seek a key role on the team to build bridges between GitHub Education and the rest of the technical ecosystem--a Program Manager to craft successful engagements with technology partners for the Student Developer Pack and GitHub Classroom.
The GitHub Student Developer Pack is a bundle of the best developer tools, free for students. Premium companies like Stripe, AWS Education, Heroku and Digital Ocean partner with GitHub Education in order to help students learn real-world workflows. Since 2014, the Pack has served 1.5 million students, with a goal of serving millions more.
GitHub Classroom helps teachers implement real-world workflows in their courses. Over 20,000 teachers have used Classroom to manage 250,000 unique assignments, distribute starter code, and monitor student progress. Classroom is an open source project with an active community of contributors.
As the Developer Program Manager for Education Ecosystem, you will work with partners throughout the lifecycle: engagement, contract terms, launch, and if need be, sunset.
This role is vital to helping the next generation of developers succeed, and will report to the Director of GitHub Education.
GitHub is the developer company. Over 36 million people use GitHub to build amazing things together across 100 million repositories. We make it easier for developers to be developers: to work together, to solve challenging problems, to create the world’s most important technologies. We foster a collaborative community that can come together—as individuals and in teams—to create the future of software and make a difference in the world.
At GitHub, we constantly strive to create an environment that allows our employees (Hubbers) to do the best work of their lives. We've designed one of the coolest workspaces in San Francisco (HQ), where over half of our Hubbers work, snack, and create daily. The other half of our Hubbers work remotely in 18 countries across the globe. Here is a complete list of where we can hire!
We are also committed to keeping Hubbers healthy, motivated, focused and creative. We've designed our top-notch benefits program with these goals in mind. In a nutshell, we've built a place where we truly love working, we think you will too.
