Job Description

The Assessment Principal Product Manager will help create the future of Turnitin’s assessments for the educators and students we serve globally. This is a high-profile role to take ownership and execute an essential element of Turnitin’s strategy. You’ll develop the roadmap to unify our existing essay, paper-to-digital, and online assessment solutions into a seamless user experience, all while leveraging Turnitin’s leadership in integrity and AI. 

Our products tend to begin and end with customers, so you’ll be interacting with educators to ensure our integrated assessment solutions solve their problems and unmet needs. In addition to charting our course, the role includes leading our teams in building new assessment capabilities to delight customers and save them time. Ultimately, you’ll be a pivotal contributor to Turnitin achieving its mission of ensuring the integrity of global education and meaningfully improving learning outcomes.

Unifying our assessment offerings is a highly technical and cross-functional role, so you’ll need the technical chops and people skills to collaborate with engineering, product managers from the separate offerings, and our AI and platform services teams. You’ll report directly to the Senior Director of Grading & Feedback and work extensively with peers in UX, Engineering, Integrations, Data Science, Instructional Design, and Product Strategy.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Develop an in-depth understanding of Turnitin’s capabilities and workflows for essay, paper-to-digital, and online assignments.
  • Define, drive, and translate elements of our assessment strategy into a product roadmap while maintaining visibility and alignment across the portfolio.
  • Identify and prioritize assessment market opportunities aligned to our mission and go-to-market strategy
  • Talk to educators and be their voice in our product decisions.
  • Identify and understand the problems we are solving for teachers, administrators, and students.
  • Dive deep to determine the root cause of challenges, identify opportunities, and create solutions.
  • Work with professional services, support, product writers, product marketing, and sales to plan and execute go-to-market activities.


  • 8+ years of experience as a Principal Product Manager, Product Manager, Product Director, or similar role
  • 5+ years of experience working with SaaS technologies
  • Strong technical understanding of cloud architecture and services
  • Strategic thinker
  • Demonstrated success in creating new business models through upselling, alliances, or other means
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to influence by partnering and aligning with stakeholders
  • Passion for Learning -- the ability to quickly learn about our markets and products, study client needs and user experience gaps, and enable our clients’ learning success 
  • Collaboration -- the ability to develop healthy, productive relationships with various stakeholders (engineering, operations, sales, clients, etc.)
  • Execution -- the ability to organize, define, and deliver work of high quality on time
  • Prioritization -- the ability to balance priority and investment in pursuit of multiple business objectives, setting clear expectations about what is and is not the priority with internal stakeholders

Highly Desired Skills

  • Expertise in Edtech or educational assessment
